Our twin girls arrived a little early at 33 weeks and 4 days. They're getting bigger day by day since they blessed us with their arrival. This blog is to document their amazing feats since we know they'll grow up entirely too fast.

Week 32 Doctors Appointment

A few days after our visit to labor and delivery we went to see the doctor to follow up.  My blood pressure was still a little higher than the he would have liked, so he wants me to monitor it twice a day now.  Thus the purchase of a handy digital blood pressure cuff.  Yeah!  The doctor listened to the girls and checked me out.  He doesn't seem worried about my cervix any longer since we've been able to make it this far.  What he is worried about is my blood pressure and any swelling that might indicate signs of pre-eclampsia.

At this time his recomendation is that I go on home rest so that I can minimize the amount of time that I am up on my feet.  He's fine with me working from home so I have made arrangements with my firm to do so part time so that we can put off going on short term disability for a bit longer. 

I'm heading back to the doctor after one week so that they can do another sonogram of the girls (a bpp - biophysical profile).  They'll do lots of measurements on the girls and make sure they aren't under any stress.  Until then all I can do is make sure I do take it easy until then.  Everyone keep their fingers crossed for us until we verify that they aren't under any stress.  I'll get up another update after our appointment.  Hopefully we'll get some more pictures of them too. :-)
