Rocco @ 8:09 am weighing 6lbs 13 oz
Monday, July 13, 2009
And it looks like c-section is official. Last month Taegan was head down and Rocco wasn't... since Rocca is Twin A he HAS to be head down for a regular delivery. Well now NEITHER are head down! I guess Taegan decided to follow Rocco's lead and turn himself back around... oh well what can you do!
And I just have to share a story about Rocco... he is waaay down low in by belly... his feet are on my cervix, which actually explains a lot. Well they were trying to get a picture of it but they couldn't with Rocco's foot there so she would push down with the wand and move it around to get him to move and move did he!! He proceeded to kick the sh** out of my poor cervix :( Let me just say it doesn't feel good at all... but the lady was bound and determined to get him to move so she kept on... obviously she has never met Rocco so it was a war of wills and my poor cervix lost :( But Taegan isn't so innocent here either... He is literally on top of my lungs.. the lady was like "wow you must have a really hard time breathing!"
Like I said in my post yesterday.... I'm pretty uncomfortable these days :)

While I am complaining let me just tell you about this lady the other day. I am walking in this outside plaza at a medical building... the car says it is a 116 degrees outside... so needless to say it was pretty freaking hot!! I had already been out and about for several hours with my weekly doctor appts... so I guess I didn't look like the happiest 15 month pregnant lady out there (a little dramatic I know!) Anyways this lady says "wow you look miserable" and I say ya pretty much and her friend says "maybe next time you should plan a little better." WOW!! REALLY? Where was the genius lady when I needed her 9 months ago when I told Ray "Hey lets get pregnant with twins right now so I can be huge in the middle of summer!" People continue to blow my mind... and I hear once the twins are actually here and you are out and about with them the comments and questions only get worse!!
Sorry for the attitude :)
Actually all in all everything is going really well! I feel truly blessed to be caring twins and feeling healthy. The boys continue to do well in their weekly Non-Stress Test. Rocco of course has to entertain himself in someway so he likes to make the nurses search very hard for him and once they find him he thinks it's really funny to be still for about 5 minutes and then hide again :) and Taegan stays in his little area the whole time... the nurses never have to go searching for him!! These boys are going to keep me busy :) And as for my doctor appts... I am not dilated, blood pressure is good. I did have to get an ultra sound on my leg to make sure there wasn't a blood clot and everything was fine with that. Aside from being swollen and my wrist hurting all is good!
As for the boys arrival date we have a C-Section scheduled for July 29th. It was originally August 3rd but I asked if we could move it up a little so I could utilize my mom's time here a little better. So I think that is like 18 days away!! The reason for the C-Section is... you'll never guess... Rocco :) Twin A has to be head down and at this point he still isn't! We have an ultra sound scheduled for Monday (7/13) Maybe... just maybe he will have moved head down!! Plus I am super anxious to see how big they are... anything over 5lbs I will be happy with.
Okay here is a 35 week belly picture... taken today!

Another update is in the baby name department. The name's are staying the same I'm just changing the spelling of one. Rocco isn't changing, but Teagan is now Taegan. The original spelling people think it is "tee"gan. But it is like Reagan on Meagan, just with a T! So in hopes to prevent a lifetime of him correcting people we decided to change :)
And last but not least for the update we found a Baby Mobile!!! We are now the owners of a 2008 Nissan Armada!! We traded in both cars (since Ray now has a company car). I've been driving it around all day and I can't lie I felt like a soccer mom :) This thing is no joke, it is huge! We definitely now have plenty of room for the twins.... and room to grow :) Here are pics....

And Teagan again...he has his knee curled up to his nose and mouth... just precious!!
Rocco!! His picture is harder to make out. Being true to character he wasn't as cooperative as Teagan :)

Bitter because I will not get to move back close to my mom and all my wonderful friends in Dallas. The thought of having my mom close by made me not so scared to have twins! But I know she will be visiting often and she is only a phone call away.
Sweet because well Ray deserves it. Plus we do really love Arizona... it holds a very special place in our hearts. We picked up and moved to a new place together and started a life for ourselves, it really strengthened our relationship and made us closer then I thought we ever could be. Also I have met some really wonderful people that truly care about Ray and I and will be a great support.
So with Ray's promotion I will be taking a leave of absence from school next year. I feel blessed that I will be able to be at home with the boys for at least the first year of their lives.
Now we need to get done to business... find a place to live, buy nursery furniture, set up the nursery, get a new car.... and the list goes on :)

