Well I got a very unexpected non-stress test today!! My doula came over for a visit this afternoon, and I was talking to her about how I feel a little unsupported by my midwife practice...my appointments keep getting rescheduled or canceled, so I had gone two weeks before going in for an appointment at 39.5 weeks, and it's going to be a full week and a half from that appointment before I see them again - and I'm overdue!!!
Anyway, so I was feeling weird about that, plus feeling like I've had the flu for a couple days. I was telling her I was feeling kinda miserable and that I thought maybe the baby's movements had slowed a little. I wasn't really that worried about it, to be honest...I still feel her move, it's just not as much and I figured it's only because she's running out of room! Well she really encouraged me to call the midwife and just check in with her and let her know how I was in advance of my appointment. Sometimes I have ended up feeling like I'm a bother when I call, but I decided to anyway. Well within ten minutes my midwife had called me back and told me I had an appointment for a non stress test at the hospital in 15 minutes! Wow!!!! So I am feeling better, lol. Baby did great on the test and was more active than I've felt in days. She even kicked right at the monitor itself several times, and ended up giving herself the hiccups at the very end of the test. So not only do I have a fashionably late diva, but a drama queen as well!
