Doctor Appointment

I went to the doc today for a quick appointment so that I could get my cervix checked.  Between my last 2 appointments my cervix had shortened by 1 cm which was a little concerning.  But, all is well and the babies are looking good.  There was a Physician's Assistant student with the doc today who listened to the heartbeats with the doppler and measured my belly.  She was able to hear the HBs right away and they were both in the 150s.  My belly measured that of a 30 week singleton pregnancy and I am only almost 24 weeks!  Crazy stuff. 

Anyways, I go back in 2 weeks just before going back to Minnesota for a growth ultrasound, meeting with the doc, and the Glucose Tolerance Test (GTT).  That one should be fun.  The doc gave me some super sugary stuff to drink approx. 45 min before my appointment and then they draw my blood at the 1 hour mark.  This just tests to see if I have gestational diabetes because if so, that's just no good for the babies.  I was so happy that I got to see them today! They look so big and are very active.  The doc said that Baby B was kicking me at the time he was looking at her..... but I can't seem to feel it at all.
