Well here it is girls....
On Monday July 25th I went to the dr's office for a routine appmt. I told the Dr that there was limited movement with Ethan over the weekend and that I had not felt him move all morning. The dr finished his checkup with me and checked my belly. He pushed on my stomach and it hurt. He said since I was there he would run a NST and just do a quick check up. I went to the NST room and they hooked me up. Everything seemed ok, all except that there was still no movement. I had a BH and Ethans heart rate went from 173 to below the scale for 2 minutes. The Dr deceided to send me across the street to the hospital to L&D to be monitored better since they were so busy. I called Tom and told him and he said that he would pack a bag of goodies for Christopher and come up. I told him to wait because Christopher would be bored in the room. So off I went and when I got there they were waiting for me....(OH Boy I thought).
Got me hooked up and I called Tom to tell him I was there. After about 20 minutes of being monitored and getting blood work, Ethan d-cellerated 4 times. The Dr came in and did an U/S and found that my fluid lvl had went from 7 to 3 in less than 2 weeks. (they start to freak at 5...I was at a 3) I was told I had about 20 minutes to get my husband here because I was going into surgery. They called 2 hospitals to check to see if they would fly me and they would not! So 30 minutes later Ethan arrived into the world...3 lbs 8 oz and 16.5 inches long! And as they say, the rest is history!
