Home Stretch

Well, things are moving, moving, moving.
As of this week, I now see the doctor weekly, with additional visits to the hospital.
Today we attempted to do a non-stress-test at my doctor's office, but her equipment isn't quite as sophistcated as my floppy belly needs. I sat and waited for an hour and a half for some good readings and got nothing! (On top of the crappy equipment, the baby was totally being stubborn. He was asleep for the majority of the time!)
The doctor told me that she wants me to go do NSTs at the hospital TWICE a week! TWICE!! (It's because I'm on insulin.) So now I get to go see the doctor AND go to the hospital! Such a joy! But I did tell the doctor I'd do whatever it took to get a healthy baby, and I mean it!
As of Friday, I have 3 weeks to go!! WOO HOO!!

YAY! Only three weeks to go! That's a bummer that you couldn't get any readings today with your NST, but hopefully you'll be able to get some at the hospital. Won't that be exciting to go visit the hospital and see/hear all the new babies! Before you know it, your baby will be here!

Hang in there! You are so close and a healthy baby is everything.

Yucky! I can't believe you have to go that often. Well, all your extra effort I am sure will help you have a healthy baby.
