So the doctor never stopped by yesterday, on a day I actually had questions for him. Go figure..the night nurse told me Jacob did NOT pass his bpp because they did not find a pocket of fluid which brings up so many questions. What does that mean for Jacob? Is he starting to go down hill? Am I at a higher risk for pre-term labor and another stillbirth like our Ob told us we would be? Can they still see his stomach and bladder (atleast then we'd know if his kidneys were still functioning) could it be harder to see because he is getting bigger or the way he is positioned? I went to bed with all of these questions unanswered....thankfully I slept okay last night,if it weren't for button happy neighbour who called the nurse 7 times throughout the night, I would have slept a lot better. But on the positive side of that I was able to make sure Jacob was okay 7 times last night and he was a good boy about giving me kicks throughout the night to let me know he was okay. If for some reason there really wasn't a lot of fluid, that could explain why he had a quiet day yesterday....but again, it still worries me that there is something else going on so we will have to talk to the doctor today.
Not that talking to the doctors ever really makes me feel better because I know, no matter what they say God has the power and control. But it would be nice to have the doctors opinion.
The resident just stopped by. She only confirmed what I expected about the low fluid but she is going to come by and scan me later to see if we can see some fluid and a stomach and bladder. Babe passed his NST today in 14 minutes, he started to get the hiccups which got his heart rate going really well so he passed pretty quickly....though I swear we were told the first day if the baby had hiccups they had to do it at a different time for some reason. But he's had it twice now with the hiccups and it seems fine.
They aren't doing my menu right. I was told to write down the sustitues on the sheet of what I wanted but they aren't bringing me what I write, there just giving me whats on the menu, which some I can't eat so we need to get that straightened out. I won't make it three weeks with some of this food and I can't eat pizza everyday...or can I?
We just had our ultrasound (9:30pm) things went very well. Jacob moved around a lot, was breathing the entire time and had a nice pocket of fluid 8 out of 8....I feel much better. They kind of forgot and I wasn't going to say anything but I felt I needed to speak up. I don't want to bother them with stuff but in reality I shouldn't care, thats why I am here. I need to do everything for Jacob that I can, I need to be his advocate. So here's to speaking up.
Tomorrow is my LOA and I could not be more excited to go home and see my fur babies. I miss them so much and I hear they miss me too. Time for bed now...hoping happy button is a little more quiet tonight I need a good nights rest!
