After that he moved on to checking the heartbeat. After what seemed like a lifetime, he told me that he was concerned as it was around 181 bpm...a whole lot higher than what it should be. I freaked right out. He told me after the appointment to head right over to Labour and Delivery to be monitored and have a non stress test.
I headed over with Clint right away and we waited for a room which never happened. They ended up placing me on a bed in the corner of their waiting room with just a curtain pulled. I was offered something to drink and told to relax. Clint was beyond nervous and couldn't take his eyes off the monitor watching how fast baby's heartbeat was. After about 15 minutes, the nicest nurse in the world came over to check on me and let us know that all seemed fine from this point. Brianna was most probably just being active and moving around when he took the heartbeat...makes sense, I felt so much movement while laying there after his painful pushing on the belly. We got to leave after 30 minutes knowing everything was fine, such a relief! I was not ready to have a baby that day, and so glad I didn't have to. :)
