I know I said I wouldn't post about them anymore but I will be going 2x a week for a NST, BPP and Fluid check. I'll go Monday and Thursday until either they deliver early or I have my c-section on the 28th. So this is where I will update on any issues.
Testing this morning went well. He passed everything. Fluid was 9.5. So we are good until Thursday.
I had my 37 week check up today. I'm still closed up tight like fort knox (her words) But they had to take my BP twice since my first reading was 136/92 and the second was 140/92. I have some swelling present and since I've been dealing with headaches the last few days she is thinking my Pre-E is setting in. I have to do a 24 hour urine collection and turn it into L&D tomorrow when I go in for my testing. She instructed me to not eat or drink anything after midnight thursday and call first thing Friday morning to get my levels. If its over 300 she is sending me in to deliver. She starts her vacation the 14th so the OB that would deliver me is the same OB I had with Hailey and I loved her and would have went back to her but she stopped taking my insurance. So there is a chance I could be having him Friday. I'm going to try and not think that just in case my levels come back ok so I don't get my hopes up.
Had my NST, BPP, Fluid check and Doppler. He passed the BPP after a lot of shaking and trying to wake him up to get the movements. NST was fine too. Fluid levels were 7. So now I just wait for the results from my 24 hour collection. I have a huge feeling its going to come back ok and that we will still be counting down to the c-section. I'm really trying not to get my hopes up though.
No delivery today. I told them I was not able to get in for my nst and others tests on monday since they are fully booked and that I am not going to L&D for it either. I'll go next thursday and following monday and thats it. Since they keep coming back ok I'm done! I will not struggle to get in monday for them and will go thursday and again the 24th and i am not booking any for the 27th since i have my c-section the following day. I'm emotionally spent. So I am not going to update this anymore since the news will continue to be the same. So I will officially not be giving birth till the 28th.
That's what happened to me last week. I'm on a pretty high dose of Labetalol right now, and when I turned in a jug at L&D at 36 weeks it was exactly 300mg. My appointment the next week she said if it were anything over 300 they would definitely induce. But when I turned it in last Saturday (37 weeks) is was 200mg! I have no idea how it could have gone down! I don't think it's much higher now, I have next to no swelling, and no symptoms, but my BP has been borderline so they may just want to induce me this weekend, but definitely not past next weekend. Pre-E is the pits!

Yeah she mentioned the swelling in my feet, ankles and hands. I think with everything that has been going on with my up and down test results she wants to just be on the safe side and since I'm full term now she doesn't want to risk keeping him longer.
