Flipper

A week ago, on the verge of 33 weeks pregnant, we discovered via my weekly ultrasound that "Baby B" had flipped to breech position. Obviously not the ideal. And also kind of late in the game for babies to actually have the room to maneuver like that! The ultrasound tech was really surprised! Both babies have been head down since we started monitoring them through ultrasound at about 22 weeks. Although not the end of the world, I would much prefer to have these babies naturally, and there is controversy among the doctors in this particular practice about whether it's okay to deliver naturally if the first baby is head down and the second one is breech. I've definitely set myself up with a picture in my mind of how delivery is going to go, and it doesn't include a c-section.

After a week of prayer, Baby B was seen on ultrasound today once again head down!

That's one adventurous kid! Definitely one for the wild twisty rides and upside-down roller coasters.

I am once again thanking the Lord for a "yes" answered prayer. God has His hand on these little ones! These babies were planned by the best "planner" of all!

That is a HUGE praise! Do the doctors have an idea of how close to term you will last carrying twins? 33 weeks is great! You could only have a handful of weeks to go!

36 weeks is kind of the goal, and they won't let me go longer than 38 weeks, so 2-4 weeks left! Still seems like a long time...
I prefer to think of it in terms of the end of March.
Can't wait to hear your own news!

I thought you said that B was the laid back one! :) It's so fun to watch your progress, since I'll be going through the same thing soon. Can't wait to get our four together! And, I don't know if there's any chance that you might do this, but I would love to see a belly picture. Just a thought!

Ummm....please don't post a belly picture on your blog.

Any picture right now of me would qualify as a belly picture.
