I hadn't felt little miss in 3 hours. I had dinner and a juice, and then lay down on my left side to see if she'd wake up. Nope. I gave it an hour and then went in to get checked.
Sure enough, the MINUTE they put the monitor on - she's doing the macarena.
I apologized to the nurse for a wasted trip but she was really sweet about it and said not to worry at all. Thankfully the hospital was like a tomb - the ER was entirely empty (not sure I've EVER seen that, come to think of it) and there was only me and one other girl in L&D. Apparently now that I'm coming up on the point when things went sideways with Jack, I'm getting a little twitchy and panicky.
So all is well - but this baby is TOTALLY grounded until she's 18.
I did that - at 27 weeks and again at 37 weeks They had me on an NST pushing the little button whenever I felt a kick and I must have pushed that dang button 50 times in the half hour I was on there. Stinker. Then she went MIA again for several hours after the monitors came off - I think maybe they have spidey senses.
i wouldnt worry about wasting their time, better to be safe then sorry!!
i went in at 36 weeks with Mackenzie. Mack was NOT an active baby by any means, i would get big pushing movements, but not really kicks, ever. I think it had to do with her positioning. So dont worry if Ruby isnt as active as Jack was, all pregnancies and babies are so different.
So glad all is well! Huge hugs for the scare though. I can understand how you may be a bit more anxious as you approach what was a stressful point in your last pregnancy. I started to panic when a friend just had her baby and I didn't hear anything for many hours. She had placenta previa and I was so worried she could have an undetected placenta accreta like I had. I'm sure I'll be a stressing big time come delivery day. Even though it makes you feel silly for going in when they start moving right away there, it is better than the stress you'd be feeling at home as you sat wondering or worrying.
