At 28w 5d,we found out we're having twins.I was seeing a midwife an planning a VERY non-medical intervention birth.However from my 23-26 week check up my uterus grew 14 centimeters!My midwife was concerned it was polyhydramnio(too much amniotic fluid). After researching polyhydramnio, I consented to having anultrasound. Surprise! Baby "A" could hide no more,lol.They think I am most likely having twin boys
My midwife does not catch twins and currently does not have hospital priviledges. I was planning a freestanding birth center birth. Tomorrow I go to my last midwife appt. and she will give me a referral to an Ob.I am planning to have a doula present to advocate for me and my babies.
To answer some questios I read in previous posts: my twins were conceive the old fashioned way. I had long suspected something was up b/c I felt movement at 13 weeks!!!I began showing early and BIG,eventhough I have only gained 16 lbs and I am 30 weeks!!I had MUCH more sickness with these babes than with my 7 y/o.
How accurate do ya'll think ultrasounds are at figuring fetus' weights? On the day we found out we were having twins(at 28 weeks) we were told Baby "A" was just over 3lbs and Baby "B" was 2 lbs 11 oz's. People have told me that is HUGE for twins and ultrasounds are not at all accurate in regards to fetal size.
Happy baby growing to all,
Ds #1 just about to turn 12 y/o
Ds #2 almost 8 y/o
EDD with twin boys 4/6/03
