Total weight gain/loss: +35lbs as of this morning..
Maternity clothes? Yes, sadly I am running out of shirts that fit the belly.
Stretch marks? Oh yes, they've been there for years.
Sleep: When I do sleep it's okay. Waking up with back/hip/leg pain most nights which isn't fun. I have been waking up between 3-4AM the past few days and not able to fall back asleep. I don't enjoy it.
Best moment this week: Making it another week! Good appointment today. The weather is beautiful this week!
Movement: Yes they are having a party in there!
Food cravings: sweets
Gender: TWO BOYS!!!!! Kaden & Logan
Labor Signs: Contractions off and on. Nothing regular thankfully.
Belly Button in or out? still in, but completely flat.
What I miss: Feeling like a human being!
What I am looking forward to: Growth ultrasound next week. Getting past 34 weeks. I am ready to be done. 8 more weeks!
Milestone: I made it past 28 weeks! That is the first milestone for twins! Next up is 32 weeks, and then once I get past 34 weeks if I were to go into labor I can deliver at the hospital in town. It better not happen before then or I have to head to Seattle!
|29 weeks measuring 37 weeks|
I started getting worried at that point. My husband met me at L&D and they were very quick to get things going. They thought I had a DVT or PE which was very scary. I had an EKG, chest xray, doppler study of both legs, and tons of lab work. They hooked me up to the NST and wouldn't you know it I was also contracting like crazy. The doctor checked me and I was soft but still closed. He did a fetal fibronectin test which checks to see if you might go into labor in the next 2 weeks and that was negative as well. I spent 7 hours in triage and had 2 OB's and an internist overseeing my care. They finally decided to admit me overnight for observation. I had another spell of the SOB, rapid heart rate and crummy feeling, but then nothing else. What they did find is that I have a very low platelet count. At my OB appointment today, the doctor decided to send me to a hematologist to make sure there isn't an underlying cause. Let's hope not! Tomorrow is my first day back at work since that day and I'm a little nervous. It's not comfortable to sit for a long period or stand, but I'll just have to make do. I am only working 2.5 days a week from here on out unless they decide to stop it all together again.
On another note, my wonderful friends threw me a baby shower this past weekend and it was wonderful! We got a ton of stuff (mainly clothes, blankets, burp rags, and a huge gift card to costco!). I am washing all of the newborn clothes, hats, and blankets today :) Only 8 more weeks to go!!
