Another trip to L&D

This child is going to make me crazy before he comes. Severe back pain landed me in L&D yesterday. They monitored him and he was moving like crazy.Kept kicking the monitor and making a huge ruckus lol. The midwife seen me and she said I was having contractions but they were small and that it isnt causing my cervix to dialate just something we are gonna have to watch.They did monitor me a little longer than normal cause his heartrate was very flat,even when he was very active. He stayed between 135 and 137 the whole time. He also had 3 decels dropped to 117,113 and then 120.Nurse said these are normal but as a mom I cant help but worry. They are going to send the results from that to my dr and I will mention it next time I go and see what he says. Joshua( my youngest) had his cord around his neck 3 times and we lost his heartrate during delivery for a while and it was very scary.

If this makes you feel better, the monitor could have moved and that caused the heart rate to drop/not get picked up. It happens a lot especially when baby moves around a lot.

I hope everything stays ok!

glad all is well. I know how it is to worry. I was at the doc yesterday for another extra appt as well. I have been feeling some increased pressure down there and Thursday night I lost a piece of my mucus plug (99% sure that is what it was, I lost my plug with my first). I called doc 1st thing Friday and they said I could come in to make sure all was well. No dilation, water did not break. I can't make it from one regular appt to the next! My little Landon is keeping me on my toes...
