We got to see the little ones for a good hour or so and it was such a relief! I always get so worried right before the appointment and I know there is no need for that. Its so fun to watch them wiggle around, move their arms/legs and even stick their tongues out!! I can't remember which baby it was, but it was super cute to watch.
After the ultrasound I met with a different doctor than I usually see because my doc was all booked up for that day. Brian didn't stay for the follow up because his back was really hurting and his parents were at our house watching the girls. It was interesting to meet with someone new with a new perspective on things. She asked me about what I was planning to do about the birth, etc. I said that I didn't know yet and that I really didn't want to make a decision super early because who knows if I will really have a choice in the matter. She also asked if I planned on having more kids and I said that it was a possibility because I still have 3 frozen embryos that I need to do something with. After I said that, she proceeded to scare the crap out of me and tried to talk me out of having another c-section. She said that the risks go up exponentially with repeat c-sections.... risks include bleeding out, needing an emergency hysterectomy, and well death of course. I was a little shocked to hear her be so adamant about trying to do a vaginal birth but I guess its good to have all the information. The one thing I seriously hated about the previous c-section was the epidural. I did not like the feeling that I couldn't move at all... and the anesthesiologist was a total jerk. She did say that when you are laboring for a vaginal birth that they can make the epidural much lighter so that you can at least move your legs and such. I don't know. I suppose if both babies are in the perfect position to come out the old vajayjay then maybe I will give that a shot. If not, I'm not totally opposed to another c-section. It would be nice though to be able to lift my girls a lot sooner and with a c-section that would take quite a lot more time.
Speaking of which, the girls are doing just fabulous! I can't say how much I miss them since I have gone back to work though. Its been very difficult to leave their cute little faces every morning. I know they are in good hands but it doesn't make it any easier. Oh, and they will be 1 year old in just about 3 weeks!! This past year has been absolutely a dream come true!
Oh, and I can't forget to mention that we got a sneak peak at their little "parts!!" Nothing is for sure at this point, but it looks like daddy might be getting what he asked for! Check out the pictures! :)
