Elizabeth reports that during the past several days she has been experiencing low back pain, difficulty breathing, and the sensation that her abdomen has “expanded.” She complains of fatigue and difficulty finding a position of comfort while resting. Elizabeth states that the twins are active. Elizabeth’s fundal height measures 36 centimeters. The fetal heart rates are as follows: Twin A = 140 bpm; Twin B = 134 bpm.

Elizabeth’s laboratory data from 1 week ago reveal the following findings: 

Hemoglobin: 9.2 g/dL. 

Serum ferritin level: 10 mg /dL. 

1-hour glucose challenge test: 130 mg/dL.

A sonogram performed during this visit shows a closed cervix, normal fetal growth, and excessive amniotic fluid.
