Almost 36 week update & induction news!
So my l&d visit was short and sweet last night. They were glad I came in, but there was no need to keep me. My BP was a little high, but nothing alarming. They gave me some zofran for the nausea that's been getting worse and that of course did wonders. Little man looked great on the monitor. I was having mild contractions (mild by my watch) every 10 to 14 minutes. The nurse checked me so I wouldn't have to wait for the OB and I hadn't changed (50% 1 cm) and VERY posterior so they let me go home. They wanted me to follow up with an NST tomorrow and see how I was today to decide on keeping today's appointment.
I insisted on going in as I was feeling worse -- nauseous again, and vomiting all morning. They were happy to have me in and did an NST to be safe. Thankfully my GBS was negative (same as with DD though I know that doesn't matter) and my bile salts went down a little bit so we're not in the severe range. My MW wrote me some prescriptions for the nausea and heartburn so I can eat better. She didn't mention it, but the last two appointments I've had I've been down three pounds (for a total of 23 gained). I am hoping the meds will help with that. They insisted I keep my threshold low for what makes me come in or call because of my PTD history and the ICP so that made me feel less insane.
We have my amnio scheduled for next Friday with an induction on Monday if he passes. I am thinking of asking for my bile salts to be redrawn Tuesday just so we have that to go against the amnio. If they go up a lot then I'm not going to be okay with going past Monday as that's when things get risky but they don't seem to think I'll get to the induction let alone amnio. ;)
If we make it through the amnio and it doesn't put me into labor or break my water, I'm insisting on DTD and pumping to help things along. I don't feel comfortable with castor oil in that we're already at risk for meconium staining with the ICP and other labor stress. I'm a little bummed to push out the dates a bit further, but the 17th is DH's lucky number. ;)
