34 Week Appointment

We had our 34 week check-up yesterday. It feels to me like things keep constantly changing with this pregnancy and it's kind of exhausting.

We started our appointment yesterday with a growth ultrasound. I got so nervous because the gal doing it kept flipping back and forth between the babies and then stopped and said she had to check her report. I was so scared, but she came back and showed us Baby A's kidneys. One of them has almost no fluid around it. She was excited for us and we were excited. They are estimating Baby A to be about 5 lbs. 11 oz. (although he could be bigger, but his head is so low she had a hard time getting an accurate measurement) and Baby B about 5 lbs. 13 oz. She also did a four part test on each of them and they each scored 8 out of 8. I can't remember all the components, but that's another plus.

I was on the monitor for awhile and the heartbeats looked great and I didn't have any contractions. The doctor was at the hospital, so we purposely stayed so we could get his take on the kidney thing (it was the doctor we liked). He came and said he hopes it's a positive on the kidney front, but we'll have to wait and see. We understood that, but it's been such a hard road we like to think optimistically when we can.

Dr. Wang also talked about delivery. And the fact that he thinks we'll go ahead with a vaginal delivery. I was like, WHAT?! The other doctor said (and I explained) and he said with me having such big babies before he doesn't see a problem with a vaginal delivery. Soooo....that threw us for a loop! Dr. Wang would like to see us make it to 37 weeks (April 8th-ish) and if I haven't gone on my own, we will be induced.

Personally, I think if I make it to the end of March, that would be a miracle! I will head back down next Friday for another appointment.

Just tell them that Grandpa said they have wait at least until April 2. And that he used his firm voice that tells you that he means it.
