Once again, everything is looking great. I get a gold star. Baby A is still breech. Fun, fun. This is about the point where they pretty much stay the way they are. I was told 28-30 weeks is when they are usually in their final position. I turn 28 weeks on Friday. And Baby B is still laying transverse. The further I get, the less likely they are to turn.
Baby A is estimated at 2 lbs, 5 oz and Baby B at 2 lbs, 10 oz. Funny, because last time I was there, Baby A was bigger by 2 oz. I know it's all just a guess anyway. And because my cervix continues to look so good, I got to cancel my appointment in 2 weeks to look at it again. So I just have one more cervix check in 4 weeks with my growth ultrasound and then I'm done with that. And I have another growth ultrasound in 8 weeks, when I will be nearly 36 weeks.
I had a really hard time during this ultrasound. Kept feeling out of breath, dizzy, sick, etc. I had to take a break and sit up about 5 times. Thankfully, the tech was understanding about it. I didn't have this problem at all when I was there 2 weeks ago. I know it's only going to get worse, too. I was also instructed to pass my 3 hour glucose test tomorrow. Not that I have much control over it but I told her I'd try.

Now..is it different with twins...because singletons can turn very late in the game..but I suppose your little beans run out of room quicker. I hope they turn for you!!

It's getting closer!!!!!

Sounds like a great u/s! I hope they flip for you, but I know that with twins they run out of room pretty quickly. Good luck with your glucose test!
Thank you *Kiliki* for the awesome siggie!

I'm not really sure. I asked the dr one time and he said that usually by 28-30 weeks, they are pretty much where they're going to stay. Of course, they could still turn but it's less likely. I know that at 28 weeks, Krysta was breech and she did eventually turn. These babies have been breech/transverse ever since my NT scan at 13 weeks. They just will not turn. It's a little frustrating. 5 vaginal births and something like this is going to end me up with a c-section. Oh well, at least I can get my tubes tied then. They have 10 weeks to change their minds.

Wahoo! Glad things are going well!

Caleb and Lynndi were breech/transverse also. I think I was told 30-32 weeks? So maybe you still have a little wiggle room... no pun intended. Caleb did turn, but only so his head was on my left instead of on my right. Lynndi didn't move out of her one spot hardly the whole time.

But I sure had more u/s than that! They aren't doing another one for a whole 8 weeks? WOW! Must be doing very well then. Grats and hang in there!!

Much thanks to Alethia for my beautiful siggie and tags!!

No, I have one in 4 weeks and probably my last one in 8 weeks. I was going in every 2 weeks but they told me today that I didn't need to do that any more. Of course, that's assuming that no problems pop up between now and then. I'm assuming if I end up with GD, they'll have me back more often. But for now, every 4 weeks.

I'm praying your little ones decide to move once and for all and stay head down! ((HUGS)) I hope they choose to make the grand entrance though the birth canal

FX you pass your GD test tomorrow! (and you don't get sick from it). KUP!

Hat's off to Vicki for my cute siggy, thank you!

I'm pretty sure breech transverse is the most ineffective way to use the limited space they have in there. If they were both transverse, both breech, both vertex or vertex/breech, I'm sure that would help out my lung space. Between being so out of breath all the time and my iron being so low (9.8 with a prenatal vitamin AND iron supplement), I can hardly do anything. I just want to sleep all day long. I'm on a prescription iron supplement now and I'm hoping that brings my levels up. I really had no idea a twin pregnancy would be so hard on my body. I'm still young and relatively healthy but this is kicking my butt.
