Back in the Hospital

Well home bed rest didn't last long.  I had an ultrasound Thursday afternoon to check the dopplers in the umbilical cord. I got to speak to the high risk doctor (Dr K) and he said the numbers looked better but still not great and that he recommended coming in for an ultrasound every other day to keep a close look to catch any problems early.

I was able to go home on Thursday but came back on Saturday morning for another ultrasound.  I'm starting to understand what it is they look for,  and I could tell the dopplers did not look good. Sure enough, Dr K came in and told me he wanted to admit me right away. Baby is still okay,  he is not in danger at this point,  but he is very close to that point.  The doctor wants him constantly monitored so if at any point he does get distressed they can intervene.

I'm getting another ultrasound sometime this morning,  and we will go from there. Bed rest is not easy,  hospital bed rest is harder,  but I'm trying to make the most of it.  I got a shower this morning and it's amazing how much better I feel. My mom flies into town this evening so I'm excited to see her!


  1. Oh mags. Sorry to hear that you and little man are not in the clear but glad that your mom is coming. Keeping you and the fam in my thoughts. xx

  2. Sorry to hear that your little boy is not being very cooperative. Hope things get better and that he stays in as long as he is supposed too.

  3. Wish I could be there with you! Will keep you in my thoughts & prayers. Love you!
