26 weeks

Had my OB appointment on Thursday. Everything looked good, pretty much. My cervix is fine, which is great! Both of the girls are still head down too. I liked that my OB wants to do vaginal is they stay head down. He said that having 2 and recovering from a C-section is not good, and I agree! I've heard too many stories about OBs who just jump to C-section. Glad I don't have one like that!

He also did measurements. Both girls' weights are perfect - 1 lb 14 oz. and 2 lbs! He did say that Sofia's head was a little big and her abdomen a little small. This is worrying me since we had a bad NT scan. He said it wasn't abnormal, but now I'm just really worried. Maya's measurements were great.

The nursery is all set up, and I will post pictures later!

Glad to hear that the girls are growing so nicely! Don't worry about the head/abdomen measurements! If your doc was worried at all he would have ordered more testing. Ultrasound measurements are pretty good, but not exact. I can't wait to see pictures of your nursery. I would have loved to have done a girlie nursery, but our house is only two bedrooms so I had to do something neutral (I ended up leaving up the Winnie the Pooh from my first son). When we get a bigger house, my Ava is getting a girlie room!!!!

Glad to hear that your doctor isn't "c-section happy." All my doctors said they would let me try a vaginal delivery as long as Baby A was heads down. Hopefully your girls stay put!!

I hope the girls stay head down- the first time I saw a vaginal twin delivery last year- it was absolutely amazing! Much better than the c-sect that I helped with in nursing school- just because Mom was more involved with the entire process- and it was just awesome to see! I still get chills everytime I witness a delivery and twins are even more special. I have to agree with everyone else- listen to your doc- I know that it is hard especially after trying for so long- but try to relax- sometimes the u/s measurements don't tell the whole picture. Hang in there!
