OB Appointment

I had an OB appointment today.  My legs and ankles started swelling last night so I was glad I already had this appointment scheduled.  My blood pressure is fine and there was no protein in my urine so they aren't too concerned with pre-eclampsia at this point.  She said I need to be resting more and off my feet as much as possible.  Addyson is already engaged in my pelvis and Kynley is no longer transverse - she's completely breech.  My uterus is measuring 41 weeks.  Basically, this could happen at any point or it could still be a few weeks.  They are going to check me next week to see if I've started to dilate.  I see the specialist on Monday so we'll get approximate weights at that appointment.  It's getting closer!!


  1. April, do they ever let you deliver naturally with twins, or is that an automatic C-section? If you can go natural, it is possible for a breech baby to be "flipped" - they did it with my Henry in the delivery room, and it worked! Either way, can't wait to see your beautiful girls! It will be here so soon!

  2. Hi Sheri! Yes, as long as Baby A remains head down they will let me attempt natural. I've made it clear this is what I want to do so they know it's important to me. I have another appointment with the specialist tomorrow so we'll see what's going on. If they can't turn Baby B once A is out, I have one doctor that will attempt a breech extraction and one that will take me back for a c-section. There's just so many ways this could go! So you had a version with Henry? How painful was it??
