So I am at 28w5d with my frat girls. I am definitely huge i think measuring at about 34 weeks. I still feel great but getting more uncomfortable.
I would like advice/comfort as I am totally starting to freak out. Mostly because I want a natural vaginal birth and the odds seem against me, although I am using a very respected midwife who is all natural and my baby A is head down and all. I am just so afraid they will come early, and for me that means needing to go to Boston which is NOT twin friendly, natural, non-invasive. Very scary. I HAVE to make it to 36-37 weeks at least to deliver in my hospital of choice which is soo laid back and is as close to a homebirth I could get. Any other twin mommys finding it difficult in this era of interventions?
My last concern is with the amount of ultrasounds they want for me. I was blind and stupid early on and went to a scheduled 8 week ultrasound, completely unnecessary. I knew thge moment of conception, I knew my due date and yet I went anyway to "verify". I found out about the twins at 8 weeks but i really wish I had been more aware and waited for the 18 week ultrasound. But I cannot dwell in the past... so even after switching from an OBGYN office to my midwife at about 24 weeks even she felt better with another ultrasound to make sure they were growing at the same rate. They are di/di btw and I am positive they will be fine. But since the midwife was sending me to a new facility with a specialist that i would need to meet anyway in case of an emergency i went for my third ultrasound.
I am glad I went bc the specialist was soo nice and i loved her/ feel really comfortable in her ability to help me if i go before 36 weeks.. and of course the babies look great, my cervix is perfect etc...
So now facing another ultrasound at 30 weeks and probably every month after ... I am feeling really strongly about cancelling. I just feel like its sooo uneccessary and the "what ifs" are ridiculous. They are really getting in the way of my instincts and my emotions. Its actually more stress than I need and all I really want to do is hang out in my house, read books, organize and finish the nursery and enjoy my next few weeks of ME, because OMG theres two babies! lol
Anyway, help me feel better? lol
