Sorry it has been a few days since I posted last. I ended up admitted to the hospital for blood pressure issues.
We had our NT scan on Tuesday and the babies looked great! Both were measuring 3 days ahead and had strong heartbeats. After the scan, doctor came in and went over our downs risk. They didn't do the blood work that goes along with the scan because she said the scan itself is more accurate. A woman my age pregnant with twins has a 1/56 chance of having a baby with chromosomal issues etc. After the scan my risk was at 1/186 which is elevated of course, but still less than a 1% chance. Al and I decided we didn't want to do any further testing at this point. The only other real option we have is amino and that is way to invasive for me to take a chance with. During the appointment they took my blood pressure and it was high at 170/89 and pulse was 144. They waited about 30 minutes, gave me some water and took it again. It finally went down to 150/80 and pulse at 140. So I was put on labetol for my blood pressure. I woke up the next morning feeling really bad so they sent me to the OB urgent care at the hospital. My blood pressure was lower at 110/60 but pulse was very high again. I had EKG and CT scan. They found that part of a chamber in my heart is stopping and contracting (which happens with palpitations). It is pretty normal, but my heart is pumping very fast and they aren't sure why. It could be that is just the way mine works, but they have me on holter monitor to see what it is doing. They also added some new medications for me to take. Hopefully this was just a little bump in the road.

I promise to get catch up on the "chapters of my life" within the next few days. I am at work today for a few hours to get caught up on worked missed the last few days.
