34 Week Update.

Guess who is still breech? You guessed it - both of them! So, that means we also have a planned "birthday" (aka planned c-section) - March 30th. Yes, that is 34 days away. I'm both encouraged and discouraged by this.

I'm now 34 weeks, and if I make it to March 30th, I'll be 2 days shy of 39 weeks. Considering the fact that I'm already measuring 45 weeks, I dread the discomfort I'll be in by then. Don't get me wrong, I want them in as long as they need to be, and actually prefer the idea of the later date as it allows time for my body to start the labour process itself. But, come on! Can I really stand to be pregnant for another 34 days?!?!? Oy.

But, the good news is that both babies are doing fabulously. They're estimated to weigh about 5 lbs each and continue to score 8/8 on their biophysical profiles. Physiologically, my body is doing well, but physically I'm in hell. My list of complaints is growing daily, so think twice about asking how I'm feeling, you may be in for a rant of epic proportions.

I also now have to start coming to terms with the reality that my VBAC dreams are fading. It's not for lack of trying, that's for sure. And, there's still a small part of me that's holding onto hope that twin A (girl) defies predictions and turns around. So, let the countdown begin.


  1. March 30 DID sound a tad far away at first Sweetie but I know you can do it and truly admire your courage and even being able to maintain a sense of humour under duress !!

    Looking foward to spending the last few weeks with you while the twins are still being "cooked" ....God Bless !! xo

  2. all the best Jenn!
    for your sake I hope this month flies by....go find a warm pool to float in and maybe you can get the girlie to flip....
    Thinking of you every day
