What She Wore: White, Grecian-style top; purple A-line skirt; black strappy sandals. My camera cord has arrived, so hopefully I’ll be getting up some shoe pictures some time soon.
I’ll try to be brief since I should be in bed.
Now that I’m in my third trimester, I’ve started counting kicks. Basically, you see how long it takes to feel ten fetal movements in an hour.
For the past two days I noticed a sharp decline in the number and strength of the movements. By this afternoon I was in a panic. I called and spoke with the nurse who told me to eat a snack and lie on my side. I did this and got some movement, but then it stopped again. I hung out, played Spider on the computer, ate dinner, watched TV, and I was still feeling very little movement. I’d gotten about ten kicks in three hours. Finally, at eight o’clock I headed over to Labor and Delivery to get a Non-Stress test.
I was seen promptly and baby has a good strong heart beat. He passed the non-stress test as well, so I’m a pretty happy lady.
And now. . . I’m off to bed.
