This morning I woke up with a terrible gas-like cramp. I tried lying in bed from 8AM to 9:30AM in hopes to sleep it off, but that didn’t seem to work. The cramp was soooo bad that I had to lie in a fetal position, and all I could do was cry. I thought about calling JMK and suggesting that he come home from work… But I figured this wasn’t the real deal. Plus, I knew being that I would have an ultrasound today that he would come home for that.
This afternoon, JMK and I went to the hospital to have the emergency BPP ultrasound. The baby is doing great. She is currently measuring 7lbs, 2oz — and since her head is extremely low the measurements are approximations. The only problem is that Lil Miss C is running out of room, and as a result the amniotic fluid is extremely low. I took the results to my midwife after the ultrasound and she went over them with me. Lil Miss C scored an 8 out of 8, which is amazing. My midwife has booked me at the hospital for a repeat emergency BPP and NST test on Friday (so 3 days from now) to recheck fluid levels. After that appointment I am to page the midwife on-call to go over the results and have my induction booked. Most likely for the long weekend, should I not go on my own before then.
As I was leaving the midwife clinic, my midwife told me not to worry as she doesn’t see why I won’t go into labour on my own before Friday. This threw me off a little considering at each appointment with them leading up to now, they basically told me not to expect to go into labour any time soon. Kinda makes me wonder…
JMK and I popped into Kelsey’s on the way home from the clinic to grab an early dinner, and we figured we may as well take advantage of the opportunity to enjoy our last meal out as a couple together. We had a nice time, and it really helped take me away from everything that was going on — even if it was just for an hour.
Anyway that is my update for now… I’m not in the highest of spirits at the moment, and totally just want to curl up and cry. While it was nice to see my little girl through sonogram today, I’d much rather be holding her in my arms right now and knowing that everything is okay… =(
