Friday was a pretty eventful day. I ended up taking Kamdyn to the doctor with a 2nd degree burn on his hand and then had to go to the doctor myself to check on this little fighter I have in me. My doctor wants to do a NST on me to check on baby. What they are looking for is find babys rate base which was 150-160 so the thing they want to happen is her rate to jump 15 and stay that was for 15 sec or more. Thats shows a happy and stress free baby. After 10 minutes of trying her rate wouldnt increase where they wanted so they told me they were going to shock her. Scared the crap out of me! She pulled out this little device and showed me on my arm that it didnt hurt at all. In fact I didnt feel anything at all really. Maybe a little vibration. It made a loud sound though. So then she put it toward the end of my stomach and WOW! Baby girl jumped like crazy! I felt like she was going to come out my throat!! It worked though. Her heart rate went up to 182. They shocked her just before 4pm and that girl didnt stop moving til after 8pm! She wanted to make sure she didnt get shocked again so dodnt stop moving at all. At that point my contractions were about 3 minutes apart so the doc checked me. I was actually shocked when he said I was already 60% effaced. He said even though I was only dilated to a 2 my cervix was extremely soft. Im not expecting anything from it. I would LOVE going into labor on my own this time with her being my last. I have never experienced but like the other 3 Im sure that wont happen. My body doesnt do well with pain so its not until I get the epidural my body will allow itself to go into full blown labor. So Im sure the next month will be full of contractions and bad pain but it wont be until they hook me up to pitocin and an epidural that she will really come. Only time will tell I guess.
