So after the mini scare yesterday with my BP and the hospital releasing us saying it's fine, we go to our appt today to find out
1. My fluid levels are low (oligohydramnios) 2. My BP is actually high, contrary to what the hospital said 3. Baby Boots' growth has slowed down, he's only 35th percentile now (possible placental insufficiency) 4. He can't pass an NST because his activity level is so low (no movement in an hour, even after drinking OJ and cold water) 5. No improvement on his kidney function
So after an ultrasound and an hour on the NST equipment they finally let us go saying they saw enough heart rate activity to be satisfied. But I have to do a 24-hour urine collection to check for protein, twice weekly NSTs, weekly ultrasounds to check fluid levels and weekly OB appts from here on out.
I was worried about him coming at 36 or 37 weeks vs. 38, now I'm worried I won't even make it to 36 weeks.
Of course I'm totally freaked out, crying, and pissed off at the Universe. Why can't I just have a normal pregnancy???
