DS has ruined me too. I read a short time ago about an insulin dependent mama having a tragic outcome at 38 weeks, so now I'm extra nervous.

She did finally start moving enough that I could get 10 an hour. It took lots of poking and prodding. Even having her two year old brother knee me in the tummy didn't get much reaction.

I'm starting to wonder if my prodromal labor is starting to do a bit more than just make me uncomfortable. It would explain my general keep.your.freaking.hands.off.me attitude and my back pain too.

Go for an NST. Make sure it is done properly and not with prodding or shaking the baby being counted. I know I'm the one who posted that bit and freaked you out. NST and BPP like now! It's a million, even trillion times better to go get checked out. What you are describing could be just fine, or it could be exactly what my friend was describing in the days leading up to what she experienced.

Hugs and go get checked!

The most reassuring thing will be to know baby is fine!

I called and left a message. My dr isn't in the office today, so the on call will get back to me.

Re: Please just reassure me

Great! If you don't hear anything back, go to the hospital for the proper tests. My friend waited until her regularly-scheduled appointment.

My friend had some great words for you, lovingly, of course. Ultimately, good or bad, it's up to God. However, she also said to be PROACTIVE. To the point of refuse to leave if they don't do proper testing. They were poking, prodding, shaking her baby to get him to move and counting THAT on the NST. Not cool at all. Get the tests you need to reassure yourself that everything is okay, and make sure they are done properly.

The on call dr wants me to be seen at L&D. I had to wait for my husband to get here and to get child care lined up. I'll be leaving shortly.
