Re: Twin ultrasound pic!

Bethany they were vertex,vertex for most of the pregnancy, and they were vertex,vertex when they were born vaginally. They were vertex,breech at some points (A vertex, B breech) but never for very long. I have never really understood whether they were actually transverse in this pic. It may just be the perspective, but I don't know enough about how the ultrasound machines enough to be able to tell. They were definitely vertex, vertex by about 21 weeks. Vertex, vertex is the most common orientation at delivery, followed by vertex, breech. For them to stay in a transverse position would be quite rare, I would think. As the pregnancy goes on they will naturally move into the position that takes up the least room.
