I'm ready for the RollerCoaster to end!!

Just when I let my guard down, in anticipation of an "easy" appointment, this baby has another idea in mind. We had our 2nd NonStress Test today and wouldn't ya know, she had a major heart deceleration. It happened right as Lois was trying to get her baseline heart rate on the monitor could it have been a glitch? Seems logical to me, but I guess not to them. And rather than nipping this in the bud today, I get to wait yet another day ...with nothing to do but worry ...for another Nonstress Test tomorrow. They're also going to measure the amniotic fluid via ultrasound. Again, WHY COULDN'T THEY DO THAT TODAY?!

I love how they tell ya, "oh, try not to worry." What the hell else am I left to do? And given our good ultrasound of last week, how on earth could we have lost that much amniotic fluid in a week ...couldn't they at least explain that to me before I left? Honestly, I know we're in good hands, but it's times like this that I really hate Dr's and Specialists and how freakin' secretive they can be. When you leave a patient to speculate like this, all you do in compound their stress.

Well, I guess that's all I have to say about it at the moment. I pray this next day comes soon; I'm reaching all new levels of anxiety....
