Spent a couple of hours in L&D

So this afternoon I had my usual NST at the doctors office, thankfully my dad had the day off today and was able to watch the kiddos for me:) I thought things were going smoothly when I got called back right away, and hooked up to a monitor pretty quickly (blood pressure was good etc...). Well once I was hooked up to the monitor it didn't take long for baby girl to get active. The nurse had to re-adjust the monitor a couple of times etc... and she took the reading to the doctor to see what she thought. Next thing I know the nurse comes back and says I am going down to L&D triage for monitoring but everything is okay?! Well if everything is okay why am I being sent down there? So I quickly call hubby to let him know what was going on, and I head to registration. Once I am registered (by the way the girl in registration asks why I am there and when I tell her my story she says "oh there office is getting ready to close for the day and that is why they sent you down here") I am put in a triage room, get into a gown, asked why I am there to which I reply I am no sure?! and they get me hooked up to a monitor. The nurse comes back in to check on me and says everything looks great, that I have no reason to worry. So I stay on the monitor, keep in touch with hubby through texts, and just hang out watching tv- would have been better if I could have changed the channel but I couldn't find the remote anywhere. So the nurse comes back in takes my history, looks at the monitor readings, says they look great, she isn't sure why I was sent down to them and she was going to call the doctor on call which thankfully was my regular OB:) A short time latter she comes back in, says I am good to go, I can get dressed and leave. So THANKFULLY nothing was wrong and we are all doing well aside from a little minor scare! I am home resting comfortably on the couch while the kiddos play wii:)
I hope everyone has a great weekend!!!
OH almost forgot to mention I am considered FULL Term now, I am 37 weeks today!!!!!!
