well, yesterday was a helluva day. Went in for the NST and baby wasn't reacting. No news to me, as baby was maybe sleeping or just mellow... hadn't been the previous couple hours when I was at work, just dancing around in my belly. So, they then tested the amniotic fluid again via ultrasound. It was still low... something like 6-7. My midwife then completely freaked me out and sent me to labor and delivery. She said something MUST be wrong... there is no reason for fluid to be that low at 33 weeks. Also, baby's head and other body parts are on the 50-90 percentile while abdominal circumference is only 14%. Again, she said something MUST be wrong. So, she sent me walking over to labor and delivery, crying... thinking I must be leaking and might have to deliver the baby w/in the next day or so.
So, I got over there and they monitored baby again. Baby was awake then and did awesome.. reacting... no issues. The Dr. came in and did ANOTHER ultrasound. More amniotic fluid... 8 or something... not great but not a huge worry, she said. She did measurements and baby is like 5 lbs, measuring 32.5 weeks... I'm 33 weeks! So, no small baby. By this point my husbad is livid because of all the stress we had been dealing with and false red flags. Midwife then came in and tested fluid AGAIN, and fluid was up to 14. Baby must have peed, she said. WTF?!!!!!! She looked at all ultrasounds and said everything looked fine and sent me home. I am still processing the whole thing. What a mess. Good thing is, baby is fine... but I could have told them that.
