I cannot believe I am finally really posting this to all of you! I am 37 weeks today!! I am both shocked and thrilled! I had my Amnio this morning to check for lung maturity ( since we had a classical csection we have to have another) docs don't want me to go into labor. I will get the results back monday and if alls good we are a go for Tuesday the 15th at 9;30am!!! Gulp, I am still packing my hospital bag because I never got to pack one or do any of this normal stuff last time. My pressures have remained steady and low still no meds ,another shock for me!! Just wanted to share with you all I will write after I get results!!

But geez, why are they so slow? We had my amnio results within a couple hours and they knew they'd have the results by the end of the day at the latest. We delivered the next day. Just wondering what the heck is the point of even doing an amnio if they are going to wait for 4 more days to deliver anyway.

Take it easy after that amnio and everything. Good luck next week!
