While at the specialist I also had to start my weekly non-stress testing. I didn't do so well on this. I was already anxious about it. We sat in the waiting room for almost an hour(The longest we have ever sat in the waiting room at the specialist), I hadn't had any lunch, and I had no clue what a non-stress test entailed. The test itself isn't bad, they just hook 2 monitors to my belly and watch the baby's heart rate, and contractions. They also check my blood pressure. (I'll try and remember to have Chase take a picture of me with all the monitors at our next test) The babies heart rate was right where it needed to be, but I was having too many contractions, and my blood pressure was a little high. I was told to come home and do nothing but lay down and relax. So back on full bed rest. Thankfully I have a great husband and parents who can help me all the time.
We only have 3 more weeks before we are to our goal of 35 weeks. I'm excited I've made it this far, and that I haven't had to spend any time in the hospital yet.A funny picture Chase wanted to do. This was last Saturday April 3, 2010. I was 31 weeks pregnant.
