fetal heart rate
lesant777 posted:
So this is my fourth baby and I thought I had heard it all. I went in for monitoring at 34 weeks just for gestational diabetes and they could not find any acceleration in the baby's heart rate. They did an ultrasound and she was moving and her heart rate was in the normal range but they were concerned still that there was no acceleration. They said my high risk doctor would be calling me this afternoon to let me know what I was gonna be diong next but I didnt hear back from him. Does anyone know what that means? Or why they look for that when everything looks great?
crispy_critty responded:
It could mean the baby could be in distress, or could have something wrong with the heart. They're just going to triple check to make sure nothing like that is wrong. I'm sure if the baby is moving around just fine and they were able to find the heartbeat that it should be fine. But it's always good to make sure. Best of luck to you and your LO!

I hope that everything goes well. It is great that your doctors are being so cautious about your LO, especially with gestational diabetes. I wish you the best and will keep you in my prayers. Please keep us posted and try to stay relaxed for you and your LO. Take care!
Best Wishes! Amelia
