I went in for my first non-stress test today. The baby's heart rate is high, in the 170's so they are going to have me kick counting several times a day. If she does not move enough then I have to go straight to the hospital. I also tested positive for sugar in my urine. They said they were not going to worry too much about it unless it continues to go up and at that point they will do an amniocentesis to check for jaundice. They said I was 31 weeks and 5 days which is further than we thought but each doctor seems to have a different opinion as to how far along I am. I go in to the perinatologist on Friday for another non-stress test and another ultrasound to check the progression of the anemia. If the anemia has progressed above the critical line then I am headed to Banner Desert for a pubs or an in utero blood transfusion. If something goes wrong then they will take her emergency C-Section there at Banner Desert. The only catch is that my OB's do not deliver there so it would be the perinatologist that would deliver her. I actually would prefer that though. So 3 days from now we will know more.
