I went into the hospital today for my routine NST, and the nurse, "didn't like my BP". It was high for me, but not outrageous. I did all my usual tests, confirmed the boys are pactice breathing and checked fluid and baby position. Both boys are now footling breech. They took my BP again and it had not gone down. Then they did the NST and I drank lots of water, and 30 minutes later it was still high. So I got blood drawn and they just called to tell me my Kidneys aren't looking so hot. (sigh) What next? I feel fine, but I have to do a 24 hour urine on Sunday and go back for another NST on Monday. I suppose I should feel lucky they didn't keep me. However, if I haven't improved by Monday I am facing the dreaded c/s. There is little hope the boys will turn based on their size and position, and I may be out of time. The good news is they are large for 36 week twins and they are showing that they are ready to breathe on their own. And at least I have the satisfaction of knowing I'm not being forced into the c/s just because I successfully reached 36 weeks. I really feel like I could go 2 more weeks, but I am already doing everything on the pre-e prevention checklist so I will just do more of it and hope I get a little more time.
