Apparently I did not learn a life lesson from this post. Note that it was written on 12/21 and Chiron was born 12/23.
My putting into writing that she had had no more decels and just some slightly extended variances may have been a bad idea. I'm not really very superstitious by nature, but both L&D and the NICU kinda make me so.
So, can you guess what happened between the last post and now? More variances plus a couple decels. They were V's, not W's, which I'm reassured is very good and she recovered on her own each time and is still achieving accelerations and the like, but NOT what we are looking for. She got down to about 90 from 150 or 160 and then recovered back to 150 or 160 over a couple minute period on one of them and I didn't get the specific numbers on any others.
Her line does look crazy compared to her sister's.
Nothing has changed, just the clock to feel confident that her positioning has resolved itself and she is not at risk has reset. Nothing to be alarmed about. Nothing to overreact to, but seriously? Just STOP doing that, little miss lefty.
I am finding it much harder to actually work while monitoring, so I'm going to celebrate the positive side and declare this an opportunity to nearly guilt-free work on getting caught up on my blog reading!
Thank you all for keeping track of us and sharing your thoughts and jokes and experiences. Really does mean the world.
Oh, and Tanika, the uterus of bitching is totally behaving, so I think we may need to get a nickname for little miss attention magnet...
