37 1/2 week appt and trip to L & D

Feb 05, 2009 - 0 comments

So i went in for my regular weekly check up and my blood pressure was in the high 130's so my doctor sent me to L & D to be checked out.  But before that he did an internal and realized that my pelvis is very small and we are probably going to be scheduling a c-section.  i then had an ultrasound to check his position which he is the exact way he is supposed to be.  I got some cute pics of him.

then off to L & D.  i was hooked up to the NST machine and all was well.  my blood pressure stayed high the first few readings but eventually went down.  all my blood work was fine, Strep B was negative and the baby's heart was great.  So i was sent home on bed rest til my appt Monday.

It was just an awful feeling to think all is well and have the doctor turn to you and be like, Oh i'm sending you to the hospital.

i had my 32 week and 2 day check up today.  all went well.  i am measuring exactly on time which is great.  i did gain 6 lbs in 2 weeks but the doctor thinks it is from my swelling/water retention.

I asked about my pregnancy carpel tunnel and there is nothing that can be done besides where my wrist supports which after a while of wearing, they start to hurt me in a different way.

the babies heartbeat was in the 140's, nice and healthy.

i have another follow up in 2 weeks.

Oh also this doctor told me that the epidural specialists at salem hospital do not deny anyone with a back tattoo an epidural, that helps ease my mind.

30 week check up

Dec 18, 2008 - 0 comments

everything went well at my 30 week check up.  i measured at exactly 30 weeks.  i only gained about 3 lbs.  i also assured that with my back tattoo, that i would get an epidural which i showed the doctor and he said it is fine because the tattoo is not near where the needle goes.  i was so happy because i was not going through labor without meds and i told my doctor that and he laughed at me.

blood pressure was perfect also. babies heartbeat was 145-150.
