i just got scheduled for weekly non stress tests and to my surprise. When i went in i get placed on oxygen and told i may have an infection cause my babies heartrate would go real high n then drop to normal. I got put on iv n they said that helped but it was still going high and low but not as much. They decided not to send my blood in to gt checked but i was wondering should i be getting a second opinion??? 38 weeks
I'm sorry you're dealing with such stress. I don't have any knowledge of this sort of complication but my feeling is if you don't feel comfortable the doctor's opinion/advice, I would suggest looking for a second opinion. I think there is a lot to be said for mother's intuition! Good luck.
