So we had an appointment with the OB today to follow up from the peri appointment yesterday. Turns out my OB was called in for an emergency C section, so he wasn't around to see me, so I saw his PA instead. The girls continue to look great on the ultrasound! They are both measuring pretty darn close now on this ultrasound machine as well, and I'm guessing that's because baby Brianna has flipped head down and it's harder to get accurate measurements on her. Their weights at the OB today were:
Baby A - AKA Olivia - 4 lbs 15 oz
Baby B - AKA Brianna - 4 lbs 12 oz
Either way the PA wasn't concerned about the girls at all and said they were doing great! Baby Olivia actually has her cord wrapped around her neck once, but the PA wasn't concerned at this point and says it's pretty common. Hopefully it doesn't stay that way though. . .I can imagine that could become problematic during delivery!
So, the babies are doing well. YAY. Momma though. . .well. . .I'm having a LOT of swelling - my feet, ankles, and legs - all huge and full of fluid. And I can't get it to go down. I have gained a ton of weight in the last month - nearly 25 lbs - and my blood pressure has gone up some too, so now they are concerned about preeclampsia. They are having me do some additional blood work in the morning and are having me do a 24 hour urine (yuck)! I go back to see them Thursday afternoon for a recheck and to discuss the results of the blood work and 24 hour urine test, and then I am scheduled to come in again on Tuesday or Wednesday of next week. They are keeping a very close eye on me at this point.
So, we are keeping on a trucking here! 34 weeks 1 day, and overall doing pretty darn well! Hope you are doing well too!!!
