U/s on March 15th I was in the 20th percentile for amniotic fluid, and my cervix was a 3. u/s on March 29th, I dropped to the 15th percentile in amniotic fluid and my cervix shortened to a 2.9. Bloodwork showed that there are no genetic abnormalities, tested ngative for Downs and Trischtomy (?) 18 as well as neural tube defects. U/s on the 29th showed that his head is slightly larger than his abdomen, but everything else looked good.

The reason I need prayers is because when the doctor was listening to his heart, it stuttered 3 times and when I say stuttered, I mean it sounded like it was going to stop after a few second it would pick back up to his normal speed, but since his heart looked fine on both ultrasounds, we have no idea why it did that.

My doctor is baffled. She can offer no suggestions as to why any of this is happening and she said her optimism about it isnt very good. My heart is breaking I've accepted the fact that I will probably not make it to term, but I need you all to pray that my body will make it at least 2 more weeks and that Jace will fight if he comes that early. I'm beyond terrified that I'm going to lose my son before he even has a chance to live

I have an appointment with the specialist at 2 today so I will try to let you know how it goes, meanwhile I'm going to lay down and try to stop crying. He definitely doesnt need any added stress right now.

Oh my gosh, I am praying for you and Jace! I am so happy you're seeing the specialist today-- they usually have quite a bit more knowledge than our Obs so hopefully they will know exactly what the issue is and be able to offer a solution that will keep you and baby boy safe!

*hugs* Please don't hesitate to PM me if you need to talk!

you and your little prince will most certainly be in my thoughts. I'm thinking positive thoughts for you. Sometimes things look worse than they are, and in fact everything is fine. Try to think positive thoughts. Visualize things going the way you want. It may sound nuts, but just try it. Close your eyes and visualize your baby with a strong heart. Visualize your amniotic fluid levels rising and your cervix lengthening. Also keep in mind that u/s measurements aren't 100% accurate, so it's possible your cervix hasn't actually shrunk at all, and 2.9-3 are normal measurements! Keep doing everything you can to raise your amniotic fluid, too.

also, has your doctor checked to see if you have diabetes yet? that can cause low amniotic fluid, which can be treated if they treat the diabetes. Dehydration can also cause low amniotic fluid levels--another easy fix. blood pressure can also be a factor, and blood pressure can also be managed. Your doctor needs to find the cause and then it can be treated. if your doctor can't find a cause, get a second opinion. *hugs* I know it's scary!

Just curious about the HR issue... are you entirely sure it wasn't operator error? Because I know with the baby being so low down when my doctor looks for her HR she finds it and it fades out (because of her positioning and her moving around), but will pick back up again. I've never been told it was something to worry about to but to the untrained ear (ie: me lol) it sounds like her heart is going in and out. I would wonder about that if I were you, ESPECIALLY because you had a normal anatomy scan!

Lost brought up a good point- I wonder about GD too!

Oh I am so sorry and scared right along with you. I will be saying a prayer around 2PM for the best posible prognosis. Jace is a fighter--give your body lots of rest, and your mind. The second part of that will be hard, but you can't worry about what will happen whether you worry or not. I just can't imagine what emotions you are going through. Please let us know if there is anything we can do.
