Well after a lovely day at work where my coworkers surprised me with a beautiful baby shower I went to my 30 week appt afterwards and am now in the hospital on bedrest. I was admitted to labor and delivery this afternoon around 6pm and have been closely monitored since. At my appt earlier everything looked good - the heartbeats were both 150 BPM, good blood pressure and my cervix was still strong and long. What concerned the doctors is that Baby A gained 1 full pound in 2 weeks and Baby B gained only a few ounces. When the tech looked at the cords the bigger baby at 3.9 lbs was looking perfect and was getting lots of blood and food. The smaller baby at only 2.6 lbs had something blocking in the cord and wasnt getting much food and blood. The ordered me to be on immediate full time bed rest and I am now done with work (doctors orders) atleast until the babies come. So they are pumping me full of steroids to strengthen their lungs because more than likely these babies are coming a lot quicker than anticipated. If the small baby continues to not grow at a normal rate then they have no choice but to take them via ceserian and will be able to help her eat and grow like she is suppose to. I am so very scared and nervous for my babies. I hope and pray that everything turns out okay and our babies and myself are safe in God's arms. Sorry to cut this short but I have to go. The nurse is going to get me set up with an IV. I will keep you ladies updated.
