Today I had my labs drawn because my blood pressure has been so high. One of the test came back abnormal so Dr. Kovanda wants to do another test and give me a medication called betamethasone. It is a steroid shot that will help the babies lungs in case I have to deliver them early. I had the same thing with Riley but it was because I was in preterm labor. The test she is doing is called 24 urine. It will check the protein levels. I have to collect all my pee for 24 hours and then turn it it. The steroid shot is one right away and then another one 24 hours later.
Today I had a NST. It is where they hook me to monitors and monitor the babies heart rates. While I was having this test done they noticed my blood pressure was high and I was also having some contractions. Because of this the Doctor has told me it is time to be done with work. I have made it to 33 weeks working and that is pretty dang good with twins. My goal was 28 weeks and I passed that by 5 weeks. Most twins get put on bed rest or taken off work at 24-28 weeks. Everyone at work is impressed and surprised how well I have done. I am very proud of myself and happy at how this pregnancy is going.
