Let me begin by saying that im sorry for being a bit MIA - i was feeling a little depressed...

Well, I had my bi-weekly CL scan today & it went from 2.0 two weeks ago to 2.67 today I was ecstatic!!! I asked my OB about the likelihood of being able to go back to work & she asked "Do you really want to?" I told her that I would prefer to never go back, but I was worried about the little bit of time I had remaining for after Annalise makes her arrival. She said that she wanted me to take the remainder of this week & go back in next Monday- then she would reaccess whether I should go back on bed rest. So I get to go back to work on Monday!!!! She said I would have to just go sit at my desk and only get up to get food and then it would be back home and directly to bed. I know I should take it more slowly, but I think the stress about how to come up with money to pay bills after I ran out of vacation time was beginning to wear on me. So, she is weighing in at about one and a half pounds

my OB is also going to be giving me the steroid shots Monday & Tuesday of next week... I'm still trying to determine if that's a good thing or not

It's probably a good precaution just to do it. If I was in your position, I think I would feel safer knowing that if things changed, she had had the shots. Have they given you any negatives to doing it?

I agree with Amber about the shots. I'd take them just as a precaution.

That's awesome you'll get to go off bed rest with light activity!!!

I really didn't ask many questions because I trust her judgement... I don't think there's anything wrong with doing it, I had just heard from many people that they like to wait till labor is imminent.

I agree about the shots. After my scare with the ffn test, I am still not able to get the shot and its a big stress for me right now. Atleast if you got it, and something did change, you won't have to worry about that.

Glad you had a great appointment.
