I wanted to update you all, tonight took a shocking turn. It appears my water broke. DH and I are on the way to the hospital. I feel fine, no contractions. Just really scared. Will try to keep you posted, I plan on contacting my DDB in the am (zaney) so maybe she can fill you in on what happens

Update 12/1:
Well, I've been admitted to L&D. I will now be here until I have my baby. As of now baby is fine in there, my fluid levels are good. I had a shot of steroids to help her lungs. I'm not having contractions so at this point they'd like to keep her in a bit longer if possible. My Dr will be here in the morning to fill me in more, as well as someone from NICU.
I'm just chillen in the bed... Was really nervous/emotional before but now I'm just trying to chill out and hopefully get some rest in a bit. DH is here with me, but will be going home soon to get our daughter and figure out who is going to watch her so he can be here with me as much as possible. Since its the middle of the night, I haven't told my family yet. You gals are all I've got at the moment!

Update 12/2:
Umm it's really sinking in, I'm going to have a baby this week! I would have never in a million years guessed this would happen to me.
But anyways... They moved me out of L&D, and into maternal recovery. Im much more comfortable here" off the IV and heart monitors so i have more freedom. Babies heart beat has been great, she is happy as can be in there. I'm not having contractions. I will go tomorrow for a big ultrasound to check her organ development and get a better idea on her size, although today she was estimated at 4lbs, which is great! I'll just stay here on bed rest and continue to be monitored. I could go into labor on my own, and they would let it happen. They'd like to see the U/S results to see what they are dealing with, and assess from there. They may end up inducing me. So it's just kind of a waiting game...
I miss my daughter terribly, it is so hard to be away from her. She is having so much fun with daddy though

Update 12/3:
Finally getting some direction. Unless I go into labor on my own this week, I will be induced on Friday. Had a more thorough ultrasound today, baby weighs 4lbs 11oz, which is great!

Oh, gosh! That is scary! I have heard some great success stories of mommies having their water break early and the hospital being able to keep the baby in for a few extra days, or even a week or two, with careful monitoring. I will keep you in my T&P and will be watching like a hawk for updates. Sending hugs your way, friend!

I can only imagine how you feel, but I'm glad you're stable. And I pray she takes her time and stays in a little longer

So glad you are doing well in there and are being monitored and given the steroid shots. I have heard very good things for babies after the 34 week mark dealing with their lungs, so try not to fret if she decides to make her appearance soon.

I will say however that if these January babies keep being so anxious to come meet the wonderful ladies of this club we may have to be renamed to another December DDC!

Yes, I had a full rupture. But I guess there is still some in there with her, and it also replenishes itself somewhat. Although its like a losing battle bc I'm still leaking.
Dr says baby looks happy in there right now, so the goal is to keep her in there a bit longer. Unless I go into labor on my own. But either way, I'll be having her sometime this week most likely.
