Baby C Scare/
Baby C's heart rate took a dive last night during monitoring. About ten doctors and nurses poured into the room and went to work. Sarah was repositioned, hooked up to an IV, and put on oxygen. Two hours later, everyone calmed down. Baby C was back within her safety zone for stress.
The medicine to stop contractions that Sarah is taking can cause the fluid around the babies to shrink. While all of the babies have acceptable fluid amounts, Baby C has the least amount. The nurses are wondering if there is a kink in her cord that could be causing the heart rate deceleration. On Wednesday, Sarah will have biophysicals and full sonograms ( at least 40 minutes per quad) for all four babies. It will be exhausting and hard on Sarah. Please pray that all will be normal.
I lay down and slept,
Yet I woke up in safety,
For the Lord was watching over me.
