25w6d: We're Still Here

Well hello there, blogosphere. I missed you! I have no excuse for my lack of posting and commenting other than utter exhaustion. Who knew growing 2 babies at once was such hard work?

When last I updated I had just gone to the MFM for a check-up and everything looked good and they told me to come back in 4 weeks.  Well, 4 weeks was up today so I was back in there.  The babes are still doing very well - they're both head UP now (little stinkers) but they have been doing A LOT of repositioning lately (especially Zoe), so there's still plenty of hope they'll turn themselves back around in the next 4 weeks.

So, we decided how to decide on the anticipated C-section vs. vaginal delivery options.  If they are both head down at 30 weeks, we will hold tight and attempt a vaginal delivery if nothing changes.  If either of them are breech or transverse, we will schedule the C for 38 weeks (around February 17th-ish).

We tried getting a 3D ultrasound on Saturday, but neither baby was feeling particularly photogenic, so we are going back this coming Saturday to try again.  We could tell that both babies have hair (gasp!). I am used to bald babies - this will take some adjusting for my psyche (luckily/hopefully I have several weeks to get my mind around it).

I think, unbelievably, that the ultrasounds are becoming anti-climactic. We had the 22nd one today, so that might have something to do with it. I asked Forest if he remembered those early scans where we were so excited to see that they had arms! and legs! and brains!  I am just spoiled rotten now, huh?

I am pretty excited that we are now in the DOUBLE DIGIT countdown to 40 weeks! As of today, there are 99 days left!

And on that note, I am off to finish the work day so I can go home and nap!

Muah!

So good to hear from you! You are doing great!

Maddy came out with a full head of short blond hair. You rarely see babies with blond hair at birth, usually dark haired ones have all the hair. It is so fun to have that hair now to play with. You will love it!

I just have 1 request about the birth and 1 suggestion. My request: I will be in Jamaica from Feb. 5th - 11th...so you can't have them on those days.

My suggestion: February 15th is my birthday and is a great day to have a baby (or two)

So excited that you've made it this far!!!
