Yep, you guessed it

Another uneventful OB appointment - the very best kind!

Main Entry: uneventful
Part of Speech: adjective
Definition: monotonous, dull
Synonyms: boring, common, commonplace, humdrum, inconclusive, indecisive, ordinary, prosaic, quiet, routine, tedious, unexceptional, unexciting, unfateful, uninteresting, unmemorable, unnoteworthy, unremarkable, unvaried

I thought we were going every week now, but that doesn't happen until 36 weeks, so our next OB appointment is March 20th.

Dr. E informed me of a new monitoring system being used at ANW: the STAN S31 fetal heart monitoring system. Apparently this is widey used in Sweden. I googled it already and am kind of excited that she's embraced this technology. She said that ANW is one of four hospitals in the nation using this right now. Dr. E said that it's amazing how a newer technology with bells and whistles isn't being used when it is finally available. I think it will be a good thing for someone like me attempting a VBAC and knowing exactly how baby is responding. Hanne & Tommy, you'll have to let me know if you've heard of this?

Hi Julie, bothing is better that uneventful OB's! I liked your description of the event, though :-)

The STAN technology sounds great, we (at least I, Tommy, Hanne is in Røros, back tonight) embrace it as much as DR. E. I google'd some norwegian pages, and it seems STAN is used at several hospitals in Norway. I will e-mail our Dr. at the hospital here in Trondheim to learn more about it. Exciting! Have a wonderful sunday. Hugs Ti Kei :)
