You know those days where you wish for a normal and boring appointment? Today is one of those days!

Had my 30 week check-up today (so far nothing has been off, my appointments are fifteen minutes. I go in, say the same things over again, HR and fudal check, and then I'm sent on my merry way).

Well today little Victoria's heart rate was tracing between 90 and 180. She would have random periods of no heartbeat and my uterus has grown 0, nothing, nadda. So I was sent up to Labor and Delivery, they checked me in, strapped me to a fetal monitor, and there I sat for close to four hours. Heart rate continued to fluxuate but nothing lower than 120 and nothing higher than 160. For an active LO, this was much improved from the office check. Doc just said no exercise, no lifting, and call if her movements change.

Tomorrow I have to go in for an ultrasound to check fetal growth. At first she said, "you're little and so I'm thinking you are growing out instead of up... we'll re-check growth next time." Then she re-measured and told me she wants me to go in tomorrow.

On top of everything, DH had a work call at 11AM and was told he had to go to a lovely conference in the Cities so he was not there.

Her heart was funky, she's not growing, and I all alone and hormonal. God please let everything be okay tomorrow...

How scary Kelly And not having hubby there makes everything worse. Let us know how everything goes. I'm sorry If it helps, they freaked out on me once with Matty because I grew like 10 cm in a month and it was all positional. Maybe she's just in your back making it impossible to measure and hard to capture a good hb.

I'm so sorry to hear this. I pray that everything is okay. My sister in law went through something similar and they did an early c-section and she has a beautiful 7 month old now. KUP

I hope everything looks good tomorrow. I agree that position can have a huge effect on measurement. It's a good sign that her HB was back to normal once they got you on the monitor.

Ohhh Kelly, I'm so sorry all this happened and while you were alone.
I'm glad to hear her heartrate was doing better in L&D and praying you get good results from the US tomorrow.

Did she say is she thinking it could be IUGR or placental deteriation or something like that?

Aww Try not to worry. They always freak out with any change because it's better to be safe than sorry. As for growth, you are definitely growing...just look at your pics! You are growing out for sure. And babies have a funny way of hiding when they want to and then bulging out when they want to. I'll be praying that your appointment goes better tomorrow. Sorry dh is not there to comfort you

I think I slept a total of two hours. DH doesn't seem too concerned as he is snoring louder then I thought physically possible. I kept having dreams of doctors appointments... It's crazy how these parenting fears follow a person everywhere.

My appointment time will be set the moment the u/s clinic opens. DH is home so he better be coming. He can bring the laptop and work while I drive.

Thanks for the positive thoughts and prayers. She's moving around like crazy so I know she's alive, I just want her to be healthy... But then again don't all parents have that wish?!

I'm sorry you are stressing so hard. She's moving a lot and they did send you home so there must not be too much concern. Just try to get some rest and soon you will get your appointment and I'm sure everything will be fine.

Kelly - I'm SO sorry that I wasn't here when this got posted! My poor DDB, I'm so sad that you have to worry like this. For what it's worth, I'm also tiny - and I GROW tiny...I routinely measure behind on fundal height measurements. With Marlowe, it prompted an extra 3 ultrasounds...all for her to pop out at 7 pounds 12 oz...and perfectly healthy. (But not before my OB tried to convince me to induce and take Marlowe early to "ensure" that she was okay...I declined.) Rebecca is right - some babies just like to hide a bit, and with as active as Victoria has been, I bet she was just playing a little hide and seek on you.

As far as the heart...well, we'll figure out what's going on with that tomorrow - but take heart (no pun intended) in knowing that thus far she has been perfect. There's no indication or reason to think that there's a real problem thus far...more likely it's just a little hiccup. Something that some day you can tell her all about how she scared her mommy - and she'll ask you to tell again and again...

Last of all..keep us posted please...if you need to talk, you've got my number. HUGS.

*hugs*

FWIW- I measure small too. The nurses in L&D ALWAYS comment on how if I'm so and so weeks along I should have a fundal height x amount higher than what it is. My doctor never seems to be bothered by it. My uterus is tilted so everything grows back. Could that be what it is?

I really hope your appointment goes well today! Thoughts and prayers your way!

My uterus is tilted, but it's tilted forward. Who knows. I've been measuring dead on and now weeks behind.

The gut instinct says 'Kelly you're fine' but the FTM syndrome is playing the what if game.

Our U/S place actually opened at seven so I was able to make my appointment. 1215.

And now I get to strategically place my rear on the couch till then.
