Everyday is starting to feel just like the next, and sadly, I do not have much to blog about.

I had my last growth scan at the MFM specialist today. The fluid around Baby A is still the same as it was last time, which is quite a bit compared to her sister's. She is also HUGE and significantly bigger than her sister as well. She now weighs 8 lbs. 10oz!!!!! I was shocked and had to ask the tech if I had heard her correctly. Baby B weighs 5 lbs. 8 oz. and that is more within the normal range.

When the doctor came in to see us, she wanted to take a peek at the babies too. They look great, and since they do not share a placenta nor do I have gestational diabetes, she is not too concerned about the size difference. Both babies are head up and are laying diagonally across my belly. She seemed pretty certain that a C-Section was in my future. Now, we just have to see what Dr. Wisebaker has to say when I see her on Thursday. I don't know if she is going to want to do another ultrasound herself in another week or so, or if she wants to just schedule a C-Section. Personally, I am hoping that she will just schedule the c-section already. I know that c-sections are harder to recover from, more invasive, etc. but really, I am ready to get a plan in motion. I am ready to have these babies!!

I may be right there with you. Due to some of my problems we are talking c-section now too. I won't know for sure until my 34 week appt. Praying for you!
