Keep in mind that dating in the late stages is really inaccurate I can link to a bunch of articles about methods of dating gestational age, but accuracy declines rapidly once you're out of the first trimester. can you imagine if ALL 3/6/9/12 mo old babies were all exactly the same size?? there's a huge amount of variation.
(side note: thought this was interesting "Up to 92% of deliveries took place within 37-42 weeks of gestation if gestational age was derived from ultrasound data, compared with 87% based on a reliable last menstrual period. The earlier the ultrasound assessment [until 24 weeks] the more accurate the prediction of date of delivery.")
Being told you might have to stay in the hospital is not news any pregnant lady want to hear, but there's a good chance it won't work out that way. So long as your blood pressure is looking stable and Avery's vitals continue to be strong, I hope they'll send you home and tell you to stay in bed (maybe with an oxygen tank?). Still thinking about you, hope you got a little sleep!
As the other ladies have said ur in the best place will keep u and avery in my thoughts keep us posted I was in hospital a week before my dd was born and I was going crazy then couldn't sleep so I can't imagine much longer I would start a baby blanket to x
Just wanted to say Hi, I was thinking about you this morning and hoping that you are staying as calm and relaxed as possible. Glad you took the meds, pain is such a ***** on blood pressure. Well keep brewing little Avery and taking are of yourself.
