Let It Be (Updated)

Gabe is by far the most active baby I've had. He is strong and constantly in motion. On Monday night he just wouldn't do anything. I drank sugary stuff, ate, laid down, all the tricks I knew and hardly got any response. I did feel a few tiny movements so I just went to bed and hoped when I woke up yesterday that things would be better. They weren't. I tried all of the tricks again and still got pretty much nothing. I called my OBs office and they had me come in for a biophysical profile. It's a test done by sono to see how a baby is doing. He did well on that. But during it the sono tech kept zeroing in on his heart. Then she pulled up all of my old sonos and was looking at them. Then she asked if the baby had ever had an irregular heartbeat before. I said no. Keep in mind this is sono number 10 I think for this pregnancy. She keeps going back to his heart and the irregularity continues. Unfortunately my OB is in surgery all day and so I have to deal with the on call who I have very little faith in. They send me home and tell me to "try not to worry, this can be totally normal." i just wish if it could be normal that she wouldn't have said anything to me about it. The thing that bothers me is that I went in because something had changed with Gabe and indeed there was something different that had never been that way before. If it was a routine sono and they had found it then it would probably bother me less. Anyway, I will be following up with my OB today. Luckily, Gabe is back to his active self so maybe his rhythm is back to normal. Please let it be...BlogBooster-The most productive way for mobile blogging.

After much waiting around for a return phone call I was finally able to speak to the nurse who said the OB is not concerned about it. Good news! One thing to mark off the list of crap to be concerned about!!


  1. Oh, I pray that all goes well for you today & that your OB gives you a good report...

  2. I'm so glad that you got your good news...waiting around is the worst part, for sure!
