And the verdict is…

So I had my ultrasound this morning and I was very worried. It felt to me like June had flipped breech again and I was dreading the c section battle again. As I lied on the table the tech put the wand on the upper right side of my belly and announced “that’s a head” (I could see that on the screen anyways). As my heart sank way down to my toes, she moved the wand and said “it’s baby B”.
WHAA? Then she checked down lower and said “here is baby A her head is down”. As she showed me her chubby cheeks I wanted to scream with joy No C Section!!!


June's chubby cheeks 🙂

The Dr. made it official at my appointment. They cancelled the surgery and booked us in for an induction instead. I am a little torn because I would like them to decide when they come out, but that could be another week from now and I don’t know how that will necessarily benefit them since they measure almost 40 weeks and I am physically a hot mess. I wouldn’t want to put their health at risk and studies show twins born after 39 weeks have a higher mortality rate.

It’s gonna be a long night worrying about the induction not working, babies flipping and all the last minute details I seem to think I have forgotten. It will also be my last quiet night for a very looong time so I will try to enjoy it as much as I can.

Finger crossed!
