28 weeks

Things have been going good. I had a nasty cold which made sleeping difficult, but I am over that now, so I am looking forward to a sleepy week. I had an appointment today. Babies look good. Our boy is weighing in at 2 pounds 5 ounces and our girl still bigger at 2 pounds 8 ounces. He is still kicking her in the head. If things stay as they are now, we will most likely have to have a c-section. I would prefer not to have one, but probably will not have much of a choice. Every doctor I have asked has not been overly confident in turning the second baby. I am not quite sure I want to go through a vaginal birth followed immediately by a c-section. I had some lower back pains pop up, which made me nervous, but doc says everything is good. It is difficult knowing what is normal and what is not with so many things happening at once.

Our goal is 36 weeks. Doctor claims the average for twins is 36-37 weeks, so middle of June is what we are looking at. We have been really lucky in that I have not had any major problems up until this point. My cervix is nice and long. Don't get me wrong, heartburn and vomiting are not fun, but all worth it. My back is beginning to take on more weight than it is used to, but hey, what did I expect?
