Almost There

I am getting so very excited now.  I received the updated scan from SCI today. 

If you noticed from my last scan, Twin I was cephalic (head down yay) and Twin II was breached.  Twin II has also flipped upside down so both are cephalic.  Dr. Jolly did see a single circumnuchal loop of the cord - meaning that the umbilical cord was wrapped around the baby once.  This can easily resolve itself; if not, SCI will need to do a C-Section.  With that in mind, if the loop does resolve itself, I wonder if my surrogate has to have a C-Section anyway since she has the cerclage or whether vaginal birth is still possible.

I am also happy because the babies are getting nice and fat.  My surrogate is currently 31 weeks.  Twin I is measuring at 32w4d and weighs 1894grms (4.17lbs). Twin II is measuring at 32w5d and weights 1923grms (4.23lbs).  The last scan Twin I weighed 1204grms (2.65lbs) and Twin II weighed 1272grms (2.80lbs) so they both picked up some weight in the last month which is good. I'm sure my surrogate cannot wait to have these big babies lol.  Seems like both surrogate and twins are doing great.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they stay put until week 37 (full term for twins).  Week 37 will begin on August 7th.  I'm hoping they come on that day.  I cannot believe how fast time is flying.  I wish I knew the gender.  Does anyone have any predictions??  Everyone here believes they are two girls.  I believe they will both be the same gender - I have a feeling they are two girls too.  We shall see :-)  I'm attaching the scan and report below.  I hope everyone has a great weekend.

  1. I think they always do a C section for twins. Ours were fine - not breached, 37 weeks and they still did the C section. I could be wrong but I think since it's a high risk pregnancy - multiples - it's just always done. Fingers crossed for you!

    1. I remember Meg telling me that the goal is always vaginal birth; but like Bernadette said, I can't recall anyone having a vaginal delivery.

  2. I'm unaware of anyone who had a natural delivery so I would plan on the C-section. So pleased to hear that both have gained weight and are doing well. Sending many blessings your way for a healthy end to this leg of your journey!

    1. Thanks Bernadette; I think you're right. I'm unaware of anyone who had a natural delivery too so I'm thinking it will definitely be a C-Section.

  4. The cord loop i think is super common. The twins were born c-section at 37 weeks and we had a single loop for 4 weeks and double loop for the entire last week of the pregnancy. congrats on the last few weeks!
