    FrenchBulldogMom responded:
    Mary and the twins

    WG: 30 lbs ( I gained 11 lbs in 9 days due to swelling )

    Symptoms/News: I've been having blood pressure issues. My doctor has hospitalized me twice, once for a few hours to run tests and the second time overnight. At my next appt, if my blood pressure is still up, they'll admit me to the hospital for the duration of the pregnancy. I really don't want this, but I guess I have to do what's best for the babies.

    Next appointments: Tues, 6/5 at regular OB and Friday 6/8 at the high-risk OB

    * I really hope to make it past Friday to have the twins because my husband is out of town all week for work. If he has to come home early, then he has to re-schedule the manager training course and he won't get his raise in pay yet. I know I shouldn't worry about things like this, but I just want him to get this class out of the way so we can focus on the babies.
    BabyParks replied to FrenchBulldogMom's response:
    I will be praying for you girl! I hope things are ok and you don't have to get hospitalized. I will keep you in my thoughts. Try to rest as much as possible.
    BabyParks responded:
    Hello all!! I will be 33 weeks tuesday and am now doing appointments bi-weekly. I have an appointment June 11th and June 27th for an ultrasound to check size and dates again. We want to make sure he is growing on track and not an IUGR baby like parker was. All seems to be good there. I am having contractions and had to go to L&D last night and they ended up being 4 min apart lasting 1 min and they gave me terbutaline to stop them. Had to have 2 shots of it to get them to stop so I am praying he will wait a few more weeks before he comes. She said they probably were real contractions and not braxton hicks because they were so regular. They weren't strong tho thankfully and I did not dilate. I am calling my OB tomorrow to see what she wants to do and if she wants me to come in sooner. Hope everyone is doing well. Sorry i haven't posted lately we have had lots of stuff going on lately with my son and it's been hard to get time on here anymore. I will try to do better as I always remember you guys in my prayers. Take care. Courtney
    nicram8683 responded:
    Yay for labor watch! I am so ready to meet my little man and have him home with us. I am very confident that my Dr. will remove the order for modified bed rest tomorrow since I am past 37 weeks. Then I think I will start walking around every chance I get to start things moving, if they aren't already. Having times of uncomfortableness, and some pain every so often, but nothing consistent.
