The past few days have been very busy and LOTS of fun!!!! This little guy was showered with gifts from friends and family on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday! Our house has been filled with people and I have loved every minute of it. More to come on that...with pictures... :)
Apparently, someone caught wind of all this activity and now thinks it could be a good time to put some of his belongings to use!! My ultrasound was relatively uneventful. As far as cervical length goes, there was no real change-10mm. However, his measurements are a bit larger! 5lbs 1 oz!! He is a growing boy who still seems to have lots of hair. We were able to catch lots of good practice breaths despite him moving all over the place. Too bad he had his hand in front of his face. Seeing how it will likely be my last ultrasound, I was hoping for one last peek!
Dr. B was pleased with the ultrasound report and wants to continue with my current medication routine. He will be out of the office the 19th -25th so we discussed plans for the next 2 weeks. He tentatively gave me permission to take a few outings via wheelchair. The only deal breaker would be the results of the fFN and he would call me with the results. Having had a fairly calm week, I wasn't too concerned about that.
In the meantime, I made plans to spend tomorrow with Blake, running a few errands. And then I thought we would make it to small group on Thursday night. Lots of plans. Dr. B called around 5:45 with the results. I got my first positive. What? Did he say positive? He did...
So, there is a 30% chance I will go into labor in the next 2 weeks. Great. Just in time for Dr. B to be out of the office! Needless to say, my plans were quickly changed and I will remain on the couch instead! As I have said before, this test is not a good predictor of going into labor. It is better at predicting if you will NOT go into labor. So, this little guy could stay put another 4 weeks. It is just that the chances are now a little higher that he won't.
If anything were to happen from this Wednesday on, all he will do to try and stop labor is fluids. Stronger meds are contraindicated beyond 34 weeks. If the little guy says put through next Monday, Blake will be responsible for giving me my last progesterone injection. And if I make it to Christmas day(35w1d), it will be the last time I take terbutaline and procardia.
I really, really, really, really do not want to go into labor the 19th-25th. Dr. B is in town and will have his pager. But there will be times he is unavailable. We have been through so much with him at our side. I think I would cry my eyes out if he weren't with us when this little guy is born. He said he would do the same! It may be a silly request, but please pray that Dr. B will be there when the time comes.
So there you have the latest news! I will post pictures from this past week very soon!!!
