Last night was not a good night with the heartbeat monitoring, we must of set some sort of record! We started about 8:00pm and after 3 1/2 hours, 2 nurses, 3 heartbeat monitors, a resident, and an ultrasound machine later we finally finished. Needless to say I was very tired and cranky by the time it was done and on the verge of tears because it is miserably uncomfortable. I felt really bad for Steven who came to stay with me last night thinking he would go to bed at a descent time so he could get up early to drive back for work. He looked so tired but hopefully tonight he will get a good nights sleep.
Even though yesterday was a bad day for heartbeat monitoring it was a really good day for contractions, I'm not sure exactly how many I had but it was significantly less than what it has been. The doctors had to take me off the contraction drugs for now because my blood pressure dropped too much so we were very pleased that we had such a good day without drugs. Lets just hope today we can have a good day with contractions AND heartbeat monitoring!!! I think I'm going to request we start a little earlier tonight so I'm not up so late if it takes another record setting time :)
