So after a day and a half of decreased fetal movements, I called the doctors office. They said the fact that I was feeling any movement was a good sign and were pretty confident that the babies had just shifted to face each other or face my back. At any rate, they would feel better if I came in for an NST. So I did. Both babies were just fine with heartbeats around 135 and 140ish. What I didn't expect to see was some contractions on the strip. The doctor was not concerned with them and the nurse described them as very mild contractions or simply uterine irritability. I didn't even feel most of them...with the exception of 2 of them which were slightly uncomfortable. I was sent home with the instructions to "take it easy, drink more water, and stay indoors." She also told me to call back immediately if the contractions became painful or more frequent so I can be hooked up to the monitor again.
Fortunately I am working from home today so I am taking full advantage of "Bed office" in which I lay in bed with my phone on my belly and my laptop on my legs. In 2 more weeks I'll be starting to work from home for 2 days a week. I am really hoping that this will allow me to continue to work until the end of this pregnancy. I've done the math and if I can keep these babies in and keep working until 36 weeks and 4 days I'll be able to stay off right through the holidays and come back to work in January (which would be AWESOME!). Holy crap...that's only 55 days!!!
