I am 36weeks 3days & I had my 6th ultrasound today (yes, I know that's a lot - but I've had some issues with my pregnancy). Anyways, today they said that everything looked great - except for the fact that my fluids are low, my blood pressure is elevated, & the cord is wrapped around his neck. Now, after all these "findings" they told me it is no need for concern & that everything was fine. However, they have also suggested I have at least 2 NSTs a week from now on, maybe even 3 just to keep an eye on things. They also want me in again next week for ANOTHER ultrasound. If everything is fine, why do they seem to want so much observation? I'm pretty worried. I know, it's normal to be worried as a first time mom...but it all just sounds so scary! Any advice?? Am I just overreacting? Should their be cause for worry, or are the doctors just being cautious??
