I'm so so thankful to have past 34 weeks. Not just because it means after more than 8 weeks of bed rest I get to leave the house once or twice this week.... Okay that's a lot of the reason why.
I went to the OB today and we did a BPP. Twin B past it very quickly. Twin A was taking a nap so we had to spend some time waking him up. All good.
Then we did a NST. It's hard keeping both twins on the monitor. Well it's hard keeping B on the monitor. A just hung out doing his thing. When my OB checked the paper it looked like twin B had some "variants". Basically there were a few moments when B's heart rate went down and then back up. So she had me go straight to my MFM to do another, higher quality u/s and make sure B was okay.
So we went to doctor number two. First the u/s. Everything looked great. Fluid, cord flow, movement. All good. Weights estimated at Twin A 5lbs 6oz. Twin B 5lbs 8oz.
Then the NST. This time Twin B stayed put and A was the trouble maker. But good news was no "variants". The MFM said Twin B could have just been kicking/tugging on his umbilical cord causing the original "variants"
I go back to my OB on Friday. Hopefully for a much shorter visit.
Today we left the house at 9:30am and got home around 4pm. Not the first time these boys cause of trouble, I'm sure.
Oh and no more cervical checks. I guess I'll know things have changed down there when I feel my water break or I go in to labor. Holy Cow.
