I was at the chiro today for Webster technique, and she is cutting me down to once a week. Apparently, the tandem care I have been receiving from the 2 different docs. is working so well that I have no alignment issues with my pelvis, and my ligaments are so loose that the babies are literally flipping around constantly. It is amazing that I have no real pain at 35.5 weeks. Most of the time I am able to move around comfortably despite my hugeness and all the cntx (as of Friday every 8-10 minutes by official counts.). I am getting discouraged though. These babies move so much the NST nurses sometimes have to stand over me for 10-15 minutes moving the monitors around following the babies just to get a trace on their heart tones. After 30 minutes of monitoring they will move me into u/s to check my fluid levels and the babies won't be anywhere near where we found their heartbeats. I am running out of time to prepare myself. If they aren't head down at 37 weeks I will have to consent to the c/s. The best possible outcomes for mother and babies in twin deliveries of all types are found between 37.5 and 38.5 weeks. All I want are healthy babies, but I don't want a c/s. I have tried everything I can think of to get these kiddos heading in the right direction. The problem is they are moving soooo much they have not fixed on any position, and have not engaged. It seems this is pretty unheard of with such big twins, but there is nothing I can do about this. I am really having trouble letting this go. My last pregnant friend gave birth today. I know I am feeling the crunch more now because, "I'm next" but I am really struggling today. Sorry for the ramble. Thanks for reading.
