Sorry it took me so long to update on the appointment today... It was LONG! I thought I was going in for a nonstress test...I ended up having to go in for a nonstress test, ultrasound, regular appointment, and consult with the anesthesiologist. It took over 3 hours for it all! Sheesh! And so I got home right in time to instantly go back, pick up Brandon, and take him to his social skills therapy. I'm a bit sleepy right now obviously, so I don't have the pictures scanned from today's ultrasound yet. There's only 2 of them though because she is breech and facing backwards, so there wasn't much interesting to look at. LOL!! One is of her foot, and the other one is the funniest picture I have ever seen. It's the back of her head, and you can see a head full of spikey hair!
: It's hilarious, because I've never seen hair on an ultrasound, but you can clearly see that she has a lot of spikey hair.
So anyhow, in order of the visits... Nonstress test--there was actually another lady in the room at the same time having a NST as well, and her machine was up very loud, so I couldn't hear Amelia at all. But apparently she actually had a long run of great heart beats--a couple PACs but NOTHING like the ugliness last week. She was also reactive, which is good! Other than that, I'm not too sure about what happened since like I said, I could only hear the other baby's heartbeat.
Ultrasound...she's breech and has a head of spikey hair. LOL! Other than that, I'm pretty sure the ultrasound tech last week was wrong, because today she is 2 ounces smaller than she was last week (3 lbs 11 oz)--obviously she's not dieting in there, so last week the tech probably measured her a little big. But, since 28 weeks, she's gained a full pound, so that's good. She's right on target for being about 6 lbs 8 oz at 36 weeks (So, when Brandon was 6 lbs 15 oz at 40 weeks, that makes it slightly funny. LOL!) She is measuring 30w6d now, so exactly on target. Her head...it's measuring almost 33 weeks though. Hahaha...she's got the same big head as the other kids.
And she didn't have ANY PACs on the ultrasound! So, it looks positive that she just had a virus or some weird stressor last week that made her heartrate look odd. We still see the fetal cardiologist next week just to be sure.
And Amelia has a birth day...the c-section is scheduled for January 14, 2009 at 8:00 AM! So, 34 days from today (well, in a couple hours...) Since we'll have to be there really really early, Brandon's probably going to play hookie from school that day to play with Jocelyn in the waiting room.
And then we went to L&D to see the anesthesiologist since the peri wanted to make sure the anesthesiologist wouldn't freak out about the platelets. We went through all of my information and signed consent forms, and so we're all set.
So, that's it from today.
