38 week update -some drama included

The appointment started off fine, as usual. BP was fine, weight gain 20lbs total. And, of course, no dilation at all. Zip. Nada. Nothing. Then she checked the heartbeat and it was only 110-115. She decided to send me to the hospital for monitoring just to be safe. She was going over too, to deliver some one else's baby, so she said she'd meet me there. That was an unexpected development to be sure!

Well, I had J* with me since my appointment was so late in the afternoon. Hubby was working, so I called FIL to meet me at the hospital to help with J*. I think I scared him a little but he was great, and came in 5 minutes after me. They hooked me up to the monitors for an NST, and said it would only be about a 20 minute test. WoW, that was a long 20 minutes, LOL. The heartache looked like it was all over the place, sometimes below 100, and sometimes above 165. It was nerve wracking, but it all turned out fine. My doc said the baby was doing super, and was in no distress at all. My level 2 ultrasound to check growth is scheduled for Thursday at 4pm. I'll update more then. I'm gonna go crash now!

I am sorry for the scare! How frightening!

I am glad he is doing well though even if he did scare you!

How scary, I'm glad to hear Doo Doo is doing great though. I was hoping you'd go in for an NST and end up staying and delivering like me. Fingers crossed that it won't be long.
