OB Update

So in news just in our babies will be arriving in the next 2 weeks!  Basically the OB said today best case scenario is that we will have an elective C-section at 34 weeks (next Sunday) but if my Doppler readings further deteriorate on Friday or next Tuesday possibly sooner.  Either way by this time next week I am likely to be in hospital as will need to have steroids before the delivery.  I am half excited and half terrified.  Things are starting to get very real!!!!  Keep everything crossed we can make it another week and a half!

  1. Wow! Good luck. I am set to have my twins at 36.4 weeks in 8 days. So I may just beat you. Hopefully I do. If you can keep them in till 34 that would be great. I had a steroid injection today and have the follow up tomorrow. It went in my backside and didnt really hurt. No side effects so far. Once again, good luck. Don’t be scared. The Dr’s are very experienced, the nicu staff know what they are doing and will take excellent care of your bubs. And your bubs have made it to a relatively good point xo

  3. Hang on in there little ones! 🙂 you’re getting the very best care and lots of attention from the doctors which is great, so whenever your babies come they will be very well looked after. Hoping for more cooking time for you, but excited to hear the good news of their safe arrival too! Xxx

  4. You and I started following each other when we were both in the depths of it with no hope in sight. I now have a 7 month old baby girl (adopted) and you are about to give birth to twins. We don’t know each other, but know, that I have waves of emotion for you and happiness tingling through my body. It seems like a long time ago when the struggle was just so real, and yea the struggle of parenthood is just the beginning, but to finally to be allowed on to that ride…the roller coaster of parenthood is so relieving. a ride we were told we were too short to go on, for too long….a ride that has up and down as it may be on, we are just so happy to experience all the twist and turns. Conngratulations, as crazy as all this may be, and the birthing process as well, congratulations on what’s about to be a very well deserved new chapter. I can’t contain how happy I am for you, for us.

    1. Thank you so much. The amazing thing about blogging has been the very real connections made with women all over the world, women who I will probably never meet but who I have shared my ups and downs and hopes and dreams with. I know how invested I have become in many of their journeys as many have in mine, some who have had those dreams fulfilled and some who are yet to. I have laughed out loud with them, felt such excitement for them and shed a tear in their tragedy. Thank you for being one of those connections xx

  5. Wow! 2 weeks! I am so excited for you to experience that moment of holding your child for the first time– and you get to do it twice!! It is such an amazing experience and one you will look back on for the rest of your life. Take lots of pictures and little video clips. I heard beforehand how fast they grow, but I think the newborn stage seems even shorter when you’ve waited a disproportionate amount of time to get there! I was ready for “fast” but I wasn’t ready for warp-speed. They literally change by the day at first, and you will want to remember it all. And then, just enjoy it. 🙂 I’m all the way across the world from where you are, but you’ll be in my thoughts as you prepare to meet the rewarding results of all your hard work and perseverance!
