Thursday Update

While at my non-stress test today, they tell me they aren't seeing what they want to see and that I needed to go to the hospital. I was ticked off. Those are not words you want to hear. On our way to the hospital I made Ryan stop and get some food and something sugary so I could try to wake girl baby up. We eventually made it to perinatology. They did what was called a biophysical profile on our little girl. They watched her "breathe" and move her arms and legs to make sure she was still reactive. They also measured her fluid, which was a little low. This is somewhat alarming, but we are going to keep a close eye on it. I get to go meet with Dr. S. on Monday where he will do a more thorough examination and measurements to make sure things are okay. I really hope we can keep these babies in for a few more weeks. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
