I had an ultrasound yesterday. They said everything looks great, except my fluids are low. Back at my 28 week ultrasound (6 weeks ago), they were at 17. Yesterday they were at 8. She said this is still in the "normal" range, but the large discrepancy has her curious. So I am going back on Tuesday to check again. If they are dropping, they'll take the baby out. If they stay the same, then he's staying put. I'm hoping he'll stay put!!
I am still having some light spotting, and it's brown so I'm assuming it's from what happened on Wednesday. I have only had one contraction, so that's good.

When I had low fluid the magic number was 5. If we hit 5 or lower, the baby would be born that day. I managed to hang on at 6-9 for almost 3 months. Drink lots of water. There is some conflicting opinion on this, but I figure it can't hurt. I would also make sure they are checking the baby's bladder. If the bladder is very full, your fluid will be lower. The baby is drinking and peeing and re-drinking that fluid. So if there is a lot in the bladder, there would be less around the baby. And when you are in the low range, every little bit helps. I hope you see 8 or more and get to keep baking a little longer.
