Hello my bloggy friends!
We're still here - all 3 of us at 36w5d. Things were pretty good up until about Tuesday night after my multiple doctor appointments. I had a checkup, NST, and ultrasound. They found protein in my urine, my blood pressure was slightly elevated which is unheard of for me, and the fluid in my lower half caused the doctor to request blood work to check for pre-eclampsia. The NST was fine - no problems and I passed. The ultrasound was okay but Baby A's head is so low and she had a lot of trouble getting a measurement so it took forever and there was a ton of pressure on my belly. Both babies did gain weight from the last US two weeks ago but not as much. They have dropped to the twenty-something percentile from forty-seventh at the last scan. They are estimated at 5 lbs 10 oz and 5 lbs 13 oz and I actually lost one pound which is baffling to me.
Tuesday night was the roughest night for me so far. No matter what I did, I could not get comfortable enough to sleep and had nausea, night sweats and chills. My belly feels like this huge hard 12 lb rock. I stayed home from work yesterday and could barely eat anything. The doctor's office called early and requested I repeat the blook work today and come back in for another blood pressure check. I'm heading there shortly.
I really wanted to hold on until September. We'll see what happens!!
