Today's regular OB appointment didn't go so well.
First off I checked in. I get my vitals checked by the nurse
Right arm BP: 163/88
Left arm BP: 152/95
Weight: still no extra gained. I've only gained a whole 2 pounds for this pregnancy.
I go back to the waiting room. Another nurse calls me back and says that they will schedule me for Labor and Delivery for Friday.
I said: "WHAT!?" "NOOOOO"
Then she clarified that it was for the non stress test since it falls on a holiday. Phew okay I'll be fine just have to get my heart back out of my throat.
Since we don't have time for the non stress test before the doctor we head back to the waiting room.
Next nurse calls me back.
Doctor Canady told me after looking over my chart that this means he is taking the baby early. Um, yeah I know I figured as much. His words were: "We need to end this pregnancy now." He said if I don't pass the non stress test today he would do it today. Luckily I passed the non stress test and the BPP (biophysical profile) ultrasound too.
Next non stress test is set for Friday. If I pass that one then we are going with a scheduled induction for Sunday at exactly 37 weeks.
So glad the nursery is all set up and that I bought plenty of newborn clothes for baby girl. We are prepared for the most part. Still chokes me up a lot to know that she has to be born three weeks early because as the doctor said it is not the baby they are worried about losing it is me. I want to be there for her.
So I'm going to work a bit more on her scrap book today since I have new ultrasound photos to put in the book. Still waiting on the maternity photos from the session. My photographer went on vacation and is suing someone right now which means that things are a bit behind schedule.
If I remember I'll let you all know how it goes on Friday, in-between I still have one last appointment on Thursday with my Perinatologist.
