The babies are looking fantastic. Peanut (the girl) is at the 55th percentile of weight. Squiggle (the boy) is over the 70th percentile of weight. I asked for clarification and found out that, yes, these percentiles are for singleton pregnancies. So my twins weigh more than at least half the singletons do for their gestetational age. It also means that at 30 weeks, I'm carrying about 7 lbs of baby in me, but I don't care. The nurse even said that it's like I'm carrying two single pregnancies at the same time, the babies are doing so well.
More good news includes that my cervix remains at the very same length as it was 6 weeks ago. Because it's so long adnd healthy (the doc joked that I have the cervix of a 24 year old!) that means I am highly unlikely to go into preterm labor. Yay!!!
Of course, this doesn't mean anything changes for the bedrest.
The bad news is that I still have marginal/partial placenta previa. The good news is that it's not even close to being complete previa. But it's still there and they are still worried about placental abruption, etc. etc. So even while I'm doing great and the babies are doing great, I still have to be on bedrest and as the doc says " better" on my bedrest than I've been. I have been better today, although I'm not really sure what all that means.
We also found out that both babies are now head down. Peanut is no longer transverse and that horrible pain in my belly I felt in the hospital? That was Squiggle turning around. We had a clue when we couldn't find his heartbeat at the regular place and ended up moving to an entirely different quadrant. The kicks under my right elbow were also a clue.
What a waste though, huh? The babies are in perfect position (only happens 40% of the time) and we have to have a c-section.
Well, that's life and life is better if both of the babies and I are alive after delivery so C-section it is. We're now just all pulling for a c-section towards the end of my 36 weeks and not the beginning.
But the news is looking great (for the most part) and I am thrilled about it!
