Had my 34 week OB appt along with my weekly NST today.
Had my NST first. Of course Samantha was sleeping, after stimulation with the buzzer she woke up and moved about 4 times then back to sleep she went. After an hour on the NST it was borderline reactive. But I had to have a BPP (bio physical profile US) because there were 2 or 3 decels in her heartrate. It was in the 130s and dipped down to 100-105 in the decels except one dipped below 100.
BPP- Amniotic Fluid was 13.8cm, right in the normal range; Sam got a score of 8/8 It took about 20 minutes but she was able to get her to wake up and move so she could get the last 2 points for movement. All great news, she just wants to be difficult. Also found that she is head down.
Dr's appt was good. I've gained 3lbs since my visit 2 weeks ago. I am keeping my growth US and NST on Monday. I dont see my DR that day but she will be there to talk to me if growth comes back not so good.
We talked a little about delivery plans but she said no point in talking about that until we get the US on Monday.
So I'm scheduled to see her nurse practioner the Tues before Thanksgiving but there is a chance I can see my OB instead. I would just so rather see my OB with the stuff that going on but she was super packed.
My friend in the office, gave me copies of the Nov & Dec on call schedule so I know what dates are possible for inductions
It all turned out good. I was kinda freaked out when I saw her heart rate do those decels. I knew that wasnt normal.
Yes I'm totally excited that I got the copies of the schedule. Its a no no to give patients typically but since I used to work there, she snuck them to me today.

Glad things are looking good! I know how scary the decels can be... we discovered at my last couple of appointments that Regan's HR drops when I lie on my back... so we're not doing that any more! Not even for a couple of minutes!
