Yesterday I had my MFM appointment. My SCH is finally shrinking and is down to 3 CM!!!! I hope with everything this means that bleeding daily is going to be a distant memory. Both of the babies are doing great and growing.
Hopper "A" had hb of 172 bpm
Hopper " B" had hb of 170 bpm
I was concerned about their heartbeats still being so high. I keep hearing they will drop and so far the heartbeats have always been consistent in 170's- low 180's. The doctor said there was no arrhythmia and she was not concerned. I will have my level two u/s in two weeks to check on brain and heart development. This is a scary u/s for us because it will let us know for sure if there are any chromosomal issues since we decided against the invasive testing and blood work because it wasn't accurate with twins.
I also found out the genders yesterday at our visit. I asked her to take a little peek. I am not sharing the news yet because we have a gender u/s on Saturday with one of those places. Al didn't want to know and wanted to wait to find out along with his mom and dad, and my sister. So my lips are sealed, but I am so very happy!
I also discussed my 3 hour glucose test and asked about my 3 hour level being 32. At first she said there had to be some mistake with the blood work. I assured her that the way I felt, my sugar was definitely that low. During my next test she said to let them know if I started feeling bad and they would draw the last one early. She does believe that I will have more than one abnormal level this next time. Guess I will just have to wait and see.
Here are pics of the Hoppers yesterday:

I welcome any gender guesses :)
