Things Change Quickly In Pregnancy

In my last post I pointed out that these babies have been preferring breech and transverse positions.  Well, that has recently changed.  I now sense, and have somewhat confirmed from the nurses’ doppler trackings, that baby A is on my right, and baby B is on my left.  If I were to guess, I’d say that they are both vertex.  I saw my OB the other day, and he said that sounds about right – eventually transverse becomes uncomfortable for them.

I had a bit of a scare yesterday and was sent to L&D for monitoring.  Thankfully, I wasn’t contracting (good, I didn’t think I was), and it wasn’t amniotic fluid that I leaked. 

But I started thinking . . . the two times I’ve had needs after hours, I’ve been referred to an on-call OB.  My OB has a solo practice with a CNM.  It seems like all of the OBs in town pool together for call?  I’m really uncomfortable with this arrangement and need to bring it up with my doc next appointment.  Then I’ll likely write about Tribal Obstetrics, loosely modeled after the chapter of the same title in Dr. Wagner’s Born In the USA.

  1. I saw your comment on Refuse to be a Wombpod and wanted to check out your blog. I had twins by c/s with my first pregnancy and am hoping for a vbac with my next. I wanted to wish you the best of luck that your babies will be head down at delivery and you will get your vbac! Great blog:)

  2. Hey- I really hope all goes well and you don’t end up with a c-section! But, yes, Natural Health After Birth does talk about some remedies to help with healing after a c-section! It is a great book for ANY woman who has given birth! Oh, and thanks for stopping by my blog!

  3. Hi! First of all, thanks for visiting my blog. :) I love meeting new people.
    I read a bit of your blog and want you to know I’ll be praying for you and your twins. I can’t imagine what a pregnancy of 2 babies feels like. (i’m a wimp carrying one!) ;)
    Keep taking great care of yourself and those babies. :)
