Pomona Valley Hospital: My new home away from home.

I started this post last week and I'm just now getting back to it.

4/4/08

So today I went to the specialist to check on the babies and make sure everything is going well. I saw a different doctor today, so some of the concern could be a little over kill; however, it's better to be safe than sorry.

Here is the run down of what happened. First, the nurse who starts off taking the ultra sound kept measuring Adison's belly over and over again. Finally I said "is there a problem?," and she responded "that it's just measuring small that's all." When the doctor comes in he says the same thing and then asks if I've been leaking fluid. Well that was scary and to my knowledge the answer was no. When I hear leaking fluid that is always a bad thing. Basically he said "its not as if we need to go in an take them now, but we need to start watching more closely." Which in turn means I live at Pomona Valley Hospital.

I now go twice a week to have a non stress test. It's really not a big deal, but it stresses me out because until I go I'm worried that something is wrong. Then I go, I feel better wait three days worry all over again. They are testing for heart rates, movement, contractions. Then the do an ultra sound to check the fluids to make sure they are not to low.

ON the up side Adison is 3 lbs 13 oz. with a head measuring oh so big. Both my children will have large heads and will be very disproportionate if they don't start gaining weight in other areas. Carson/Hayden weighs in at 4 lbs. 5 oz and his head is only measuring in the 92 %tile meaning only eight other babies his exact age in the womb have a bigger head. The doctor assured me that it doesn't appear as if there is anything wrong, but he does agree that his head is very large.

Hey Jenn, I was only there for an hour today! Including my wait time! I love it when the baby moves around a lot so I don't have to been there for very long. The test are going fine, Juanita always says everything is great and normal with the results. I wish that meant that I didn't need to do them anymore!

How is the little girl's fluids this week?
