Non-Stress Test. Baby's heart rate was 144 and my contractions were at a 49 (in this picture)
While i was getting my NST, my mom sent me this picture of Pax. Man i miss him :(
After that appt, we went to Utah Valley to get my Betamethsone shot. They check me in at Labor and Delivery. Get me a room. Make me put on the gown and tell me that ill be there a couple of hours. Marc and i looked at each other like, what the heck, i thought i was just getting a shot. Well, i had to get some extra monitoring time. So we did just that. My BP was 145/87 and my pulse rate was 127. Then an hour later they checked it and it went down to 126/78 and pulse rate was 110. So after that blood pressure and more monitoring for the Non-Stress Test, i was finally able to get the shot. HOLY COW, it is by far the worst shot i've ever had in my life. The needle was bigger and the serum was super thick. I could feel it going in my left hip but i couldn't feel it spreading. It was such a weird feeling. It hurts. I did my best to rub it around to relieve some of the pain but just touching it was tender. And here i am 4 hours later and it still hurts. OY VEY. Im dreading going back to get the 2nd shot tomorrow :( So ya, after the shot and the nurse calling and clearing it with my dr, i was able to go! When we got home, we had probably 8 inches of snow in our yard! Crazy. But ya, that was our day. Gone from 9am-5:30ish. It feels so good to be home!
Showing my 31 week and 5 day belly and then below me all hooked up!
The weird smile was because we were going to send it to my mom and tell her we were going into labor... then we thought, thats not something to joke about at this point! So we passed that up and now i'm stuck with these weird facial expression pictures! ha. Oh well.
Here is my 31 Week Picture
