Non stress test

Hello. 33 weeks! I have had 3 non stress tests so far and the first two have been great! The boys were so cooperative and we were only there for like a half hour. Today on the other hand... Baby A and B have completely shifted. Baby A was transverse right and B was transverse left. Last night I was up in the middle of the night for like an hour and half feeling braxton hicks contractions. Now Baby A in presenting head down and Baby B is breech on my left side. I was feeling them move around a lot last night but this morning I didn't. When we got to the doctor they were doing their practice breathing and B even had the hiccups but they were not cooperating with the movements that the doctors need to see. On the ultrasound we are supposed to see 3 body movements and a muscle movement (which is the hand opening/closing, etc...) After they weren't getting the movements on the ultrasound she decided to put them on the heart monitors and they wouldn't stay on! So, I drank some apple juice and moved around and got back on the ultrasound. A finally cooperated!! So, we were just waiting on Baby B to move around. After 2 hours he didn't!!! I was getting really uncomfy and worried. So, I was hooked back up to the monitors and they finally stayed on. They needed their heartbeats to go up and down and stay acclerated for 15 seconds. They still didn't realllly do that but they were strong heartbeats. So, instead of admitting me they just told me to go home and keep an eye on their movements and I have to go back again tomorrow for more testing. Since I've been home I've been feeling some kicks and punches- just not as much as usual. I chalk it up to the fact that there is soooo little room left in there for the little guys! I will keep everyone updated again tomorrow.
