It has been a while since I have given a general update, and I am getting very close to the end and things are getting interesting!

Last few weeks my amniotic fluid had been on the low end of normal at my NSTs. Monday it was 6.5 (normal is 8 or above). That landed me in the hospital overnight getting fluids, pre-e blood work and a 24 hour urine. What fun! Tuesday morning my fluid was measuring 8.7 and I got to go home. I was so excited because it if had not been good they would have started my induction the next day. I had my fluid checked Wed, Thur and it was good both days. Oh, and after the stint in the hospital my OB said that I would not be returning to work. Not bedrest, but that I need to be able to rest whenever I feel the need and that is not something that can happen while I am working.

I saw my OB on Friday and my BP kind of sucked. 170s/high 90s. I was peeved since I had just had it checked the day before at my NST and it was awesome, and it had been awesome the whole time I was in the hospital. They took it manual and it stayed high. I then had to sit in the exam room waiting for the doc for 20 minutes convincing myself that the waiting was taking so long because they were setting up my induction for that day. Most of the docs in my office can get a little induction happy if you are 37 weeks or more and any little thing is out of place. Thankfully the doc came in and told me that we still had some wiggle room with my BP meds, so he upped those and I will be seen again on Tuesday. I was so greatful! He sent me for more pre-e labs and ordered another 24 hour urine. I told him that I had just had them done, but I am not sure if he was not paying attention or ig things can change that fast.

Through all of this, Pinto has looked great. He is all over the place, all of the time. Always head down and likes to keep his butt jammed up in the right side of my ribcage. When the doc checked me he said I was making no progress (another reason I am glad to have dodged the induction bullet this week!) and that Pinto was way high.

Assuming everything stays good, I will be induced on 12/1. I hope that I make it there, or close to there and then go on my own. I am drinking water like a crazy person in hopes of keeping my amniotic fluid level good and I am taking things easy in the hopes of keeping my bp down.

I am glad they did not have to induce you. I really need to work on drinking more water myself...it is just so hard to do. I hope you get to wait until December! Not much longer now

That is great news! A friend of mine had low fluid and drinking tons of water worked for her, so glad it worked for you too! Fingers crossed for a smooth delivery on the 1st!
