Re: Twinbit Update

stay strong mama! I read about a story where a woman was determined to twin birth her children at home... she did so alone and safely in her own home in the bath tub. Not saying that is the right thing to do but letting you know all things are possible

Re: Twinbit Update

It's such a relief...I'm feeling hopefully that I'll be able to develop a "working relationship" with the OB vs. feeling like I'm fighting for everything, kwim? Time will tell! :crossed:

As for the ultrasound, we're going again on the 19th for the 20-week Anomaly Scan, chances are better they would be able to see the genders by then. But no, haven't decided if I'm going to find out yet.

How can you NOT find out! Lol. I would have to know, but I'm not one for suprises either. I'm the one trying to open all my presents early and then tape them back up.

Re: Twinbit Update

sounds like you'll have the best dr (considering you can't have your ideal homebirth). I can't wait till the 19th (and hoping that you'll decide to find out what your having!!)

Re: Twinbit Update

Bethany,
I know it's not your ideal birth, but it sounds like a wonderful next best thing. I'm so glad your midwife was able to sit down with you and be so helpful (aren't mw's the best at communicating with you!!!)
One of my Best friends is due the 29th with twins, and she didn't find out either......that really impresses me! now i didn't find out what any of my kids were but i think having multiples i'd HAVE to!
big mama!

Re: Twinbit Update

i wish there was a midwife in our area!! but if i had to do it in a hospital i like the small hospitals. it seems as though you get more/better personal care

LOL My mother is a doula and will be there, plus my midwife as "support person" (since she can't make the medical decisions) and my DH. So I should be well supported!!
