- Thursday, 21 Jan Janet, sounds like they will be doing a FST ( fetal stress test). I get them once a week at my GYNE office but it sounds like they will just have you do it at the hospital. Maybe they want to peek at the baby and the hospital always has a better ultrasound machine. No worries. I would much rather my tests be run at the hospital then in my doc's crowded, small office. :) Say a prayer before you head in there for the little boy you lost and ya never know, maybe being there will bring you great comfort! Good luck mama and keep us informed. lgk616
- Wednesday, 20 Jan I had a check up every month until my last month when I started going every 2 days. These check ups are nothing. The monitor attached to you is to check for contractions and if you are having them at what intensity. You will also hear the baby's heartbeat with this monitor. If you have an internal, well, it can be uncomfortable but he will want to check your cervix. If you have an u/s - that will be cool because you will see the baby! He will do measurements and check the baby's blood flow. Don't be paranoid - enjoy the check up and your chance to see your baby if you are having an u/s! If not - enjoy the heartbeat sound - nothing like it! xox Cherryb0m
- Wednesday, 20 Jan With my last pregnancy i was not "hig risk" but i was a little "higher risk than normal", so for the last month of my pregnancy I went in twice a week to have a non-stress test done (just monitored me for contractions the baby's heart rate and to make sure she was moving around like she should) and once a week i had an unltrasound to make sure everything was good. I can understand your worry, but this pregnancy is going great!! I'm sure this is just standard procedure for your Dr. He just wants to make sure everything is OK, but that doesnt mean there is anything wrong. :-) Good luck hun, i'm sure everything is going to be fine :-) DiandClover
- Wednesday, 20 Jan I spent the last three months of my pregnancy with Sebastian in the hospital 'high risk' - I understand your worry, but I think much of what you are feeling is anxiety tied to your loss, and the fact you have not been back there since the birth of your son. This pregnancy is going so smoothly, don't let yourself think that your luck can't keep going so well - it can hun, so believe it! Perhaps to get over the anxiety of returning to the hospital - go there before your Dr. appt. with your husband. Let out your grief over your past loss, and open yourself up to the fact that your next delivery here will be a beautiful one, and you will be bringing home a beautiful, healthy baby SOON! as far as what the appointments will consist of - they will perhaps do a non-stress test, just to monitor you for contractions while listening to the baby's heart for 20 minutes. They will measure your belly and take your weight, blood pressure, etc. Some doctors may check your cervix, while others will avoid checking until you are 36 weeks.
