, i had to see a diffrenet doc for my appt since my ob is out this week, as soon as she did the dopplar she told me they were sending me for a non stress test as my little miss's heartbeat was too low for the doc to be comfortbale, so the doc walked me down the hall, where they hooked me up to the monitors and all after about 10 minutes the nurse came in and said your baby must be sleeping pretty good because she isnt moving, and told me to lay on my left side, after another 10 minutes they said well lets try ahving you lay on the other side, by now i was starting to panick as little misses heart rate never got above 119 or so. then they had me drink some really cold water and eat a couple graham crackers, and still nothing, finally the nurse said were gonna use the stim, on her to wake her up because it have been over a half hour now and she still had not moved, so they did the stim for a couple of minutes and her heartrate dropped even lower, into the 90's but within 2 minutes it skyrocketed back up to 154, and then settled at about 139-142 adn stayed there as she was freaking out and rolling around like crazy.... the nurse said wow you have one stubborn baby in there, she sure didnt want to wake up for us , so anyhow they took the results back over to the doc who siad she wanted me to get wo non stress test a week til i have little miss, but the nurse said that since i cmae in on thursday i would go next on monday and well, monday morning is when we are set to have her. so 3 more days and she will be here, and i hope she sleeps as good when she gets her as she has in the last few days put i know thats wishful thinking.

I am still trying to run around and get everything done we made a last minute run to target and walmart to get some last minute things... but i still need to go to the grocery mart, and finish the laundry...... aaaaaaaaaaaaaaghgg 3 more days to get it all [email protected]!!!!
