We had our amnio on Tuesday and the number didn't come back high enough, since my protein was okay and my b/p was stable they thought it would be best to wait another week, but I guess the baby had other plans :) the next morning I went into labor, we went to the doctors office and my b/p was up 148/102 and my urine dip test was showing high as well, they just let me continue in labor, Jacob was born last night at 36 weeks and 4 days, had no breathing problems, and a very healthy weight 8 pounds 12 oz. I a grateful my husband made me go back to the doctors the next day for cramping, It's such a huge blessing to have this little man in our lives, I feel so extremely blessed! I am praying for all of you to have healthy and safe pregnancy's!

Congratulations! I am so glad everything looks so good for both of you though sorry you had some drama in the end!

I wonder if it was the amnio that 'helped' your labor get going...my water broke the night after my amnio (his lungs were fine and my c-section was actually scheduled for in a few hours anyway.)
