I had an ultrasound and doctors appointment yesterday and everything went well. The placenta moved so I no longer have placenta previa so that is good news. The doctor said I no longer have to be on pelvic rest. The babies looked pretty cute in the ultrasound, the little girl was 2lbs and the boy was just a little over 2lbs. My doctor still doesn't want me to leave the city because of the risks of pre-term labour with twins. My family has a camping trip planned in a month and I am pretty disappointed I can not go, but I would feel pretty foolish if something were to happen while I was gone.
Glad all is well. My OB said she thinks my placenta moved up too, but I have an appt on the 11th with the MFM to confirm.
For the camping trip, I would probably go too, but that is only cause I missed out on a lot of stuff with my first just because my doctor told me to stick close. Provided you can get to a hospital within an hour, I think you should be good. Maybe just avoid 10 mile hikes into the wilderness
yes, i can have them vaginally now, but he did strongly encourage an epidural. I didnt have one with my daughter and was hoping to do it without again, but I think I may go for the epidural now. The thing is if the second baby gets in a strange position after the first baby is born they actually stick their hand inside me to manipulate the baby out of me. I kind of want to be medicated if that has to happen.
if you do end up with the epidural I'd look into a peanut ball if I were you... I understand your concern, but I've heard great things about laboring with a peanut ball, and there are lots of things you can do to encourage your labor while having an epidural with it.
If you decide not to do the epidural though I met a twin mama once who delivered vaginally and had them pull baby number two out like that, she says it isn't fun, but you forget it like you would any other part of labor.. not that you forget it all together, but that it is just another part of the process and you don't think much about it later.
