Some Potentially Bad News


This is what I do one day a week - a Non Stress Test. I lay down with three monitors attached to me. Two of them measure the babies' heartbeats, the pink one measures for contractions. And then I get a button to push each time I feel a baby move. Do you know how often I push that button!?!

I started getting NSTs at 31 weeks just because I'm having twins and they're considered high risk automatically. That one turned out really good. the last two have determined that I'm having contractions. But I don't feel them and I'm not dialating at all (thank God!) so instead they're considering my uterus "irritable."

I had another ultrasound last Friday and the findings are that baby A weights 3.13lb, and Baby B is 4.6lb. That's quite a difference for twins so the doctor is sending me to a Maternal Fetal Medicine Specialist who will determine if they agree with the findings, on Monday. If they do - I will go on bedrest in the hopes that I will carry them to 35 or 36 weeks and then I will be induced. Last week, they were hoping I would carry to 36 or 37 weeks but I guess that's too much to hope for now. Looks like I may have my babies before the new year - I just hope they're healthy and don't have to stay in the NICU at all!
