Obviously we still have not decided on a name
This past week has been a crazy one!
Maddix got the flu this last weekend and I figured it was only a matter of time before I got it too! Well Monday night it hit! I was up all night, throwing up every 15-20 minutes. Being this far along pregnant and throwing up was definitely the worst! My huge ol’ belly barely let me get close enough to the toilet!
Anyway, the throwing up caused my stomach to obviously contract, which led to some heavy bleeding.
I went into the Dr the next morning just to make sure everything was fine, I was still bleeding but not as much as during the night. They checked the baby’s heartbeat, it was good. Checked me, I was dilated to a 2 ½ and my cervix is very “ripe and ready.” The midwife still wanted to make sure everything was ok so she had me do an ultrasound. I LOVE that I have been able to have so many ultrasounds this pregnancy (considering the circumstances J) Baby girl looked great, was moving great and was measuring almost on track, a little small. They estimated that she weighs about 6 lbs 11 oz.
They sent me home and told me that this little girl is ready to come and as soon as I start to have some more consistent contractions that my body is ready!
Later that night I received a call from the Dr’s office informing me that the Dr who reviewed my ultrasound wanted me to go into the hospital for further testing. They were concerned that I may have a placental abruption. This scared me to death! I went into Timpanogos hospital and they put me on the Fetal heart monitors. I stayed there for about 3 ½ hours, they ran some blood tests and determined that everything was fine. They want me to go into the office every week and do a Non Stress Test just to watch the baby and make sure everything continues to progress normally.
I am SO ready for this little girl to get here and to not be worrying everyday. She is moving like crazy everyday and I am finally nesting!
I’ll be 37 weeks tomorrow so anytime she wants to come I will be ready to go to the hospital!
Thanks to everyone who helped and has offered to help! Means more than you know!
I’ll keep you posted with any news!
