Spinning babies

OMG! Here we come third trimester! We had our appointment last week and all is well with the womb. The boys are measuring 2lbs. 7 oz and 2 lbs. 9 oz. I've got 5lbs worth of baby going on! I can't believe it. They are moving and kicking up a storm in there. The last appointment I went to they were   both breech and I was pretty nervous about the thought of having a scheduled c-section.  I really want to try and labor for a bit even if it does end in a c-section.   I googled everything possible to get these guys to turn around and found this website. It is pretty amazing. I've been standing on my head (literally) a few times a week for a minute and this appointment they were both head down :) I felt pretty silly at the time but it worked, now they just need to stay that way. We go every 2 weeks now so we shall see. Some other things I'm tempted to try if they don't stay head down: moxa sticks, accupuncture, more headstands, and a chiropractic visit.  I also had the ob measure my tummy and I am measuring 34 weeks which is right on track for twins at 28 weeks.
Well that's all for now...feeling much better since the last post about coming into my own as a mom. Thanks for all the encouragement! We are rounding the corner and I am started to freak out  get excited!  SO happy to see everyone's birth stories popping up and can't wait for more!


  1. Happy 3T! I can't imagine what it must feel like to have babies kicking around inside of you - amazing I'm sure. That's awesome that the whole standing on your head thing worked! The nursery looks adorable and I love that you've found so many steals on baby gear. I too love a good deal. :)

    I'm just now catching up on posts and wanted to tell you that I felt very much the same when coming into my own as a mama. For me, the realness didn't kick in until the last month or two. You're almost there!

  2. Glad the boys are in the right position now! Happy times for the third trimester! I'm so excited to see them finally as I am sure you are too! I also can't wait to read your birth story as we read everyone else's lately! :)
