Happy 2nd Birthday Baby Brandt!

Happy 2nd Birthday Baby Brandt!
Busy as can Be--2 Years Old!

Monday, May 10, 2010


Long day today . . . @ the doctor's office (OB)for almost 3 hours again. Brandt's heart was showing accelerations today during his non stress tests -- like THREE of them -- but it was also showing decelerations and a slower-than-normal heart rate. It was in the 110s instead of his normal 130s to 150s. So finally they just did another ultrasound, and everything appears to be fine. But they FIRMLY told me they really felt I should be in Charleston already, as they are concerned about my going into labor here, and not wanting to have to airlift Brandt to Charleston. After due consideration and a call to the cardiologist office, we still feel we should hold off going early, based on the fact I'm not showing signs of pre-term labor, the boys are still in school, and the cardiologist on call is not concerned about stabilization if I would deliver here. So, we are STAYING PUT . . . with all due respect to my wonderful OB doctors!

  1. This is just crazy-talk. I'm curious which OB practice you go to... wondering if they deal with these babies often enough to truly know what they're talking about? Who knows... You guys need to do what you feel is right and what's best for you, Brandt and the rest of your family. Good for you for not letting them coerce you into changing your mind. :)
