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!!!
