Week 36-- doctor appointment update!

Ok so I posted about my doctor appointment I had earlier in the week. {check it out here}  I told you all about the symptoms I was having & such.  Well since that appointment I have kept a very close eye on my blood pressure & was still very concerned with what was going on.  I absolutely could not wait another minutre for our appointment today! We started out with getting the biophysical ultrasound done-- they measured everything, checked his heart, lungs, kidneys, bladder, etc.  they all looked good & then she just watched for movement (which like I mentioned in the other post has been veryyyyyy minimal)  He wasn't moving hardly at all so she went and got this little buzzer thing that made a weird nose and vibrated she put it on my belly right where his head was and pushed it-- he didn't move so she did it again and got a small amount of movement out of him but not much so she did it again and he still just had little reaction to this but he was breathing very fast like it scared him but he still just didn't move much so she said that she would let the doc know and he would make a decision on what to do.  So after the ultrasound we had our meeting with the doc. did the norm weight= no gain today, blood pressure=in the "normal" range, protien in the urine= just a trace which is normal. So when the doc came in he was happy that all of that stuff was normal and he also said that the baby scored a 8 out of 8 on the biophysical! I am experiencing horrible swelling today so he didn't like that and told me I was no longer able to work that I had to have 2-3 hours of bed rest a day (hubs said he said twice a day but my mom and I only heard 2-3 hours a day so?) I was so glad that things looked normal today but I was reduced to tears still because I just feel like something is wrong that he is better out here in the real world than inside me... I feel like my body is going to fail him-- because just because everything is normal today doesn't mean tomorrow won't be a bad day... so I expressed how I felt to the doc and I also told him about the movement & he said that he was concerned also and that Monday we would come in to do a non-stress test on the baby to check movement and heart and such... so I'm glad that he is still taking steps to make sure that baby is ok and he said that he would rather have him out too before something bad happens and what not... so we "may" get induced next week... I will be full term on Monday!!!

Other Exciting news... He is currently weighing 6 lbs 14 oz!!! so he is a healthy weight!!

I am looking forward to the test Monday because I am only feeling him have very small light movements and I'm only feeling it about once an hour but there are times I will go 2 hours with no movement so I look forward to knowing he's still ok!

Also, baby shower is Sunday!! Can't wait for this!! :)
