Just got back from L&D - autumns heart rate was in the 200's and didn't want to come down. Now I need to be monitored 4x a week until delivery. NST ever Tues and Friday and BPP ultrasounds every Monday and Thursday plus my reg. dr. appts until she is born.... They will consider inducing at 38 weeks but everything is up in the air right now.
Oh no, do they have any idea what's going on? What a journey.
they don't really know why. They've been monitoring weekly with NST due to a couple tachycardia episodes but it always came right back down. But today, it was being stubborn and didn't want to come down and she was having decreased movement. So they want to keep a very close eye on her. NST 2x a week and BPP u/s 2x a week plus my dr. appt... So guess I will be "living" at the dr. and the hospital until she is born...... On the up side, i am now 2 cm and the whole time i was there i was contracting every 8-9 min. The nurse said she didnt think i would go into full active labor tonight, but said maybe in a couple days..... We'll see, hoping it won't be long now, especially if she is going to start having issues. I would rather her be born so we can figure out what is wrong and take care of it...
Sorry to hear that Autumn has continued to have tachycardia. I totally get how you feel wanting her out to figure things out. It's nerve-wracking knowing something's wrong but not being able to see her. (((hugs))) Congrats on getting to 37wks! You are almost there! I hope this week flies by for you!
