congrats Lori

Thanks for the congrats...

I was 38 weeks exactly when I delivered

After much craziness, our son Joshua was born on 4-16. I went straight from my u/s and drs visit to the hospital. they admitted me right away because my fluid was way down to 3.3. I was put on an IV overnight to try and increase my fluids but it was not enough, so I had a c-section the next morning.

Joshua weighed 6lb 15 oz and was 20 inches long. He is healthy and we are greatful that we made the decision to have him.  I truly believe he was in danger.

Thanks for all of the support and I will check in again soon.

Well, I couldnt post on Monday because I was in the hospital

Our son was born on Saturday 4/16
Joshua William
6lb 15 oz
20 inches long

I was admitted after my dr appt on Friday. My fluid level dropped to 3.3. Joshua is healthy and had no problems at all after birth. We just got home 2 days ago so I am wiped out.

Thank you all for your encouragement and support.

Congrats Sara

Thanks for all the support. I am leaning more towards starting now rather than waiting.

Hi there, I am 37 weeks now.  I am able to do some more things now. I have 2 NSTs this week and also another fluid check. My c section is in 2 weeks :-)

thx for the support. I did talk to my dr today about my depression. she gave me a prescpription and I am still trying to figure out if I want to take it or not. She suggested that I start taking it now so I dont have to climb out of a whole later.

Thanks for reading

Hi, I am 36 weeks. I have 2 appts this week. 2 NSTs and a fluid check and I also see my dr. I will be going twice a week for NSTs now.

I am so uncomfortable and sick of bedrest. I will prob be on bedrest until I have the baby since I have low fluid levels.

Well I thought I could handle it and I thought it would all get better but I don't think I can. It's all too much. I'm not even that excited about the baby coming. I think I may need to talk to my dr about it. I wanted to avoid taking meds again, but I may have to. I had post partum with my first child and bouts of depression before that so I know that I am predisposed to have it happen again.

Anyone else where I am?

Hello, I am 35 weeks 2 days. I had another u/s today to check weight and fluid and both were good so that is a relief. I go back on Friday for a recheck. So is full term 37 weeks or 38

Well, my fluid level was up to 8 today so thats good. They checked me to see if I was leaking fluid and I'm not so that is good too. I go back on Monday for another Non stress test and I think another fluid check.

Congrats on twins. Would your dr do another check if you asked for it? I had to ask my dr to check my cervical length and to keep checking it. It wasnt something she normally did either. She agreed.  Maybe let the dr know that the dr know that you would be more comfortable if they continued to check it.
