I post way more on FB, but I haven't been giving out every bit of info like I did with Savannah.

So...37 weeks and 2 days. I'm 2.5 cm dilated (from 1cm last week). Still high and no thinning yet. She said that is normal and many times the thinning happens after dilation with #2. Baby has dropped. I could tell and then she told me so based on how I was measuring. She still believe I have a very good chance for a VBAC. He was measuring at 45% at my 30 week U/S and seems to be staying on the same growth curve. I have a repeat c-section scheduled for Feb.6th (40 weeks, 2 days) incase he doesn't arrive on his own. Please don't let it get to that point! Last week I really got a good taste of what "crotch lightning" is and had some contractions.

Trouble with my platelet count this pregnancy. A normal person has 150k and mine continues to drop and is now at 94K. They will keep an eye on it. If I get below 75k I won't be able to have an Epidural.

Also, testing + for the group B. UHH...didn't with Savannah. They said it really is not a big deal.

Is there someone ahead of me or I'm I the next one up for delivery? Hope everyone is doing well!

1st post. Please have your doctor check for HELLP, I was diagnosed at 37 weeks and had to deliver right away. This is a very dangerous disease for you and baby if left untreated. Long time lurker

I think you would be next!


Thanks everyone for your VBAC wishes! I sure hope I can do it. With all the BH contractions and pressure I've been having I better be making even more progress today.

Just cut slits in some old sport bras to make my own hands-free pumping bras. I'm determined to breastfeed this time. I was able to before, but had little supply. I will be working extra hard. Why didn't I think of the sport bra thing before?? lol
