Well, it looks like this baby is coming Saturday! I have had issues with Anti-Kell antibodies in my blood and they have been monitored throughout my pregnancy. Everything looked fine until this past blood test which showed the antibodies are multiplying, indicating that my blood is rejecting the baby. This can cause severe Anemia and even death to the baby. So, since I am past 37 weeks now the doctor has decided we need to get her out and safe ASAP.

This is not what I had expected or hoped for at all, but I know in the end it is best to get her safe and make sure she is okay. I am praying it goes smoothly and I deliver easily...but most importantly I hope she will be healthy and ready! Hopefully no need for the NICU since the are catching this stuff pretty quick and have been watching it.

So, I guess my pregnancy woes are coming to an end and new mommy woes begin!

Thanks everyone! I really am thankful to have an awesome doctor that I can really trust. I know that he is very anti-induction unless he really feels it is needed so I trust that this is exactly what needs to happen and what is best for the baby. She is safer outside now.

I can't believe she is going to be here tomorrow! I am just trying to enjoy this last day today alone with my little man before life changes. They are only going to be a year and 20 days apart! I am nervous and excited!

I will post pics and her story as soon as I can!

My sister in law had something very similar with both boys and both were very healthy, with no NICU (and one was born at 35.5 weeks)

Will be thinking of you!

Kat.
