Baby Non-Stress Test #2
This morning, before work, I went to the hospital for my second stress test. (The picture above isn't me but it's basically what I look like during the tests). When I woke up this morning, ate breakfast and drove to the hospital baby had moved just a tiny bit. In order for the test to work the baby has to cooperate and move around. Thankfully, as soon as they strapped me up and found her heartbeat she started dancing around. Within about 15 minutes the nurse said, "She passed!" She did very well this morning. Her heartbeat was fluctuating Quite a bit (which is what they want) and she was moving all over the place. I will be going in for my tests each Monday and Thursday and my Dr's appoitnments are almost every Thursday. We'll be doing an ultrasound each appointment to check the bloodflow through the umbilical cord. We won't do growth checks every week because they'll be too close together. So far, Baby appears to be doing well just growing slowly. I'll be having this baby within 7 weeks if I make it to full term! It's getting closer.
