Today's Update on Baby/Kristen

I saw my OB today. I had a NST (non stress test) done. Basically, they hook me up to the monitors and watch for fetal heart rate acceleration and also watch to see if I had any contractions. The baby did great! I also had a BPP (biophysical profile), which is a sonogram to measure the baby's breathing reflex, amount of amniotic fluid, heart rate, and movements. He scored an 8/8, so that's good news too!

The bad news is that my OB wants me to stay on strict bedrest for the next 2 weeks until I am 36 weeks. I'm not happy about that...and for those of you who know me well, know that I am always on the go. This sitting/laying down stuff is killing me...but, if it will keep baby in, that's what I'll have to do. I think that the not cooking, cleaning, and taking care of Colin are the hardest on me. I never realized how much I enjoyed doing those things until I can't do them anymore.

Miguel is doing so wonderful! He's totally picking up all of my slack on top of working. I know it's draining him, though.

I'll see my OB again next Tuesday (I'll see her weekly now) for another NST & BPP, and will update again if anything changes.

We would definitely still appreciate your prayers. Baby needs to stay in for 2 more weeks!

    I am praying for you and I am glad he scored so well on his tests today! I am so sorry about the bedrest, that totally sucks.


Leave me some love!
