If you have been following my pregnancy story, over the last 10 weeks I have been going to the doctor twice a week to do BPP ultrasounds to check on baby. I was sick the Thursday before and stayed home Friday. All sick I went to my weekly appointment, peanut passed all of his points in the ultrasound. The sickness took over me through the weekend, good thing Monday was a holiday. Back to work on Tuesday and another ultrasound appointment that morning. Our peanut did not pass all of his ultrasound points and they had to fit me into my OB’s schedule that morning, I was not scheduled to see her. Little did I know what was going to happen next.
My OB walked into the room and said, “Hey Lady, looks like we are going to have a baby”!
My reaction: I started laughing and said serious?! She was very serious. She said my amniotic fluid was low at about a 4 (I was at an 11 the Friday before), it dropped because my placenta was starting to age, therefore not getting the vital nutrients to peanut. It was now about 10:30am and she asked when I could be back to the hospital to get checked in to be induced; I said 3pm, she said no sooner, I said 2pm and we agreed. I WAS IN SHOCK! 8| I had to stop by work to pack up my desk and then go home to get Carl.
I only called my sister on the way home to ask her to get Arie. I felt like my emotions were in check the whole pregnancy; however, when we packed up the car and had to leave Arie home, I cried. He looked at us and knew something was up, he wouldn’t take the treat. He stuck close to me the whole weekend when I was sick, I’m sure he knew peanut was coming. I called our parents on the way to the hospital.
Let’s get ready for the roller coaster that is coming next!
