The baby decided to scare everyone, even the doctor today. I had my ob visit and an NST. His heart rate strip was flat- 146-150 and it should have had several bigger variations. So I ended up with a biophysical profile. He passed, but the fluid level has decreased around him. I go back again Friday and they will do size and another biophysical profile. If the fluid is low again we may end up delivering via emergancy induction/c-section. I plan to increase my fluid intake for a few days and see if it helps any.
I lost another 4lbs of the fluid I was retaining which until the NST and ultrasound sounded like a wonderful thing but now I wonder. My blood pressure was good as well which goes to show that losing the fluid is helping me. Problem is it may be causing problems for the baby.
