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.

I am over 30 weeks and I am still working and feeling pretty good. I get tired and sore but my weekly massages are very helpful. I saw Dr. Kovanda today. She says everything is looking great. I have only gained 21 pounds and my blood sugars are great with my diet. My Fundal height is measuring 36. WOW that is crazy. I can't believe how big I am getting. Dr. Kovanda as well as myself are very proud at how well I am doing with this pregnancy. I am excited for my ultrasound in 2 weeks, Wonder how big these boys are getting. They move all the time and I swear sometime it feels like they are having a boxing match going on in there. Everyone now is asking me when I am due or say things like " you must be ready to pop any day now". If I could get paid for every comment like this that I hear daily I would be RICH. I just tell them there is 2 in that belly and then they understand and ask a million questions. Oh well I still LOVE being pregnant so I don't mind too much.
