Today was our follow up ultrasound, and things are looking good- even a little better than last week. Sunshine’s fluid levels are measuring between 3 and 4 and Daisy’s are somewhere around 8, maybe a little lower.
They also spent some extra time showing us the umbilical doppler, which shows the bloodflow direction into each baby. It’s not a great`thing when they see a reverse flow… and they didn’t see it.
I guess it’s gonna be fingers crossed every week for the next 10-15 weeks until these beautiful little girls get here!!
… also, I had another lightheaded episode while on the table getting the US. She had to stop and I sat up and drank half a bottle of water to stop myself from feeling like I had to faint. The doctor said it’s likely normal, based on the weight of 2 babies and perhaps if I have low blood pressure. She said to eat potato chips or high sodium foods to keep the blood flowing, and not puddling in my legs. I hope it’s that simple….
Now it’s time to go watch Project Runway!!! Make it work!
