Hi ladies, sorry I haven't been on JM a ton lately...
I have been a revolving door at L&D...4 times now in the past 2 weeks...I think? I was in L&D on Monday night and again on Tuesday this week. Monday night the residents couldn't find a reason for my severe cramping and they couldn't find the membrane or fluid pockets, BUT they sent me home to see my OB the next morning...total idiots! I saw the clinic doc at 10am at my NST on Tuesday and she found no fluid for baby A and 1.58 fluid for Baby B...she sent me back to L&D where they had a tough time and after 2 hours finally did finally find a pocket of fluid 2cm for each twin (borderline, but safe). I was soooooo relieved! They considered inducing that day, but decided to send me home and schedule induction for next week. So I went home! I'm still 4-4.5cm dilated and about 60% effaced. I am shocked to have made it this far after all my PTL scares! Excited as the girls look fabulous!!!! Baby B is BREECH again, but I plan to attempt vaginal breech extraction if she won't flip again...?!
They are closely monitoring fluid levels and the plan is for an induction on Monday 9th as I will be 38/39 weeks and they feel it is time for twins to come due to fetal & placental issues after that. If fluids change on Friday appointment or if I go into labor naturally, obviously the plan will change. thank you for the t&p!!!
Can't remember if I updated this, but Friday 6/29...growth scan, Baby A measured 6lb 2oz & Baby B 5lb 15oz. Baby B was a hard measurement due to her resumed Breech positioning. I am feeling good and confident at their sizes almost a week ago!!! I know the u/s sizes can be off up to 1lb either way for twins...but I'm excited!!! Monday 9th at the latest we shall know & finally meet them!!!
I'm sorry you have been back and forth to L&D, but ahhhhhhh I'm so excited for you and glad everything is going so well even with the issues you have had! The end is near and I cannot wait to see pictures of your little ladies!!!!!
