I went to my regular NST appt yest - they had mixed up scheduling so I didn't get an NST, but an ultrasound instead. It was a bio-physical profile. That's a test to check babies movement, practice breathing, etc. He gets 30 min to pass and what you want is a score of 8. It took her quite a while to get him to move and practice breathing, but apparently she was happy with the test.
I was not. He's ALWAYS moved a lot in ultrasounds. The night before also he seemed less active. I asked why they didn't do an MCA test, since I am due for one. They thought I didn't need one anymore -- I asked for one more just for peace of mind. They were fine with that and scheduled it for Friday.
SO - today I went in again for an NST. Baby was moving, but not much and not strong like normal. I was going nuts - am I crazy? They all think I am crazy... but in the past when baby stopped moving something was wrong. Well, he did not produce a normal NST. He got the ultrasound test - 6 of 8. Refused to practice breathing. A 2 or 4 is "baby in distress." A 6 is like, limbo - not a healthy 8 but not rushing you to the hospital.
So they did the MCS dopler to check the blood in his brain - it had jumped up. He's on average about 1.2 and today was 1.7. Big change for him, though it's not a deadly reading. So the doc was like, he's not totally healthy, but we don't need to rush you to delivery either. We'll check it tomorrow and see if he gets worse. If not, he can stay this way until you're term.
But after conversing with the rest of the high risk team, who were split 50/50, they decided we should go to the hospital for more testing. So, as soon as my husband gets here (my mom's) we are headed to Good Sam.
Pray for my SANITY. I am NOT happy about the hosp, though it's good for the baby. It brings back BAD memories and I know I will panic a bit!
Poor baby... so mysterious. We need your prayer for him and for us to keep faith.
