oiy it was a bit of a nail biter for me. DH says he was cool as a cucumber, but I could see he was worried too.

We talked about the continuous monitoring, she won't back me up on going with intermittent because "of the risk of rupture"... sigh... less than 1% chance is a risk I am willing to chance.

anyway.

So she pulled out the doppler, nothing, looked and looked and looked, nothing. So we wait for the u/s machine to boot up - I was the last appt and I guess they figured they wouldn't need it. So we wait and wait and wait.

Then she starts hunting around, Mike say "it just kicked the crap of you" I finally breathe. A few more seconds and she finds the heart beat.

HR 150.
bp was actually good - 124/80 better than I have ever had pregnant or not.
I lost another 5 pounds, so I think it is 17 pounds total. totally not unusual for me. I lost over 30 pounds with Adam and over 20 with Nate.

no pictures, and I really couldn't see the screen, but I think the quality was pretty awful too, it didn't look like a baby from my perspective LOL

I had a good friend who went for an appointment when she was about 15 weeks and the Dr couldn't find the hb with the doppler and got her all worried and did an u/s and found the baby was fine. Come to find out the battery in his doppler had died

Glad to hear the baby is doing well. Sorry about the monitoring. I know it's a pain but at least you have someone is at least supportive of a vbac.

So happy the appt was a good one despite the initial scary-ness.
As for when the time comes in labor....just don't announce your intent to take the monitors off, but convienently need to make a lot of bathroom trips or simple take them off your self and start walking. If they stop you, just TELL them you are going for a short walk and will happily return to the monitors when you are done so you can check on baby. If you are assertive and don't "ask permission" they are more likely to back down a bit....
