How did my tests go on Tuesday? Glad you asked!
For those of you not in the know, we went up to Spokane Tuesday morning for my 6 month pacer check and for a fetal ultrasound on the baby to see if there are any major heart defects. (I have one, therefore, they are hyper alert for my child having one.)
My appointment went great. My pacemaker hasn’t uttered a peep in the last six months, not even to pace me (which is a good thing) and my doctor said that I’m doing well for being pregnant. He is a little concerned that I don’t have as much energy as I could have so if that doesn’t get better over the next few weeks, they may adjust my pacer settings.
Unfortunately, we got scheduled too early in my pregnancy for the fetal ultrasound. We are going back up the week after US Thanksgiving for that, with a different doctor. However, I was told that my heart doctors definitely want me to have the baby up at the hospital near them so that my team is nearby, which means a scheduled induction or C-section (they are leaning toward the latter, and to be honest, so am I). All in all, it was a good appointment, although we didn’t get to see much of the baby and not all our questions were answered. We see our perinatologist (sp?) next Tuesday and that’s when we will probably find out about bedrest, etc. So we will keep you posted.
