Sorry for the delay. Truth is I've been waiting to see to hear from the clinic too. Per instructions on Friday, we were running on the no news is good news philosophy with me being seen on Thursday for a bi-monthly check if there are no more bleeding episodes.
Quick run down of Friday. We arrived at our clinic around noon, just in time to see my MFM heading off to a meeting. See told us that the lab slip was waiting for us at the front desk and that they would contact us if they wanted me to come in over the weekend or change my medication regiment. When I mentioned that He-Beat didn't seem to be moving as much, she told us to tell the receptionist so that they could take a peek. The receptionist immediately contacted the triage nurse and within 5 minutes we were whisked backed to the ultrasound area for a fetal non-stress test (NST).
Usually the clinic doesn't begin this type of monitoring until after 28 weeks, especially with twins. But the nurse was feeling lucky and decided that we would give it a go. As she hooked me up to the monitor, she explained the purpose for each of the dopplers (one for He-beat, one for She-beat and one for my uterus to monitor contractions) and then proceeded to get some vitals on me. Warning us that locating the Beats could take some time, the nurse was really satisfied when she easily located both of them and was able to finish setting up within a few minutes.
The jist of all of this is that both Beats are doing well, but we learned I have difficulty feeling He-beat unless he's low. That and She-Beat has earned the nickname "Busy B."
After that Grey and I made our way to the lab for bloodwork. I'm still unclear exactly what they were checking, so I'll update when I learn the particulars.
In the meantime, I'm taking it easy and focusing on other things. We'll see if Thursday results in any interesting news regarding the Lovenox. Until then, no news is good news.
