we don't get anything like this monitoring as standard in the uk. i was offered steroids about 10 or 15 minutes before the births i knew it was imminent, so declined. maybe next time they'd give me the shot earlier, but who knows!!
And yes, it is kinda funny cause the OB and the nurse keep telling me how they can't believe how good I'm doing (other than the terrible discomfort lol). But as far as my good blood pressure and my cervix still so long and the weight of the babies being so good. They are like..."well, some people are just really good at growing babies, I guess that's why you are getting two cause you are growing them really well, no problem". As hard as it is sometimes, I have a feeling I'm going to "miss" being pregnant. I did with my daughter. So I guess I just better enjoy what I can (even though I'm getting beat up in my belly constantly!)
