NST: NonStressTest

NST RESULTS: (before hand, I had my coffee, and was snacking on Andes Mints in the car, hoping to get her mojo going)

First of all, the nurse had me lay in a HUGE fluffy/velvety recliner, so comfy. Then she didn't strap anything to me. I had to hold the monitor the whole that weird? Seemed weird to me.
When she first put it on, Peep was nice and energetic and moving a lot. She even did a complete roll and I had to relocate her HB again. Then she was decently still, with a few subtle kicks and stuff here and there.
Results were baseline at 120-128..when she moved it'd only move up to like 133ish. During the 1st 10minutes, we had 5 good bumps in the chart, but one decel. When she rolled, her HR shot up to 176 and then dropped to 57 for about 5 seconds. Then she gradually went back up to her baseline. Once she evened back out, the next 10minutes we got 2 good bumps, but they were minor. Sara said she'd like to see better, and didn't like how long it took her to recover from her decel simply from rolling.
Apparently, she overexerts herself very easily and I am on must do kick counts everyday now. (before it was just if I was worried)
She said she'll wait and see how my counts go until my next appointment (have to write/chart them) and based on that we will see if I need another NST
oh and she said "good thing you're already planning a c-section cuz I'm not sure she'd do well with the stress of pushing"..

32 Week Check UP

Ok, sorry this is late. I have really sucked at keeping up here. ugh, sorry and hope y'all are still reading, :)
weight gain...uh YEAH, lol. But she said I looked perfect and still well within the range they want me in so la-te-da.. (I think I'm up like 4more lbs this 2weeks??)
BP was way high for me, even borderline/high for most, so they arent' happy. It was 130(something?) over 90...yeah no beuno
heartbeat was hard to detect, mainly cuz she's been a footling breech and now she's head down, almost engaged or something. BUT they kept the Doppler on me forever cuz even while she moved, they couldn't get her HR above the 120 mark. They said that is the lowest they'll accept to, sooooo
with the decreased fetal movement I'm describing, plus my BP, plus my Charley horses AND her baseline HR..I get to go back tomorrow for a NST..ahh good times, not
I also scheduled my next visit in 2 weeks.
