Re: Soleil Eloise has arrived!

This is such wonderful news! Kudos on such a beautiful milestone of womanhood :) I too have my news! I had a completely uneventful and blessed delivery with our son, born Thursday 02/17; 4 days before he was due. He is doing very well and nursing like a champ. Wishes and hugs to your little girl Sol...

Re: I've been admitted to the hospital

Hi there, You are in a tough situation. Our thoughts are with you. I had low normal AFI off and on and a midwife in our practice recommended "hydrotherapy", big term only to say "soak in the home tub for about 20-30 mts". Do you think you could request some time to try that? It definitely worked for...

Re: can't believe i am actually saying this

So nice to see your immediate response. Yes, I too am not worried about the wait but the doctors are insistent that because of prior pre-e and my autoimmune hypothyroidism, they cannot let me wait past 40wks. That is a bit disconcerting since I really wanted this to go the natural route (especially ...

Re: can't believe i am actually saying this

Lizard, I am scheduled for induction on 21st (40 wks). No sign of labor yet. How are you? It is not so much that I am tired of the wait but rather that I am anxious about what contractions will feel like or what induction will mean etc. I sure hope my boy comes before I am induced...Let me know how ...

Re: 29 week appt, a little bummed

Easing up on work; Taking deep relaxing breaths and Drinking Plenty of Fluids would definitely help.
I too had bumps along the road with low fluid, rising BP etc. and I did my best to drink a lot, and eased out on work.
Definitely doable. keep at it. Kudos

Re: can't believe i am actually saying this

Lizard, Its me! I too am feeling exactly what you are! I am 39 weeks this coming Monday. I too am scheduled for induction the week after (at 40 wks). I too cannot believe that I have reached this far and that I am hoping my little boy would would come before he is asked to move out! What an anticlim...

Re: I'm pregnant!

Firstly, congrats on your pregnancy.. I had gone through an overwhelmingly difficult time with my first pregnancy and postpartum and after a carefully planned 5yr delay, I was expecting and now full-term! So, the truth is that these overwhelming emotions are real and very much experienced by many ot...

Re: yeah! I love good news!

Oh my Lizard! Yes, I have some of the same thoughts...I too had not really "enjoyed" this pregnancy; had been anxious silently. Mine is a boy and yours is a girl - that seems to be the only difference. I too have weekly NSTs going forward, mostly to reassure us I think. Keep up your fluid intake and...

Re: Disconnected from pregnancy? Am I alone?

You are absolutely not alone! I had PE in my first pregnancy with lot of difficult emotions and little family support. I hadnt thought about another pregnancy until almost 5years now.. but as I started seeing my daughter need a sibling, I brought some courage on and am pregnant now 35weeks. To tell ...
