Okay, it wasn’t that early, but it was not expected. At 8:30 this morning the nurse assistant came in and said, “let’s go to Maternal Fetal Medicine for your ultrasound.” I had no idea I was supposed to have an ultrasound today. Usually I know it is coming, but not this time. They told me it was to check my fluid. My fluid is fine. It is 13 cm. That’s good. They completely made the trip worthwhile because the ultrasound tech decided to take a couple of 3D pictures. I can’t post them just yet, but I’ll give them to Jeff so he can scan them in and post them here. I’ve gotta say, that Gaby is a cutie pie. Her face is partially blocked by the placenta, but you can see pretty well.
Dr. Wilson came in to see me this afternoon. Not much new, we just talked about if I would go home at 34 weeks (this Monday) or not. I should put up a poll. I asked Dr. Wilson about why the ultrasound this morning, but she didn’t really know. The nurse came in a little later and cleared it up. She said that Dr. Case ordered it yesterday because Gaby was apparently messing with her cord, thereby causing fluctuation in her heart rate, so she wanted to check the fluid level, which was fine.
I ended up having two shots of terb yesterday. So far none today, but I will be monitored two more times still, and I am far from confident that I will dodge it.
