I went in for my weekly non stress test this morning. I normally lay there without incident, the babies are fine and I go home. Well today -- the babies were great BUT my tired uterus was contracting fairly often. For a while every 2 minutes then it settled back to every 6-7 minutes. They were not strong contractions so they sent me home to rest and drink plenty of fluids. If the contractions get stronger and/or remain frequent I am to call but it may mean nothing so noone seemed too worried. At my last doctors appointment my uterus measured 43 weeks which in the land of singleton gestators (is that a word?) would make me the size of a 3 week overdue momma -- so it's no suprise that my uterus is spent. I mean enough is enough right !!!
As luck would have it -- we are in the midst of a streak of spring like days and where am I ??? Laying here on the internet. But it is all for a good cause and I have nothing to complain about if this is the worst that has happened so far this pregnancy. Besides -- I have not been instructed to be on "strict bedrest" just take it easy. I just want to keep them in for at least 1 more week if possible so here I will lie.
