Let me begin with saying that everything turned out just fine, but it was really terrifying for a few minutes.

I'd been having lots of BH all night and baby had been sort of quiet all morning - a few nudges but not much movement. So at my regular weekly apt they decided to do a NST just to be safe. I wasn't really worried but the doc was behind anyway so it wasn't an inconvenience and I agreed.

Well the PA put the contraction monitor on and then asked where baby's HB usually was. I pointed out the spot that my OB always finds it and she sticks the monitor on. Nothing. Moves it around a bit, still nothing. She keeps moving it around for a minute or so and NOTHING. My OB usually puts the doppler on and BAM, heartbeat. So I start to get nervous. I ask "does it usually take this long?" and she says "It can..." and keeps looking. Tries the other side. Nothing. Minutes tick by and now I'm freaking out. I start to cry and I get this terrible sinking feeling in my chest. "Don't worry," she says, "I'm going to go get the doppler and we'll try that." She leaves me crying in the chair and gets the doppler. STILL can't find the heartbeat and now I'm barely holding it together, thinking "this is the moment I find out my baby is dead," and silently pleading with her to kick, move, something.

FINALLY she moves the contraction monitor a little higher and tries the doppler higher up, and she finds baby's HB, strong and regular. The MOMENT she finds it baby gives me a good hearty kick and I just start sobbing from relief. The NST went fine, baby was perfect and she moved ALL OVER the whole time (kept moving off the monitor!) and was making my whole belly move. It took me all day to calm down, though, and I felt shaky and weepy and scared even after I knew she was ok.

It was SO scary!

Thanks, ladies. I never want to have that awful sinking feeling again! I'm so relieved that she's still okay in there that even though she's been beating up my bladder and kicking me in the ribs all day I'm just happy to feel her move!

I am so glad all is OK. I think it is time for your little girl to arrive and let you hold her in your arms.
