Off to the hospital I go...

Now I'm just confused.
Yesterday, the tech made it sound like everything was GREAT and Elliot was fine and my levels were better. But today, my OB office called me back and told me the complete opposite.
Apparently, my fluid is still low- she didn't say HOW low, but they're "very concerned". So I need to be checked into the hospital for a nonstress test and monitoring.
After the nonstress test, they'll talk to my doctors in Grand Rapids and decide what to do- whether delivery is neccessary/imminent or not.
I'm trying to be optimistic but... I just don't know what to think now. I'm having flashbacks to my very first ultrasound, when they told me everything was fine, and then the next day they called us in and we found out about Elliot's condition.
Please keep praying!!


  1. ugh :( so thinking of you!

    is the place where you got he fluids done not your ob? i had this problem. i went to a high risk u/s place and they have their own ob's there and then forward my results to my ob and alot of times they won't get them until the next day. sounds like your case :( please keep us posted! we'll be thinking of you! you know what they say about full moons but hopefully that is not the case for you! lil elliot needs to bake a little longer! <3
