So I went in for my first NST (non-stress test) and while the baby monitoring tests were fine, I was apparently having some contractions. It didn't feel like anything was happening-just a little pressure like the baby was moving, but it showed up on the graphs. They had me recline for awhile with my feet up and gave me several cups of water and everything evened out. I thought I was drinking plenty of water, but maybe not. Now I'm keeping track each day (10 cups yesterday) and I'm on "Limited Activity" until I go back next Tuesday for my doctor's appointment.

I hope she says to keep drinking water and takes me off L.A., but if I keep having contractions I might have to go on modified bed rest, which would suck. With Limited Activity I'm supposed to spend a lot of time sitting around with my feet up, but I'm also supposed to get up and move around regularly, just nothing strenuous, or stimulating, or fun, but I can still work and get some things done as long as I take breaks.

Good luck with everything. Since you didn't mention blood pressure, I'm assuming (hoping) that's normal?

Thanks. BP is fine. I'm thinking it was a temporary hydration issue, but I'll have to wait and see.
