I had another NST last night and again Zack had a wandering baseline heart rate. After 40 minutes he was non reactive so she called the on call OB to see what she said. I was almost sent for an ultra sound. The OB said since it was consistant I was ok to go home. He has been labeled with a wandering heart rate. I think I'm going to talk to my OB on monday when I go in for another NST and BPP and see if this one comes back the same can I just forgo the rest of the NST's since they all keep coming back the same and they don't seem concerned. I can understand the BPP's to watch my fluid levels since they are still low. But my Pre-E popped up out of nowhere with the girls so I don't see a test picking it up any sooner. I just want to enjoy the last weeks and not have a bunch of tests every week.
Ugh, NST really suck. I have been having to get BPP's every week now, to make sure my LO isn't suffering from IUGR considering that I have high BP. Every time they don't catch him doing practice breathing movements on the scan they send me for a NST and they are so boring! This baby seems to have a sixth sense about those scans, he ALWAYS falls asleep right before they begin and typically they don't do breathing movements while they're sleeping. I'm tired of the tests, too.

Yeah I've been doing twice weekly appointments and weekly NSTs. I agree that it makes things much more stressful. I feel like I get worked up every time I walk into the doctors office wondering what will be wrong.
