Re: A little upset after this mornings appt

LOL I haven't ever had a big baby belly!! I get it everywhere else. I'm surprised my behind can fit through a doorway lol! Anyhow, we're getting there!!! What is your exact due date? Mine is Oct. 28!!! I CANNOT believe that it's September already. I'm just praying that the doc is right and that she ...

Re: Question about inducing early

As far as the membrane stripping goes--I have had a few friends who had it done--said it was painful--and didn't really seem to work!! All my labs etc have been so good, so right now we're in it for the long haul!! Which is good on one hand, but I'm semi terrified that if/when I go into labor natura...

Re: A little upset after this mornings appt

Wow! 7 something at 36+2 is good! See, all this makes me feel better! After one experience with IUGR, I'd really rather not do it again lol..but then I did have severe pre eclampsia--and none of that now! I'm just hoping that the U/S looks good! My doctor doesn't seem nervous at all and quite honest...

Re: Question about inducing early

My dr. hasn't really said anything about inducing. I actually did pretty well with the first baby. They broke my water at 5:30 am, contractions were ok, but I stopped at 5cm, gave me Pitocin starting at like 7, baby was born at 10:11, so I have no horror stories about the induction. I have an appoin...

Question about inducing early

Ok ladies. Question here. So my daughter was born at 32 weeks due to severe pre e, possible HELLP. She had IUGR, spent 5 weeks in the NICU. Tomorrow marks 33 weeks for me. As relieved as a I feel, I am nervous because I don't know what to expect. My pre eclampsia seemed to be pretty quick to go from...

Re: absolutely terrified of trying again

I'm so sorry for your loss. My story is not anywhere near as horrible or as severe as yours. In short, my daughter was born at 32 weeks due to me having severe pre eclampsia, possible HELLP syndrome. She was IUGR (weighed in at 2lb 7 oz). I had been begging with doctors to figure out what was wrong ...

Re: 3rd Time Paranoid

See, I understand where you're coming from with the thinking about you not wanting to complain because you didn't have a terrible experience, but coming from a mom of a 32 weeker (they considered her a micro preemie because she was IUGR at 2lb 7oz and our hospital considered anything under 3lbs a mi...
