26 Weeks

So I had my OB appt. today and it was a very quick one. He measured the fluid which looks good (and by the way, I have had an U/S every single appt. so far). Baby A went from transverse to butt first so it seems he's having a hard time trying to turn around. Doc seems to think that he may stay this way (will have to try some of Mrs. Knight's turning tips!) I've come to terms with the fact that I really might face a c-section this pregnancy and I'm okay now. I'm coming close to the end of my pregnancy run so I think I'll manage.

I have my next appt. in two weeks when he will measure the growth again. Doc seems to think I will deliver around 35 to 36 weeks, but I am pretty confident, they will come closer to 38. I have to say 36 does sound nice though :) Here's today's pic. I know I may not look that big, but it sure feels like it!

I've pulled a muscle in my right rib area, but other than that, I'm doing pretty well so far. Not too many physical complaints!

At 26 weeks you still have PLENTY of time for him to turn. :-) I read that with twins they should be in their final position by 32 weeks. After that there just isn't much room to turn. (I'm 31 weeks, so I was sweatin' it a little bit!)

Hopefully he'll turn but you know what? C-sections aren't as awful as some lead on. Yes they suck compared to vaginal births but there are some positives to surrogacy. Either way, you'll do great.

I love it when OBs think they can say when you'll deliver. I was told around 35 weeks my first twin surro . . I made it 1 day shy of 39 LOL!

You're looking great, BTW!

Excited to finally come see how your blog is going :)
Babies can still turn. My dr. said as long as one gets head down you can try for vag birth...
