Yep, still breech, both the little stinkers. We had the ultrasound yesterday afternoon. I feel even more disappointed than last time, even though we are only at 34 weeks and there is still time for them to change. I feel so confused. I never thought that actually being able to birth my babies would be so important to me, but it is, it really is. And I wonder why this is happening. I know there are much harder things happening all over the world to people, and that I should keep this in perspective, but I just feel glum, and there's no getting around it. I'm trying to remember that God doesn't make mistakes, and He only says "no" to His people when he has something better in mind. Please keep all three of us in your prayers: for the girls to turn and for me to be filled with peace over this. And selfish as it sounds, if you are doing this, could you drop me an e-mail or leave a comment letting me know? I could use the encouragement. Blessings!c


  1. I have been following your pregnancy posts - I am praying for you and the girls and for you to have peace. {{hugs}} I understand what you're feeling - I wanted that so much with my first child and was disappointed that I couldn't birth naturally that time. I am praying hard for the Lord to grant you this desire - anything is possible with Him!

  2. I'm praying for you.
    I've been praying all along. :)

  4. You and those girls are always in my prayers :)

  5. dear mommy,
    perhaps the Lord has a reason for those little blessings to be breech. something that will not be revealed until they arrive. c-sections, if the girls have their hearts set on one, are not bad at all. i speak from experience.
    so...........keep eating your veggies and doing all those good things and catch up on your sleep.

    by the way, we had a handsome visitor today. not dropping any names but he claims his wife is very pregnant with twin girls!

    love and prayers,

  6. hang in there... I remember feeling so nervous about the "are they head down or not" visit! I know how much you want a natural birth, but try to keep focused on the goal: two healthy babies in your arms! Since giving birth (and spending weeks and weeks of my life on childbirth prep), I've marveled at how, in the end, birth-day is one day out of your life, whereas raising those two little souls will take EVEN MORE ENERGY than natural childbirth and a whole life-time! Try to focus on all the blessings that will come after you've got them safely in your arms :)
    Prayers for you!

  7. You are, and will continue to be, in my thoughts and prayers! The bigger picture is the health of mom and the babies!

    God grant me the serenity
    to accept the things I cannot change;
    courage to change the things I can;
    and wisdom to know the difference.


  8. Just remember to be calm, cool, and relaxed, because if your stressed then the babies are. Dont worry, you'll do great. Just remember to "breath".
