30 weeks!!! The four of us are trucking along. It's the last week of work and a week and a few days until my C section.
Today, I have several appointments, my high risk ultra sound, bio physical profile and OB appointment.
At my high risk appointment the technican was able to see the membranes between baby A and B and baby B and C, but ironically not between C and A. I know, we're in the home stretch and a week or so until my C section. It seemed like there was a possibility of some confirmation of each baby being in their own sack. At lunch, I started day dreaming about Dr. Smith saying they'd push my delivery date to 35 weeks if they could confirm that each baby was in her own sack. Even if it gave us a few more days or a week or so, or even that they'd say the date is still the same but I wouldn't have to come every day. I was just so excited at the possibility of each baby in their own sack.
I had so many questions that started to circulate, that I thought needed answering. I was happy to be having my appointments, so I can talk to all of the doctors and get the answers and also the second and third opinions. After lunch, still floating from the small possibility, I was excited to hear after my fetal monitoring that Dr. Smith was going to take some time and look him self.
The outcome? With Baby A very low, breech and baby B laying across (transverse) the good doctor couldn't get a clear view of where the membrane would be for Baby A and C, sooooo preceding as previously scheduled. Bubble burst, even though it wasn't that big to begin with.
I was told, I'm going to get another series of steroid shots for the girls lungs at 31 weeks. We're getting close. Another thing I noticed with my body was that my contractions aren't as intense as they had been. I don't know if my uterus is getting accustomed to the weight or if I've turned a third trimester corner, but I'll take it. Maybe I've just learned how to position myself so I'm more comfortable, but the contractions certainly aren't hurting as much as they were. I'll take it!!!
