Teeny and Tiny are coming!

Yesterday I went in for a check up with my OB. My blood pressure came back high which I attributed to traffic and my toddler being with me. ;)
That time when your toddler asks why the doctor's office has so many pictures of "flowers." And then requests a picture with the beautiful flowers. Crying laughing over here. 
Regardless my OB sent me over to labor and delivery triage to be monitored. Turns out I have amazing blood pressure when I'm not in traffic and my four year old is home napping. However the doctor was not a fan of the contractions I was having every ten minutes. Or the fact that they discovered I was 2.5 cm dilated and 70% effaced. 

Off to labor and delivery I went for the next 24 hours. They gave me meds to stop my contractions and so far they have become less frequent but they haven't stopped. The doctor has to keep giving me meds to keep them farther apart. I'm a super picky and light sleeper so with all the monitoring and discomfort I haven't slept in 24 hours. Boo. Hoping that I can nap today. 

My last check showed I have dilated to a 3 and am about 70-80% effaced. I'll be keeping you updated as I know more. The good thing is that I have a total peace and know that the twins and I are in good hands. They are doing absolutely great and so far my contractions have been totally bearable. Please be praying for continued safety for them and strength (and sleep!) for me. Babies are head down and I'm hoping for a natural vaginal birth. Crazy ambitious with twins, I know. Ready or not here come teeny and tiny!

  2. I had my twins at 34+1 bc of pre-eclampsia. They did great! Both over 5.5 pounds at that time and spent minimal time in the nicu. Good luck mama. Keep those sweets in just a couple weeks longer
