Todays NST and 34 Week Belly

Sorry I didn't post sooner, I had another LONG NST apppointment today. More than three hours, 2 NST's and 2 BPP's later we finally got Abby to cooperate. First she wouldn't stay on the monitor, then she wouldn't do her breathing, then she hiccuped for 30 min, then wouldn't do the monitor again and on and on. She finally passed the BPP with an 8/10 so I don't need another NST til Friday. It was a very long and trying day. But at least we passed. The worst was that at the end of the app't (which is on the 6th floor) I discovered that the elevator was broken. SO I had to haul my very large self down 6 flights of stairs. I thought I was going to die.

Anyway, I am off to the OB tomorrow morning around 11. Hopefully that will be a short, uneventful appointment.

Happy Anniversary!

Sorry the elevator was broken! That sounds like a crappy end to a long, tiring day...

Hopefully you'll get some nice rest before your next appointment!

Just curious... Have you scheduled your C-Section yet?

I hate to ask this, but all the NST and so on seem to be stressing you out. Is the daily strapping on of the wires and ultrasound monitors really necessary?
At this point, it seems like both babies ARE taking practice breaths, even though they don't seem to want to do it on cue. What are they looking for that they aren't seeing?
Worried about you being tied to the table for so long.....
Oh and that elevator thing just sucks out loud. They needed some handsome male nurses to carry you down in a litter.... Seems only fair.
