Life with Coco and Gigi... and Jack-Jack too!

Life as a Mom, A Homesteader, A Blogger and A Wife.

NST's, BPP's, OB's... Oh my!

Well, as it turns out I did end up in the hospital yesterday after all, but thank goodness I didn't have to stay too long. It wasn't for contractions but rather for the girls lack of cooperation again. I failed the NST AGAIN, although Gracie came close to passing. Abby again wanted nothing to do with being monitored. They decided to go to the tried and true BPP. It took a while to get Abby to do everything she needed to do, but she did pass with an 8/10. Gracie on the other hand decided that she didn't want to do any baby breaths, so she failed with a 6/10. The peri sent me to the hospital for prolonged monitoring and told me that all my testing now has to be at the hospital. This stinks b/c instead of driving 5 minutes I have to drive 25, pay to park, walk through the hospital, wait longer, blah, blah, blah.

Anyway, I waited about 45 minuts to be seen and got put on the monitor. Of course they were both very well behaved at the hospital and passed the NST easily. I think they like to make a liar out of me. I was supposed to stay on for 2 hours, but the babies were reactive in about 45. The nurse called the peri and she said I could be let go until Friday. So I go back on Friday for another NST and then again on Tuesday.

I did meet with the OB this am and everything looks ok. I have to rest a lot more (plus I have been "yelled at" by my Mom, Dad, Sister and Hubby about doing too much). I am measuring 46 weeks now. My weight gain so far is at 37lbs, not too bad for two. Next week we will talk about scheduling the C-section although the nurse said she doesn't think I will make it to my schedule date. Guess only time will tell. The contractions have been a little better today. I have only had about 15 or so today. So I am now off to get off my feet and get myself some rest. I plan on keeping these buns in the oven a few more weeks. :>)

What about me?? I yelled too! ;)

Glad the ctx aren't that bad today. Hopefully that's directly related to you taking it more easy. Now if only you could get rid of that sinus "junk"...

About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
