The latest

Hi Everyone,

Well the adventure continues. I was admitted to the hospital again. This time with low amniotic fluid, which I guess means the circulation to the placenta is not good due to my BP. So they admitted me for monitoring...talked about delivery...and keeping me in for monitoring for the rest of the pregnancy (which they didn't make sound like very long)...and then they decided that the baby and I looked good enough to go home (my labs were ok and the fluid level went from 8 to 10). They are going to do an US every Monday and NST every Thursday and if I don't feel the baby moving I should call them (not very comforting.)

Anyway I'm back home. I've had it. I feel like I've weathered everything to this point pretty well. I've stayed positive and kept a sense of humor, but now I've had enough. I had my self all mentally prepared to have the C-section have a small, but what I'm hoping is healthy baby, etc. When they said you can go home I was scared and disappointed. I don't know if that makes sense or not but that's how I felt.

So anyway that's the update from here. I'm just getting tired of the roller coaster. Did anyone else have this low amniotic fluid issue? How long did you go after it was discovered? Any other things you learned while going through this that I should know about?
