How far along are you? I was so done with being pregnant after 3 weeks of bedrest last time. It's no fun feeling like a ticking time bomb. Hoping everything goes well and baby arrives safely! Take care!

It sounds like you were checked out really well, but what a pain!

I can totally understand the wanting your little one in for as long as possible, but also being done with the whole pregnancy/worrying thing.

Take care and rest up.

My visit to triage

Postby southerngirl108 » Mon Sep 19, 638631 9:08 am

Today I had my weekly checkup and had an NST. Noah kept falling asleep so they had to use this little contraption that gave a vibration-like buzz to wake him up. After being on the machine for 50 minutes my doctor finally felt comfortable enough letting me off of it. Problem is even though I was laying down for all that time, my BP was 132/115 (taken twice by two different nurses in both arms) so he sent me to triage. Luckily I was only there for about an hour and a half because laying on my side my BP was 108/70 or lower! My BW and urine came back fine so my on-call doctor said she didn't have a good reason to keep me in the hospital, just ordered me on bedrest (which I've been on for 3 weeks now) but basically staying on my side (not so easy to do with an almost 2 year old!). I do have to another 24 hr urine (fun!) but she told me to wait and do it on Monday so I can bring it with me to my appt next Tuesday.

I was upset in the doctor's office because this is almost day for day in my last pregnancy when I ended up being admitted and delivering. I'm hoping to get Noah as much time as possible but I'm also ready to get him out! (Does that make sense?)
