Here is what led up to heading to the hospital.....
Friday at 11am I had an ultrasound and doctor appt. Per the ultrasound, baby girl is only at 10% of her expected weight (she was 25% last u/s). Baby boy was holding on at 40% of expected weight, last time he was at 50%. My blood pressure was elevated in the office and I had yet to pass the kidney stone. Darvocet was not helping for the pain, either. Luckily, Chad was at that appt with me and we headed right to the hospital from the appt.
My blood pressure behaved once I was settled in, and actually was lower that it's been in a LONG time during later checks. Heartbeats on both babies is good (well high when baby boy is kicking baby girl, quite the funny thing to hear on fetal monitor). I received a liter bolus of IV fluids, with a continuous running IV. I have not yet passed the stone, but have not received any pain medication since 10pm Friday night. So, hopefully the stone is in my bladder, ready to make it's appearance.
I also received two doses of steriods, so if babies were to arrive early, as we expect, their lungs will have a boost in development.
I see the doctor again on Friday. Per bedrest order, I can be up nce an hour for ten minutes, shower daily, use the stairs minimally and drive to my appts...wish me luck! I made a shopping list of store and pantry/fridge food that Chad has brought up to the master area so I'm should be set for food while he's at work. Luckily, we have a mini fridge set up in our master suite area, so will be able to keep cold foods handy.
I'm going to download some digital scrapbooking software that I've had for awhile. I figure now is as good of time as any to dive into the digital arena of scrapbooking......
Please, if you have prayers, thoughts, fat wishes to spare, send them on to the babies.
