Well, it all star6ted on Thursday at my 32 week OB appointment. Baby's HR was 122, normal, but on the low end. Also, I was measuring 2 1/2 cm small then I should have, so basically, I didn't have any growth from my last appointment 2 1/2 weeks earlier. I also hadn't gained any weight from my last appointment. They scheduled a sonogram for tomorrow to check the size of the baby.
On Saturday I wasn't feeling quite right all day long. I was also very very tired. in the mid afternoon, I started having fairly regular, frequent contractions while we were at our Pastor's house in Arlington. I called and spoke to my OB who told me is sounded like contractions and that I should head to L&D to get checked out. We packed up and made the hour car ride to Frisco, and by the time that we got to the hospital, the contractions had lessened. They hooked me up to a monitor and they did see some contractions, so they gave me a shot of terbutaline to stop them...which it did, thank God. They also did a test...fetal fibrinogin...to determine if they thought I would deliver within the next 2 weeks. That test came back negative, so there is a 99% chance that I will NOT deliver within the next 14 days. They sent me home and told me to rest. Hehehe, rest with a 2 year old and a shift at the local ER? I don't think so.
I'm fine now, and I have a follow up OB appointment with a sonogram tomorrow, so I'll update after that.
