Well so much for being positive: Bad appt — The Bump
Pregnant after a Loss

Well so much for being positive: Bad appt

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???

  • Be very cautious. If you have a doppler check out the baby heart few times a day. Also, if you be able to seek a second opinion will be great. To deliver the baby sooner might be the better option.

    Oh Boots, I'm so sorry to read this.  I can't imagine how worried you must be.  I'm just so, so sorry and sending you so many hugs right now.  I am glad they are going to be doing all the monitoring to make sure everything's okay.  I am thinking of you and will be keeping you (as I already am) in my prayers - and praying for everything to go easily and smoothly and well from here on out.
