Growing right along...

Well today's OB appt went great. It was just the basics: urine analysis, blood pressure, weight, OB blood panel, etc. Then they surprised me with an u/s! Of course, I wasn't about to turn that down! Babies were doing great and everything looks well! :) Dr. K is going to see us again in 4 weeks, but he said we'll go back to every 2 weeks when we hit the 22 week mark. He gave me a prescription for Phenergan gel, so I hope it will help some with the nausea and not make me too tired.

I also discussed my labor preferences with him. He's willing to let me attempt a natural delivery, as long as baby A is head down. He was reluctant at first because he didn't think I'd want a manual version if baby B was not head down (where he has to reach up there and manually turn the baby) without sedation. But I quickly reminded him that he had to manually extract the placenta during my last delivery and I was not sedated for that. He said it would be about the same. As much fun as that was NOT, I told him it's a risk I'm willing to take. Anyway, I feel so much better after talking to him about it. :)

Well here are this week's pics of the sweet babies!



Niki is out of surgery and is doing OK, as far as I know. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers!

I had a manual turn with baby B with my set of surrogate twins as she went breach after he was born. Better than a c-section!

Good luck!!

we love the gel here, so much easier than the other options
