Hey ya'll! Just wanted to write a quick post to let you all know that our twin girls will be born tomorrow morning, Tuesday 7/29/14 via c-section at 10ish am!
We really wanted to try for a VBAC, and we had clearance from my high risk doctor, assuming that all circumstances were perfect, such as my blood pressure, babies heart rates, baby positions etc. We were right on track until last week when the doctor found that what I thought was Baby A had moved up under my ribs and is now completely transverse (sideways). They are not too fond of vaginal deliveries of twins when they are not both head down with all of my high risk factors.
The interesting thing is that we were so back and forth on what delivery method to go with. We finally thought VBAC after being given a semi green light. However, last Tuesday night my husband casually mentioned that he was worried about me delivering vaginally. So that of course shook my confidence. That night I prayed about it and then Wednesday, on the way to the hospital for my non stress test (NST) I prayed pretty heavily about what God's will was for this birth and that it would be revealed to me. So then the doctor does an ultrasound and finds that the one baby is no longer head down. This means that a VBAC is all but off the table (no pun intended) and that my only hope for a VBAC would be if the baby miraculously turned head down in the next week-ish.
I left that appointment feeling really bummed that the option of a VBAC had been snatched from me, but also sort of content with the fact that I had prayed for and possibly received a sign of God's will for this birth. But a large part of me still held out hope that the baby would turn and we would be right back on track. Here it is 9pm the night before my scheduled surgery and I guess no one turned (she hadn't as of Saturday) so it looks like I will be in surgery tomorrow!
Please keep all of us in your prayers!
