Appointment today
« on: May 06, 2011 at 04:55 PM »
I went for my (now weekly) fetal biophysical profiles, NST and measurements today (didn't see the doctor today). They scored well, are measuring around 33-35+ weeks instead of the 31 weeks I am. Weights were 4lbs & 4lbs 7 oz! Holy cow!!!!  :o At this rate I'm going to birth two 7lb-ers if I go to term! My cervix was 3cm today!!! YEA!  :D It was down to 1cm last Friday. I'm very encouraged by that! I was having contractions on the monitor, but they weren't painful so I'm waiting for a change in that direction before I worry too much about them. I feel very encouraged after today. Next week I have to start having NSTs and FBP weekly, along with a physician appointment. That's going to be interesting. It will have me driving between two hospitals and spending about 3-4hrs between the two, all in one day.  I am BEAT after today! It took them 2.5hrs to do the ultrasounds, measurements and monitoring & I didn't even see the doc!  :-\
Due date: 7/7/2011
Twins (we're not finding out the sexes!)
5th pregnancy (5yrs old-put on bedrest with her @ 35wks for PIH)
3 previous losses
Put on bedrest this pregnancy @ 17weeks for Cervical shortening & preterm labor
Thanking God for each day I'm given with my twins!

Congrats on a great appointment mckoygirl!  3cm is awesome! 

I know what you mean about being exhausted - I have 2 nst's a week, an ultrasound, and 2 ob/midwives a week - usually in 2 appointments... and on those days, I sleep so hard.  They keep us busy for ladies on bedrest!

Thanks Laura-  :) You know, it's therapeutic for me to feel like I'm helping as many pregnant mommas as I can.... so in truth, you all are helping me! It gives me some sense of purpose. I miss my pregnant patients!
