    Hi Tam, glad things are going well. What is the steriod injection for? Hope you are going okay in the hot weather.

    Today I had my latest check up at the hospital and again saw Dr Matthews. The more we see him the less weird he seems. Trent has actually started calling him House (as in the TV show) as he is just as blunt as what he is. It is good but you get taken aback at first.

    My blood pressure is still normal 120/70 with my fundal height (uterus size) now measuring at 38cm. Both babies heartbeats are doing well but how fast I don't know as he doesn't record them (not necessary in his mind).

    He then went over my notes from the ultrasound I had on Oct 26th and explained a few things to us. I mentioned in my last update about one of the cords showing resistance, when in my notes it says that both are. This means that the circulation from the placenta to the baby is not doing as well as they would like. Also with one twin measuring smaller (by about 30-40%) there are a few concerns there. Due to both of these concerns I am having another ultrasound this Friday and then I am having another appointment next Monday to go over the notes. From now on I will only be seeing Dr Matthews (he is the head obstetrician) due to the concerns he now has.

    Also he said that twin 1 now feels like it is back in the breech postion (both were head down last ultrasound) but this is something else that will be checked at the ultrasound. If twin 1 is breech and doesn't move it means I will have to have a c-section. This doesn't bother me as long as they are both healthy I don't mind how they arrive.

    I will update you all again on Monday after the ultrasound and check-up.

    Another belly photo will also be added at some stage this week.
