My Journey

From mind to paper and back again.

A Quick Update

on September 16, 2012

So I went to the hospital again today.  We got there early (Andrew came with me) at around 1pm and went straight onto the ward.  Is it worrying that the midwife on duty today recognised me straight away?

We went in, I had my blood pressure taken and was hooked up to the CTG machine that monitors baby’s heart rate near enough straight away.  He is still head down, bum up which is good to know.  They were slightly concerned that the baby’s heart beat was elevated but the midwife realised that his heart rate was elevated at the same time that I was getting Braxton Hicks so after a quick chat with the duty doctor they decided that it was probably due to that. 

They also took a full blood work up so I now have three holes running down the same vein in my arm as it seems to have been the only place that they have managed to find the vein.  Hopefully by the time I go back tomorrow for my scans there will be a full set of results waiting for the consultant.  I will update again tomorrow after that as I am hoping to have some more definite information off the consultant.

I hope everyone has had a good weekend x
