Just got back from my Dr's office. At first she couldn't find the second baby when she found baby 2 we have heart rates of 176 and 186 (I honestly think she measured one baby twice, she was having such a hard time measuring with the u/s machine) but she can't get them in the same from to label Baby A and Baby B. I'm thinking I may need to change Drs because not only is she incapable of dealing my twins but she now thinks I have a bi corndinate uterus or 2 uteruses (I have had 2 previous children, if I had a problem like that before they would have found it then). I have also lost 2 lbs. 

Thinking that maybe I should change drs...

Sorry your Dr has been a let down, I hope you're able to find another who can give you the care you and your babies deserve

If your not confident in your Dr then i would highly suggest switching... pregnancy comes with so many worries the last thing you need is to wonder if your Dr even knows whats going on.  Hope you find one that you like :)

I would switch doctors. You have to feel you can trust your doctor completely and you obviously don't with this one. Go find one that can handle twins and you like.

I agree with everyone else, if you're doubting your care...SWITCH!  Better to switch sooner rather than later.

after seeing the diabetic OB today she told me I could ask if my Dr could just refer me to her care entirely (as so many of her patients are moved at 36 weeks any way). I actually like the Diabeteic Ob she admits she doesn't know everything and she offered to let me punch her in the arm after talking me into actually taking a small dose of long lasting insulin (I didn't of course, but it was a nice thought). So, I'm going to see if it would be possible to just transfer all my care to one dr.
