36&1!!!!

Postby julieb » Mon Feb 11, 2013 06:39 am

Today is a huge milestone because I had my DD at 36&1 and I had been on bedrest almost 3 weeks at that point and she was delivered because she had dropped below the 10th%. Today I am not on bedrest and I am still pregnant with a baby who measured in the 50th% at my last growth ultrasound!! I have a C-section scheduled for 37&4, which is next week and I am hoping we can make it to full term this time!! I still feel like everyday something could go horribly wrong but I am trying to enjoy the last week of my pregnancy since this will be our last. I have another growth ultrasound on Thursday and if baby has not grown well we will be delivering but keeping my fingers crossed for a big healthy baby! After having my son at 28&6 I never thought that I would make it this far and I am still shocked that I am still pregnant and not on bedrest!!

Congratulations, that's so exciting! Sounds like you'll make it to full term. :)

I'm 35 weeks today (right behind you) and can't believe how small the timeframe is now—I keep thinking, even if things go begin to go south tomorrow, it'll take a few days for them to decide what to do about it and there's a good chance I'll still make it nearly to full term!

As you say, it's all so different from last time, I have trouble getting my head around it.
