31 weeks 0 days – 63 days to go
You know how I keep saying I am waiting for the other shoe to drop with this pregnancy? Well it may have today.
I had my regular OB appointment scheduled today; I gained a few more lbs but BP was still normal so I felt pretty good when the midwife came in. She asked how I was doing and then went to listen to baby. I could tell it didn’t sound like it normally does… almost kloppy, like a horse who’s step was off. I listened and thought it was strange but didn’t get concerned until she kept the doppler on him and kept listening. After what felt like a lifetime she said she hears something but isn’t sure exactly what and asked if I would mind if she went to get one of the OB’s to listen. Queue the panic.
The OB came in and listened and he agreed that there was something there. It sounds like his heart keeps skipping a beat. They said it could be normal as that happens with people all the time but they want it checked out by a perinatologist just to be certain.
That appointment isn’t until Tuesday at 10… which feels like forever away.
This has been a terrible week and this was the absolute last thing I needed. I pray everything is ok and we can just move past this with no issues.
