Most of today went smoothly…
I had a biophysical profile done for the babies today, they looked great. Baby A’s sac has sealed up a bit and the fluid has started to collect again. The tech said that if I didn’t tell him that I had ruptured, he wouldn’t know it. The fluid is in within normal limits. This is amazing because on Saturday, there was hardly any fluid around baby A. Miracle I tell ya, miracle. Both babies were doing really good practice breathing and bouncing around as they should. Also, both babies are measuring a little over 2lbs. each. Grow babies, grow!
But, you know with a bunch of good stuff, bad has to come too… My blood pressure has started to make a climb today. This bought me a 24 hour urine and blood work to check for pre-e. The worst part is that for the urine collection I had to get a foley catheter. I could of really done without that. It is something I’d never like to experience again. It was just….. yeah, no fun. Getting up to pee was the one of the highlights of my day! It only has to stay in for 24 hours, so I guess I should enjoy not getting up tonight to go to the bathroom.
Last night I began having some contractions that were pretty painful. At one point they were 7 minutes apart but then they started to space themselves out. So, no magnesium for me! whoohoo! I’m still having the contractions proballly about 2-3 a hour, sometimes a bit longer in between. It seems like I get them more at night when I am laying down or changing my position. I hope that tonight I am mostly contraction free and I’m able to get some rest. It certainly isn’t easy getting sleep at night in a hospital with people coming in to check my blood pressure, take my temp and check up on the babies.
Today, I’m so very grateful that I’m still pregnant and these babies are doing great and growing like weeds inside.
