Last Friday's Monitoring

It was time for monitoring at the hospital again last Friday. According to the doctor, everything looked great concerning the heartrates of the babies. The only thing that concerned the doctor was the contractions. They were really strong. Based on all the contraction monitoring they have been doing, these were about four times stronger than any other contractions they had detected. After the monitoring, the doctor performed a cervix check and there were minimal changes - only 20% effaced. It seems like I'm having all the fun of contractions without any of the normal results.

In addition to the contractions, I've been dealing with round ligament pain and what seems to be the weight of the babies as they start to move further down. They are putting a lot of pressure on my lower abdomen. Because of all these symptoms, I go back to the doctor today. This will be in addition to the twice-a-week monitoring at the hospital.
