NST today, my blood pressure was elevated again. The nurse took it three times in a half hour, average being 136/89. The doctor on call wasn't too concerned so I didn't have to do any bloodwork. Just return on Friday. The babies were both reactive on the monitor and did fine.
While I was in the waiting room, there was a baby born. The babys grandmother and aunt were there and crying. Too cute..
We met with the doctor scheduled to do my March 13 csection this morning. He was nice, trying to crack jokes also very serious. He did ask me how did I draw the short straw when it came to him doing my csection. I found that funny. My blood pressure was 140/80... Ugh. And my weight is up to 36lbs gained. Bill asked him if I'll make it to 3/13 and he said pregnancy is too unpredictable to guess. I have the BPP and NST this afternoon where I'll get my blood pressure checked again.
BPP revealed low amniotic fluid surrounding the baby girl which goes along with what the doctor said last week about the placenta maybe not providing adequate nutrition. The amniotic fluid is ingested by the baby and urinated back out and the process starts again. So low fluid corresponds with low nutrient input and low urine output (from what I read online). The doctor felt it fine to see me next week so it wasn't too concerning today apparently.
NST was normal.
If I had to guess... We could meet our babies on 2/28/14. :-)
I tried some "sleepy time tea" last night hoping to not wake up while sleeping. Did it work? NO! I woke up more. :-) I had a few nights of "comfortable" sleeping this weekend and now I'm back to "torture" sleeping. The babies are sticking out my sides that I have to sleep on, it feels like lying on a brick.. Only to roll over and be lying on another brick. Oh well. It'll be over soon, I know. Then I'll be recovering from surgery. I just want to be comfortable again!
