First Doctor's Appointment

So I went to the doctor for the first time for my pregnancy, which might be surprising because I am 31 weeks along. One time more then I originally thought I would. I originally was going to have my mom, a lay midwife, be over my pregnancy and delivery but that idea got thrown out the window when I found out that I am having twins. So I decide to try going through a really experienced midwife but that fell through. I was so devastated. So my next choose was to go through this doctor named Dr. Kells. I was more hoping that I could go through a midwife nurse who works under him but they wouldn't let me because I am having twins.
I originally was going to my babies at home. Yeah, I found out I can't have them at the delivery room but will have them in the operation room. But It is not that bad as long I don't have them in a meat shop.
On a REALLY fabulous note, I found out that both my babies are head down! My last sonogram showed that the girl was head up but has changed since! So the likelihood that I will have them vaginally increase. I am hoping that I will not have to have them cesarean. So this is great news for me! I can't tell you how happy I am!


  1. I will be praying for you! And I can't wait to see the babies.

  2. I know it must have been hard for you, but the safety of the babies and of you is really the most important thing. Congratulations, Rachel.
