So my doctor called this morning. I thought my appointment over At mayo went well. But apparently in the report from the mayo doctor to her they want more tests done. I think it's because he is on the small side but also because my fluid levels are low. So she said he suggested weekly monitoring. I have an appointment on Thursday, also I have to get a biophysical ultrasound and another NST. And then back to Mayo the following week.

Still kinda scary I know they are just making sur ethings are good. I just hope he stays put and grows and my fluid leves are ok. It's going to be a long 6 weeks with all these tests weekly.

I know it is really scarey for you. The NST really is one of the least invasive tests. They want to ensure that you baby is 100% fine. There is literature that says a reassuring NST is a good sign that all will go well the next week. Try to take it one week at a time. I am sure that if there is ever a problem with the NST, they will not let you leave. You will know.

Look on the bright side it sounds like they are being precautionary and the NST along with the bio u/s will let you know things are ok or if its time to deliver a bit earlier than expected. Better to know than to sit these next weeks and wonder
. Hang in there the bio u/s are not bad at all and bonus you get to see your baby weekly
