Had my re-check with Dr. Clown today...let it be known that he still lives up to his nickname.  So, with all the contractions I've been having...he has put me on modified bedrest for the duration.  Basically, although everything looks to be ok, they don't want to take any chances with I will be working from home and on my feet for limited amounts of time.  I can go to the store to get a gallon of milk, but not to do a big shopping trip...things like that.  I will wrap things up at work as best I can tomorrow and maybe Wednesday and dial-in the rest of the time.  When I go back next Tuesday to the doc, they will run another fetal fibronectin test to test the liklihood about the baby coming within the next two weeks...hopefully this will be negative again.

I also talked to Philly about everything, and they are fine to bring us up there whenever we'd like to go from now on...we are going to see how the test comes back next week and go from there.

That's about it!

Unexpected doctor's appointment...

Whew...what a crazy few days!  I started having contractions on Tuesday afternoon about 3:30pm and they lasted until about 1:30am...ugghh.  I called the on-call nurse and set up an appointment for Wednesday am to get everything checked out.  They ran a bunch of test and determined that all is still well, but will be keeping an extra eye on us for the next few days.  If they continue, I will be on bedrest for the duration until we go to Philly.  I spoke to the Philly nurse too and she agreed that we may neeed to come up early, but that's not to be decided yet.

The contractions have continued throughout today whenever I stand up and/or walk around....I go back to the doc on Monday and we will re-evaluate everything then.

By the way, the ultrasound doc said he doesn't think he sees any signs of club feet and her hydocephaleus measurements are basically stable from last month....YEAH!

Lamest/most boring post ever...and that's OK with me!

Had my 32 week appointment today with my "high-risk" OB...what a joke.  He's a nice guy but I'll never understand why I had to switch from my regular place to go see this clown.  BP-Normal, Urine Test-Normal, Weight-Normal (I'll take his word on that), Normal, Normal, Normal....I was in/out in 15 minutes-10 of which were waiting for him to get in the room.  Believe me, I'm not complaining....I'll take NORMAL any day of the week.  Next appointment is October 25 with both Dr. Clown and for another ultrasound....let's all keep the mantra from this appointment for that appointment...normal, Normal, NORMAL!
