I'm feeling a little envious... (and a trip to L&D)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Last time I was due on the second of the month, and Livi came early, so I was the second one in my DDC to go into labor. I'm feeling a little let down that I don't have a baby yet, now that all of these wonderful babies are being born. (But heartfelt congrats going out to the mamas and families!!!)

Oh well, I'll get over it. Just feeling a little nostalgic, KWIM?

In other news, we made a quick trip to L&D on Saturday! Babe had been really sluggish and slow all day, and by mid-afternoon I was in tears because I was so worried. I mean I hadn't seen my tummy move ALL DAY. I called my MW, and she said, "Go to the hosptial and get an NST." I started bawling. Then she felt all bad because she thought she freaked me out, but I told her that I was freaked out before I called, and that's why I called. She said, "Well, then, the system is working!"

So I went in and had the BEST nurse I have ever met in my life. She was SOOOOOO nice!!! She hooked me up to a monitor, and as soon as the cold gel hit my tummy, the baby started Riverdancing. So this one's going to be a tricky one, hmmmmm? Baby had three accelerations in about fifteen minutes, so he/she's doing just fine! I went home feeling much better, and my MW called about half an hour after I left the hospital (she had already been in touch with the nurse by phone) and apologized for scaring me and asked how I was doing. I told her I was much better, and that she hadn't scared me--she had just allowed me to do the one thing that reassured me.

Anyway, that was our "exciting" weekend, but certainly not as exciting as some others' weekends!!!

Hang in there, your turn is just around the bend! I freaked out all the time with my DD. This pregnancy I'm a little more laid back, but I get worried, too when I don't feel movment as much. I think they're just getting squished and don't have much room anymore.
