I'm freaking out a little here. I'm 39w 3d and because of Gestational Diabetes I've been having non stress tests weekly for 6 weeks or so. Yesterday, my doctor said the baby was non reactive (or actually he said "sleepier than I'd like") based on the non stress test (heart rate was averaging around 135/bpm versus a usual 155/bpm).
So he sent me for an ultrasound that showed that everything was fine. Baby looks to be just over 7 pounds right now, with a "rind of fat developing", plenty of amniotic fluid, all other markers for movement were fine.
Having said that, he asked me to go in tomorrow for another non stress test. He also mentioned that we'd have to talk about what to do if I don't go into labor soon. I've had one c/s and 2 VBACs previously. I'd never heard this before but he said something about how being induced isn't a good idea for women who've had c/sections before.
I did a little research and found that there is indeed an increased risk of uterine rupture for women who've had c/s before.
HOWEVER- I am not convinced I should be inducing early- or is this non reactive thing a genuine worry?
I'm so scared. Does anyone have any advice/thoughts/ideas of things I can research?
