Had My First Non-Stress Test Today

I spent almost 1 1/2 hours at the NST yesterday morning. They wanted to get a good baseline resting heartrate and little miss baby 6 would not be still. I really can’t complain about being there that long though. The room I was in had an awesome view of the Newport Beach Harbor. I jokingly asked the nurse how I could get signed up to come in more often. It was really very relaxing sitting there looking out at the ocean.

The nurse said normally they only need to monitor you for 15 mintus or so. I do feel bad about my in-laws being stuck with the boys for so long though. They are watching them again Friday when I go for my next NST. Hopefully it won’t take so long on Friday.

They also did a check on the amniotic fluid. Mine was right at 8.5 cm, which is the minimum they like to see. I was ordered to drink 3 liters of water a day and they will recheck it on Friday.
