Location: Washington, United States

I began my TTC journey in January 2005. It finally worked with the 5th IUI and along came Eliana! I started trying for a second (T42) a little over a year later, and was thrilled to get pregnant on the second try this time. Jacob soon joined our family! Not sure if I am done at two, but come along for my journey in motherhood. If you stop by, please leave me a short note! I like to know when I have visitors. :)

NST update

So, the NST itself went well. The baby's heart was accelerating nicely when it moved and they were pretty happy. She had a few dips here and there as always, but they weren't concerned enough about those.

However, my blood pressure was high 150s/90s for the first two readings and then 140s/80s for the last two and so I have been put on modified bed rest (no work, but I am to get up and move around every now and then because I have a history of blood clots) for tomorrow. I go back to see my OB (it was just the on call OB at the NST) tomorrow to reevaluate. Hopefully, he will take me off bedrest, but if not, that is not the end of the world. I was scheduled to start mat leave next Wed, so one week won't kill me. I just hope they don't induce me earlier, a possibility the on call doctor brought up if my BP doesnt come down or my 24 hour urine I am to do tomorrow is not good...

Glad the NST went well. I hope you get released from bedrest tomorrow.