So a few minutes later in walks the doctor... the first thing out of his mouth "What happened?" I am confused what do you mean? He is talking about my weight gain... I have gained 12 pounds in one month! Wow I know this might seem like a lot for one month....BUT it is the ONLY gain I have had so far in my pregnancy! I will be 23 weeks on Friday and I've only gained 12 pounds... this is how I am looking at it but Oh not the doctor! He is asking me what I'm doing differently and talking to me as if all I do is sit around and eat all day! He actually told me sometimes when I'm hungry I need to walk away from the food!! Needless to say I was extremely upset... I mean really you are going to tell a pregnant lady who is already self conscious about her changing body that she needs to walk away from the food... mean I say just mean!!
Okay venting is over :)
So we have our 2nd baby shower in El Paso this weekend!! It should be lots of fun. They have rented out a hall for the occasion so if it is anything like other El Paso visits this will be one big party :) Plus I am super excited my mom, Molly (sister-in-law), and Joey (the cutest nephew in the world) are making the trip!! I haven't seen Molly or Joey since August so I am really looking forward to that... and Ray hasn't seen them since last March!
Oh and we have an ultra sound scheduled for Monday (4/20) at 8 am... so NEW pictures of the boys coming soon!!
and one more thing... I am feeling them move all the time. Ray and I sit there at night with our hands on my belly just feeling them :) AND you can even see my belly move! Ray said it look as if a muscle were twitching. It is all very crazy!

Both babies look extremely healthy and are a little bigger than expected so I couldn't be happier!!
Both are about 7 inches and Twin B is 8oz and Twin A is 7oz.
Twin A was referred to as "lean and mean." He would not cooperate with the pictures, basically he wouldn't sit still for a second. And once she was trying to get a picture of both of them Mr.LeanandMean was kicking and punching his brother, and then they were both kicking at each other, and then Mr.LandM turned himself around and planted his butt right in his brother's face!!
So is this what we have in store for us :)
Honestly I can't wait... as much as I wanted a girl I think 2 boys will be an absolute blast!! Now when they break out in a fist fight in the middle of the grocery store later in life remind me that I said that :)
Some more good news from the doc yesterday... he called me an ideal incubator :) He said with my age, height, weight, and because the twins are in separate sacks I am and the bottom of the list in the high risk pregnancies. Because it is twins it is automatically considered high risk but he said I'm not even a blip on his radar... so that made me feel good :)
Oh and more interesting news he said there is no way of knowing if they are identical or fraternal at this point, once they are born we can have them DNA tested if we choose, but turns out identical twins can be in separate sacks.
AND here are the pictures...
Here is Twin A, he is the bigger and better behaved one :)
Both of the pictures are his feet she just split the screen.
And in this lovely shot Mr.Lean and Mean (right) turned himself around and but his butt right in his brother's face!! I can just picture him saying "kiss my butt"

I tried not to get to hopeful about what we were having but when we found out the sex of one all that was out the window. I should be getting a phone call from the doctor either today or tomorrow to schedule the ultra sound. We have to go to a specialty place since we are having twins. So as soon as I get that date I will let you know :)
We did have a doc apt on Monday... all went well. Nothing new... I did bombard him with a list of questions of things I was worried about from our trip... he basically laughed at me but whatever I have peace of mind, I didn't do anything to harm the babies :)

Twin B's face... so sweet!!

I have been experiencing extreme lower back pain so I went to the doctor today. I can't take any good drugs and I can't soak in a hot bath.... like for real what am I supposed to do?? It turns out that it is my sciatic nerve... the babies could be pushing on the uterus which is pushing on my nerve or something like that?. So tomorrow I am going to a chiropractor... hopefully they can relieve some of this pain!!!
Now for the change of heart.... Ray and I had decided against testing for down syndrome, after the doctor visit I called Ray to inform him that we were getting tested. Come to find out if we get tested we get an extra ultra sound!!! I cannot even tell you how excited I am! So next Wednesday (the 4th) at 3:15 we have an ultra sound!!! I thought we were going to have to wait until March.... so new pics coming soon!!!

There is really nothing else to say... just not a fun way to start a Monday!
So it was just the sweetness of the milkshake that made me that sick. My tummy gets a little sensitive to milk (that's is all I had in my belly this morning as a matter of fact), but yogurt and cheese are fine.
