It's Monday, January 10th, and I have only 9 more days to go until they induce me to have the baby. So far his head is down so I will have him vaginally unless he breaches between now and then. Also another concern is because the fluid level is getting lower he could wrap himself around the umbilical cord, thus causing an emergency C-section. I pray that will not happen. I am very blesses I have made it this far with him. In fact, one of the nurses said she has seen 34 week old babies go home with mom the week they were born. This Wednesday they are going to estimate his weight and my fluid level. I am excited to see how much they think he weighs. I am also excited to see my fluid levels. I have been drinking sooooo much water.
Today is my first day by myself in awhile. My baby sister came and visited me all last week along with my Father and his side of the family. Then Jared came this weekend but had to leave back for work yesterday. We made a 3d puzzle my Aunt Kathy got us this weekend, it was pretty fun. Other than that just layed around and watched movies. So today is quiet. But nice quiet. Well hopefully I will be positing a five pound baby on Wednesday from the ultrasound. That would be amazing.
Ok, so I have been horrible at posting, but I am going to get much better. The clock is ticking and I need to let you all know how we are doing and when he is born! I received my ultrasound last Wednesday and my fluid levels were back up to a 10. They think his head is plugging the leak because he is so far down. Whatever we are doing a 10 is amazing. In fact, women who are not even ruptured have fluid levels there. They didn't measure him this last ultrasound, but the time before he was estimated to be 4lbs 3 ounces....so this coming Wednesday they will measure him again. They are also going to give me another shot to help his lungs mature on Wednesday....Wow! Wednesday is going to be a big day for us.
But even BIGGER, Wednesday January 19th....that is the day they will induce labor and my little one will be born!!!!! That is...if he hasn't came already. I feel confident that we will make it to the 19th. They have been monitoring me every 4 hours and he is going really well. Happy as can be in Mommy's tummy. The reason they are inducing me on the 19th is that the risk of infection outweighs the risk of having premature problems. So 34 weeks is as far as they will let me go.
I have some pictures to share of all my adventures here at the hospital and am so excited I have made it this far. All my Family and Friends has been so supportive, I couldn't have stayed sane with out them...XOXO
