Non-stress testing is so stressful

I started my non-stress testing today at the peri's office. It's pretty much exactly like the home monitoring I do at night, except she also does an ultrasound to look at amniotic fluid levels. I asked her to look at the cord as well (which is what I care about the most). Long story short, the nurse seems not to know her ass from her elbow. She attempted to evade my questioning with smiles and positivity. I let her off easy. This time. I feel so frustrated. Silly me. I thought I'd get more comfort from these weekly tests. I can't seem to catch a break. Or maybe my expectations of the medical community are just too high. Whatever it is, I'm so tired. 


*On a positive note, I've been feeling kinda sexy lately. Sexy at 30 and at 30 weeks. I'm trying to come up with one positive thing a day, however small. Here's mine for last week and for next: sexiness. Check me out. Bow chicka bow wow.

Rachel,
I just found your blog yesterday and read it entirely. I am so saddened and found myself so angry tht this would happen. I questioned God asking him 'why?'. I was then reminded that God's plan is perfect. And while we may not understand here in Earth, it will make perfect sense when we meet Him (& Shiloh) in Heaven. Know I am praying for you and this baby girl in your tummy. I pray you can enjoy this pregnancy, although I completely understand your 'baby steps' way of thinking. I cannot wait to open your blog in 20 weeks and see pix of your beautiful baby girl, Shiloh's little sister. Even though we have never met, I am here if there is anything I could possibly do to help, please let me know.
Love in Christ,
Michelle

How awful that the non-stress test didn't help lower your stress level. You could probably do a better job of the ultrasound yourself. Wouldn't it be great to have your own ultrasound machine just like Tom Cruise's wife?

Thank you for your comments ladies! I love reading them! Xoxo

PS. Yes, Annie- my husband and I often talk about how smart Tom Cruise was to get Katie an ultrasound machine. If only I could afford one!
