A Little Paranoia Won't Hurt Anyone!

I've been a little worried since my last check-up on Wednesday. The doctor asked if the baby was moving quite a bit (and of course she has been). He said to make sure she is moving constantly throughout the day and if I notice a decrease in movement, to go straight to labor and delivery. Well, being the worrier I am.....I started paying a lot more attention to movement. Maybe my mind has been playing games on me, but I swear I have been noticing less and less movement. Just to be safe, I called my doctor today and explained my concerns. He basically said, "when in doubt.....go get checked out." So off I went to AF hospital. Of course, everything was fine...the heartbeat was strong and no cause for concern. Still no contractions though (which is good considering I am having a C-section). So away I went with a little peace of mind to get me through this weekend!

I've been wondering, but I didn't want to be a nag! Well you better text me if anything happens. Have a great weekend and sleep in! I can't wait to see this cute little girl.

That mean doctor. Doesn't he know there's not much room for her to move anymore. Glad everything was okay. My doctor told me at about 26 weeks if someone puts their ear up to the belly they can hear the heartbeat. It took Jeff a minute to find it the first time, but he's my little heart monitor every time I get a little anxious that I haven't felt any movement. Have Brian give it a try. Good luck making it through the weekend. I can't wait to see the little beauty.

It is so nice to have peace of mind. Especially during a time when you think you are going to loose your mind during the last days of pregnancy.

I've been through that same situation more than once. It's funny once they suggest something, what do they think is going to happen? Hang in there and good luck!
