Babies update...

Yesterday we went for a check up on the babies to see how they are doing.

Baby A is doing well. She was sleeping during the u/s so they were able to check her. Heartrate was perfect, blood flow through the cord was perfect and she passed the BPP. No distress there.

Baby B was concerning a bit. She's fine but over starting on Friday, she decreased her movements incredibly. Friday I think I got about 2 kicks from her, but I read that movements slow down the bigger they are. She was fine on Thursday so I didn't think anything about. Saturday, the same thing. Nothing until that night and then only a kick or two. So in my head I'm thinking "She's just in a bad spot with no room." A was moving constantly, so I also thought that maybe I was confusing the movements and they were both moving, it just felt like one. So after Sunday being the same way, I started to worry. Sunday night, I slept very little. Monday I got up, showered and left for my drs appointment. I was very short with everyone and worried about of my mind. While waiting for my dh to finish at work, I went in and got a decaf french vanilla iced coffee and drank it. We went to the dr and while sitting in the waiting room, Baby B started kicking and squirming and moving around. I was so relieved.

When I went back for my u/s, the tech asked me how I was doing and I said "better now". She asked what I meant and I told her. She gave me a speech that made me feel so bad as a mother. and it made me keep asking "What If". She also said I should of contacted my OB and told them. Then she continually complained that Baby B was too active now and she kept kicking her cord so the blood flow couldn't be measured. I said "It must of been the coffee". She then said that "IT needs to cooperate because I'm not missing lunch again". Ummm..... "She hasn't been moving in days, I'm very happy about it."

When I went home, I called my OB and told the nurse that Baby B wasn't moving over the weekend but that I thought it was because of the lack of room and should I be doing kick counts and she said that if I'm concerned I can call and that the tech was trying to make me feel guilty. She asked about how they were moving now and checked the report from the maternal fetal medicine, which she said was perfect so there was no reason I should be concerned.

So that's it.

That's all very stressful! I'll be thinking about your girls and praying for a safe delivery soon! Good luck, Tina!

I'm glad both babes are well. I have days like that, too, where I wonder why one isn't moving like usual.

When I deal with people like that, I try to give them the benefit of the doubt, which *usually* helps...I suppose everybody has a bad day.
