Still cookin!

I am 31+3 today and have a week full of appointments. Today I had a bloodwork appt and picked up my jug for my third 24-hour urine sample (ew). On Thursday I have my weekly obgyn appt, and on Friday I have another ultrasound to see if baby has grown well. He was in the 30th percentile about a month ago, and then two weeks ago he was in the 15th, measuring almost 3lbs. The perinatologist was concerned that perhaps my placenta hasn't been as optimal as it should be, so I have scans every two weeks. My obgyn isn't concerned, really. We will see what he measures then!

Great job ladies! As my tactless BFF always tells me, "CLENCH!" :P Good luck!

Hi Ladies, I thought I'd wait to post until my doc appt yesterday.  I am 30w3d today!  Excited to be in the 30s!!  My appt went well - my cervix is still measuring at 3cm which is no change from two weeks ago.  Baby boy is measuring good - he's about a week bigger than expected-but I'm used to that since my kids are born ready for kindergarten!  :)  A big baby is fine with me at this point - and since I know I will be hanging a c-section - it's no issue.  Otherwise - I'm hoping to make it to the 36 mark - and get off bedrest!  The end is in sight! 

Congrats to Laura!  What a cutie!!

Keep cookin' ladies!  Yeah for all of us!

Sorry I'm late in posting...

Still here at 38+1 wks!  Having 2 appts a week now...one NST and one BPP.  I'm 5cm dilated and 75% effaced.  Amniotic fluid was low at 5.02 last week but won't induce unless they can't find a 2x2 pocket, which they did.
I will be induced next week, if I don't go earlier.  It has been wonderful to be off bedrest these last 2 weeks...now I'm ready for his appearance!

Good luck to everyone and stay on bedrest...it works!

Mccoygirl--Good luck on friday and congrats!!

I posted Monday, but wanted to update. CL was much shorter today so I'm getting the steroids. Fingers crossed I can make it to 32 weeks! It's been a long ride (almost 8 weeks bedrest so far) but I'm not ready for it to be over yet.
