Hi everyone, hope I am posting this in the right place. My husband and I found out at 32 weeks 5 days that we are expecting di/di twin girls. I am now 34 weeks 4 days and am having possible signs of HELLP Syndrome (lowered red blood cell count, slighly elevated liver enzymes, but no high blood pressure, swelling, vomiting, or headaches). At the ultrasound that revealed the twins, we saw that one is breech, the other in a weird diagonal position....semi-transverse, I guess. LOL. I have an appointment with a high risk clinic next week to get a better idea of what is happening. I have read that if you have early HELLP and twins beyond 34 weeks, sometimes, it is preferable to do a planned c-section. Has anyone on here had this type of situation? I was considering a homebirth, but there is no way I would do it with HELLP OR a transverse baby, of course. I am in Michigan and will be at the clinic at Von Voightlander in Ann Arbor. An OB I talked to said they are the best place for this kind of situation. My husband and I would appreciate any feedback, advice, or ideas. I don't want a c-section just to have one, of course, I would rather do a natural birth, even in the hospital. I wonder if they could just monitor your liver enzymes and let you try a natural birth if they were not too messed up?
