Sleep Study Results

Amidst all the chaos of the new baby coming, I almost forgot to update everyone on the results of Sweet Pea's sleep study (Thanks Life with My Special K's) that we did on January 7th.  Since we had to postpone our ENT appointment (it was supposed to be in 4 hours, but seeing as I'm in a hospital bed waiting to give birth...) until mid February and I didn't want to wait to get the results so I asked for the doctor to call.  I got a call yesterday from him and he said that there is no obstructive apnea, that her oxygen levels were good all night and she held her breath once for 9 seconds.  That was it!  There is nothing wrong with her, she is just a true restless sleeper.  It was music to our ears to hear that there was no underlying cause of her restlessness.  We hear her hitting the wall numerous times each night and so it will be comforting to not worry now!

Ok, that is all for now.  I'm sitting in the hospital with the pitocin trying to do it's thing.  Hoping to have some big news to announce today, but at this rate I'm not so sure.

  3. So glad you got the results before the new baby came! Atleast when you have time to sleep at night between the baby's feedings you won't have to be worried about Sweet Pea :-)
