One more week until the next milestone-the 32 week mark.
Had my check up with the OB today. She's pretty happy with where we are now after yesterday's scan. Blood pressure still normal at 118/66 (or something like that), and I'm now measuring at 39 weeks! Yikes. I'm huge. She said that my goal should be to keep things as is for 4 more weeks. If I make it to 35 weeks, they might take me off of bed rest and the pro.cardia. Because twins actually develop maturity a bit faster than singletons, a 35-weeker twin is generally about as developed as a 37-weeker singleton. The doctor also said she's had many patients who contract consistently for weeks and weeks who end up having to be induced.
I tried to convince the OB to let me keep my scheduled ultrasound appointment for Monday, but she was having none of it. Between the subjectivity of ultrasound technology and all recent scans being done by the peri, she thought it could cause more harm than good because of misinformation. So I'm stuck waiting for 2 weeks until we can see Apple and Banana again. Boo!!!
I guess I'll live.
