I just got back from ANOTHER trip to L&D for a NST. The baby's movement has decreased a fair bit since the wreck but seemed to almost cease in the past 24 hours. I tried all the tricks and could get him to respond to me manipulating him with my hands after a bit, but sugar and caffeine and food did nothing. It kept me up most the night with worry and his heartrate on my at home monitor wasn't picking up accels either.
So the monitored us and after a half hour he still hadn't moved any, they flipped me around and manipulated him some and gave me some OJ. About 10 minutes later he woke up, PISSED, and made up for lost movement very quickly.
I am to continue to keep an eye on his movement until my appointment on Thursday, but I am guessing he is running out of room and tired from the stress of the wreck and everything. I know I am.
This was my 5th visit to L&D since the wreck and I am sick of all the back and forth!
I wish things would either go back to normal or he would just come. Things were ok before the wreck aside from just being in pain thanks to an irritable uterus... now it feels like hell. The pain and the stress and the bedrest and UGH!
I just want this to be over with and him be ok and us not need any more visits to any healthcare places for a while!
