I really wish I didnt feel so rushed at my visits. As per usual my office was running behind schedule. I went in at 315 for an nst, followed by a bpp. I was also supposed to see the doctor afterwards which didnt happen until about 445 and the office closes at 5.
Anyway...since Im already going to be 37 weeks this Friday I had asked the doc what the standard procedure was regarding GD deliveries. Do we wait til baby is ready or do they get baby out before due date? Well her response was that theyll do a test (that I didnt catch the name of since she said it so fast...but I *think* started with an "f") and that the test would involve sticking a needle in my stomach and withdrawing fluid to see if the baby would be mature to deliver and that he most likely would be out by 39 weeks.
I practically froze when she mentioned the needle in the belly test so of course...I couldnt even ask what exactly it was called so I can look into it further. I never got an amnio or cvs test done ever because I dont care how small of a risk it is, but I did not want to risk having a miscarriage after losing my other baby. Now this test has me freaking out. Do any of you know what this test is and what risks are involved?
I really wished I had just asked at the office, but again I felt rushed plus I practically froze there. Thanks in advance!
