All is good

Babies seem to be doing fine - the doc heard two different heartbeats, one at 152 and one at 158! I've lost a pound (trust me, I'm not trying) and my BP was good. We went over a bunch of my questions. A VBAC is an option, but he is concerned about my scar and the fact that he likes to see a year between pregnancies. But he said we won't even talk about that for a while. They can look at my scar hopefully on the 35 week u/s and get a better idea of how it healed. I'll also need to go into labor on my own (which I didn't do with Hulk). So - we will have a scheduled c-section at 39 - 40 weeks (he won't let me go over 40 weeks with twins), and just roll with it otherwise. Which is the best plan. I'm glad he didn't rule out a VBAC completely.

I'm also going to get an u/s next week (maybe we'll find out the genders!) and another in 6 weeks. That one in 6 weeks will be viewed by a high risk doc to be sure everything looks good. After that, I'll be getting an u/s every month to check on the growth. I'll also be getting non stress tests twice a week after 32 weeks. So, I'm off to see the doc a lot in the future. Goodie.

At least the doc office is close to my house, and my boss doesn't mind if I work from home.

Oh! And I also get to stop the progesterone. Hurrah!

In the last half of my pregnancy with the twins, I was truly excited for appointments, it meant I could leave the house and get dressed. LOL!

Glad to hear you have some nice strong heartbeats.

Glad to hear it is going well and they have nice, strong HB's!!!

My babies' heartbeats yesterday were almost identical -- 151 and 158.

I can't believe your doc is talking about going past 40 weeks! I can't even imagine making it to full term.

Hooray for stopping the progesterone! I don't miss it at all.
