Possibly TWINS!! UPDATE: U/S RESULTS!!!

UPDATE 7/22 POST #45


UPDATE 7/17I am scheduled for Wednesday the 22nd at noon! I can't wait...this is killing me! I did go for a quick scan yesterday by a friend who works in a clinic. She is only trained to do very basic U/S to see if pregnancies are viable. We think we saw 2, however there was a lot of movement and it was quite hard to make the call. The placenta looked huge to me. It looked as though one baby was laying to the front right side in the vertical bottom down position and then it looked as though there was a baby laying to the back of the left side and they were facing each other. That baby looked to be head down. At one point we were talking and I felt a huge movement on my right side that shook my belly. So she started scanning again and it now looked as though baby on the right had flopped and was now head down! There seemed to be a head in the lower left quadrant and also in the lower right quadrant. She scanned up my belly and at that point we got a great shot between the legs...I am about 95% sure I saw girl parts!! I cannot wait until Wed!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
<--- This was me yesterday when my midwife said there is a great possibility there are *2* babies! Now that might be great news when it's your 1st, 2nd even 3rd child, but my 8th?!? We have actually been suspicious of this for weeks now, but as I have been in TOTAL denial, I just hadn't made an issue of it. Now that my midwife is suspecting 2, it's a little more real. I'm going to schedule an U/S within the next few days, so we will know for sure. When I was 14 weeks along I had mentioned to my midwife that dh and I had been listening with our doppler and heard a 130's HR and a 160's HR. She listened with her fetoscope, but it was too early to hear anything (she will not use a doppler that early). So she measured me and I was 2 weeks ahead...which is not out of the norm for me. The following months prenatal, I measured 6 weeks ahead. She heard a HB, but baby was super active and kept running away. Yesterday I measured 9 WEEKS ahead and my midwife decided to see if she could feel baby(ies). She felt a baby laying in the vertical head down postion, then she *thinks* she felt a baby laying horizontally behind the other baby. She heard only one HB, but she said *if* there is another back behind, then it could be difficult to pick it up.

My real hang up in this is not really the fact of having twins, but this may disqualify me for my much wanted home birth . I have had 5 successful VBAC's, but I know few, if any Dr's would be willing to allow me to VBAC with twins. Our last birth was at home and it was amazing! I just wanted that again. First thing we have to do is find out just how many are in there. Until then, I'm trying to not think of the rest.

Re: Possibly TWINS!!

How many weeks are you now? Before 20 and fundal height is pretty inaccurate, especially in a grand multipara mama. Fundal height in a grand multipara past 20 weeks in unreliable and be all over the map.

But you can have twins at home, many mamas have, even VBAC. If we were blessed again I will be staying home!
