Gotcha. I really need to have a long talk with my MFM. I don't want to unnecessarily induce but like you, I don't want to take any chances carrying my son any longer than I need to.

29 weeks tomorrow, no signs of trouble so far, after delivering the first time at 23+2 and the second time 36 wks (on purpose, no pre-e). My doctors are fairly optimistic this time we can make it to 37 weeks (the farthest they are letting me go due to classical c-section). We'll see. I'm so ready for summer weather to go away!

#1-Olivia Caetlyn-9-28-09-9-28-09, 23+2 wks, emergency classic c-section, class I HELLP, IUGR
#2- Lucas Oliver (rainbow baby)- April 2011, 36+2 wks, HELLP and pre-e free! (lovenox and LDA pregnancy)
#3-Matthew, late October 2012...mostly normal, 37 wks, (lovenox and LDA again)

Congrats to all the moms that have made it through longer than your last pregnancy! That's a huge milestone. I'll be 25 weeks in 2 days. I developed severe PE around 25-26 weeks last year and had emergency c-section at 26.5 weeks. Baby boy named Gabriel, died after 2 days, weighing 1 lb 7 oz. So I'm definitely feeling anxious this time, but also thankful and hopeful that we will all have full term healthy babies. I wish you all healthy, happy pregnancies!

Not a specific reason... my son was born sleeping at 33 weeks, but the placenta didn't show any indication that the pre-e was the cause of his death. So, we just don't want to take any additional chances by carrying him longer than we need to.
Married the love of my life 7/11/2009
Our first child, Peyton Mark, was born sleeping at 33 weeks on Oct. 25th 2011. Developed pre-e at 32 weeks.
Pregnant again with what I pray is our rainbow baby, due Oct. 14th 2012. Will induce labor no later than 38 weeks if we make it that far!

Yay everyone!! My diagnosis and delivery occurred at the same time, 23 weeks so we've passed that milestone. Congrats everyone!

Petunia, is there any specific reason you're being induced?
