I had my 37 week Prenatal appointment yesterday! SQUEE! I'm almost there!!
Anyway, the point to this entry is this ...
Our Doctor did everything like normal, asked questions, measured belly, pressed around, then did the Doppler. She found my babies heart beat as usual, but it was exceptionally low compared to usual. Usually its in the 150s, but this time she was in the 120s. I immediately asked if it was normal, because its never like that. And she said yes its normal as you get closer to delivery, something about the neurons and such. As she was using the Doppler, my baby moved around and I guess that's baby exercise so her heart beat went up to 150ish again, then back down. Has this happened to you guys? Ever had your doctor tell you this? Is it normal? Help calm me down! I've been freaking out and laying around just to feel her move. Its been 12+ hours since our appointment, and I have felt her move around, but still ..
Thanks for any input you have!
