We had another office visit today. We usually see one of two doctors in the practice, and while we do like them both and think highly of them both, they do not agree on the way the will perform the c-section. They each have valid reasons, and they are both very qualified, wonderful doctors. We find ourselves confused and not sure what is best. One of the doctors thinks it is best to do a classical incision, and the other thinks it will be best to do a transverse incision. I will not go into all the reasons each has for their theory, but they are sound and well thought-out. It is hard on us that they do not agree with eachother. We just want what is best for the boys and for my health, as well as protecting my uterus for future pregnancies.
We also learned today about the exact medicines I was given during the c-section with Billie,and found what likely caused me to forget the first 6 hours after her birth. We are so glad the doctor was able to figure that out for us, and that can be off of our minds now. We were so worried since it is likely we will only have a short time with our boys, I can not afford to forget even a second of their lives. Every minute we have with them will be so precious to us, and I feel so much better after our visit today.
We got to see the boys on ultrasound today, and they are turned sideways with their heads on the left of my belly and their feet on the right. Their heartbeat is strong, and they looked sweet and adorable. We know they are active and strong by their kicks, but it is always comforting to see them and to hear their heartbeat.
We do have some new pics to share, and I will try to get them posted over the next couple of days. Thank you all for your prayers and your support. It is amazing to us that we have made it to 32 weeks, but we know it would not be possible with out God and your prayers have helped us get here.
