Love



Being a mother has by far been the best thing that has ever happened to me. I am so very lucky to have these two precious little girls in my life. I want to give them everything that I wasn't able to have growing up and so much more. I honestly couldn't be any happier. Our journey was long and at times very painful but the end results were totally worth the wait. I didn't know that love like this existed!

So I went to my appointment today knowing that we would figure out the day that I would have my c-section. The ultrasound went well but the one babies amniotic fluid was very low. So low that the biggest pocket that she could find was only 2x2. I havent felt her much lately and she said it was because she has no place to go and cant move around freely because of the low fluid. Also, her cord is still showing resistance and seems to be worse than it was last time. I knew that this meant they would take my twins soon.

Just an update: At my last u/s 2 weeks ago the babies were measuring Baby A 2.6 lbs and Baby B 3.9 lbs.  At todays appt they measured Baby A 2.12 lbs and Baby B 4.14 lbs. The doctor is concerned because still the little one is getting further behind. This made her come to the conclusion that I will have my c-section THIS SUNDAY!! It's crazy because it's only 3 days away. The doc is thinking that we are the point where the little one will be healthier on the outside than inside my belly. It s&%$ to think that I will be discharged and will have to leave my little ones there in the NICU next week but I know it will be for the best. I was given a steroid shot today and will also get one tomorrow to try and strengthen their lungs before delivery. I hope and pray that all goes well!!!

Doctor



After being discharged from the hospital earlier this month I have now been on modified bed rest for over 2 weeks. Some days I am going crazy from boredom and others I am so very grateful to be relaxing finally. While I was in the hospital I was advised that I had barely passed my 1 hour glucose test but for some reason was never told prior to that. A doctor in the office that I go to (that I have never even met) had requested me to come back and take the 3 hour glucose test. I spoke with my OB that I see every week and she agreed that it was too late in the game to worry about this and said that I didnt have to take it. Wooo hooo! Although I am having twins and the chance of having gestational diabetes is greater, she thought it was unnecessary because I was so close to delivery and I am young and thin (so my chances of having GD is low). I love my High Risk OB :)

Thursday we get to take measurements of the babies and see how much they have gained in the last 2 weeks. I cant wiat! We also get to find out our c-section date. I'm so excited and anxious to find out when I will get to meet my little girls. I still cant believe im having two!! I feel very blessed and couldnt be more grateful.

Thankfully everything has looked good on the last few ultrasounds and the doctors were able to discharge me from the hospital Sunday night. I am on Modified bed rest at home and couldn't be happier that things are looking better. The babies havent grown much in the last week but they think it was just too soon to retest measurements. The small babies cord seemed to look more clear and wasn't as blocked as it was last week. They have decided to keep the babies in until 34-36 weeks if possible. I am so very relieved that all is improving as I was a nervous wreck thinking I was going to lose one or both of my babies. I know that God has his hands on each of us and I am leaving this up to him. I can't wait to meet my little girls!!
