@moose, that is so scary! I’m glad she is home now.
Late to this, but I'm so sorry Moose you are such a great mom and advocate for E already. That's so much to go through.
Another NST today, they scared me a little bit saying her heartrate dropped a few times so they sent me to get an ultrasound to check her fluid levels and watch her heart rhythm for a little bit.
The sonographer was a lot more reassuring, telling me this happens a lot and something as simple as a sensor pressing too hard can cause rhythm to drop. He did the scan, she kicked at the wand a few times which he said was good, fluid levels look good and her heart rhythm was normal.
So everything is good, "better safe than sorry" they told me. Which I agree with, of course, but man that 20 minutes or so waiting for the sonographer just stressful.
Hopefully this doesn't happen again next week!
@moose just catching up; my Jeff Goldblum that’s a lot. No idea what to say but that I’m sorry things have been scary and much love to you. It sounds like you did all the right things taking kiddo in and being diligent.
I just caught up on this thread, I didn't realize everything that happened moose. That's so much to handle but I'm so glad it wasn't anything more serious.
I have my GD test later this morning. Yay.
Good luck @megatron!
Good luck Mega! May there be a delicious pastry in your future.
Hope you passed with flying colors!
I survived! Then I ate McDonalds because it was right there and I was starving. And then got Starbucks chai tea latte because why not. Hopefully I pass lol.
Here’s to the last trimester! 28 weeks today.
I know I say this every time but whoa, how is it already the last trimester?! I feel like everyone’s pregnancy flies by.
Always. Every one but your own.
Yes, 12 weeks to go (maybe longer because I was induced at 41 weeks last time). Seems like forever to me lol.
I hope you passed!
@megatron i can’t wait to see your little nugget
I had blood drawn for NIPT last week but for some reason they think I was 6w5d when I was 10w1d so they didn’t test it. And I had an ultrasound that day and wasn’t measuring behind or anything. I left messages for my doctor and for the testing company.
@fantasynerd which company is it
@fantasynerd I can tell you with the issues I had with NIPT, the company could tell me 0 things. It was most useful to talk to the company rep associated with my OB practice (and mostly @whatchyagonnado).
@moose Thanks, good to know. I called my OB first but the receptionist seemed to think I should call Natera too.
Ugh how very Natera of them. Unfortunately someone probably sloppily wrote your EDD on the form or messed up a key for the online req. The acquisition team *should* have just called and asked the office to confirm your due date. You probably just have to get a new draw because they don’t usually hold samples they think are invalid (I’m assuming you got a “no result” result?) Very annoying! They won’t charge fir testing not performed (they can’t) so I would probably just go ahead and get a new draw vs investigating as that will likely be quicker.
@whatchyagonnado Yes, it’s all “test not performed,” “no result.” That’s all good info to have, thank you!
Ugh Natera. They did my NIPT and were a pain to deal with when their bills finally came and there were issues. My first test didn’t have enough fetal DNA so I had retest. I was only charged for one test.
Thank you chickens for the rubber band / hair tie trick. Most of my pants are fine, but these were a little snug to begin with.
Yesterday a nurse from my OB office called Natera and they said someone put in the wrong due date for me and all she needed to do was fix it (which she did) and they’ll have my results today or Monday, so we’ll see
