When did you deliver?
35.5 weeks, after 8 weeks on bedrest, 6 of that in the hospital.
Vaginal, section or both?
Vaginal! (yes, I am fucking proud after thinking it would definately be c-section and was actually given the choice. I chose to try the vaginal and I prayed a lot that I had made the right decision.
Ava was downward the entire time. Gia was transverse, feet dangling(she was the main concern and would have been the reason for the section had I have opted for it.
OB and his OB wife did external inversion with vaccum extraction.
What were the birth weights?
Ava was 4 lbs. 9 oz. Gia was 4 lbs 11 oz. Both were over 17 inches.
Did they spend any time in NICU?
Yes, one week exactly.
What’s their relative (to each other) size now?
Both are tiny petite little things.
Ava is a smidge over 21 pounds. Gia is back up to about 19. They are 26 months. They look like most 12 month olds.
Do they look or act similar?
No and no. Ava is blonde hair with green eyes. Gia is dark hair with brown eyes.
