Had Amniocentesis done this morning.

Aug 13, 2012 - 5 comments

I got to the doctor around 08:00 and around 9 the doctor came in and did an ultrasound. Christian is doing perfect, weight is about 6 lbs 12oz and heart rate was 143 bmp, he is head down and was moving a lot during the US. Then she identified the pocket of fluid to insert the needle, gave me a local anesthetic to numb the area and proceded to insert the needle and draw the fluid. The whole thing lasted less than 10 minutes and I just felt the sticks and the pressure and thank God I did not see the needles going in.
After that they took me to another room and did an NST, I was cramping a lot and had a couple of strong contractions during the whole 45 minutes I was monitored but nothing to worry about. They told me to rest for the rest of the day and call my OB if the cramping gets worse, the contractions get stronger and more regular or I have any unusual symptoms.
I'm glad it is over, they should have the results tomorrow and hopefullly his lungs will be mature enough to
go ahead with my C-section on Friday

Thank God everything went well. I've been cramping on and off all day but feeling good. I have an OB app tomorrow and hopefully can get the results of the amnio. I can't wait to see Christian and hold him in my arms.
