So I had my post term U/S today... "little" guy is measuring 8lbs10oz

But his fluids were lower than they like to see, although we still passed, not by much. So I was sent right over to L&D for my NST that I was supposed to have tomorrow. He passed that with flying colors. I did have an internal because I wasn't sure if I had felt some leaking or not, but it didn't seem like I had been. But I was worried because they were like you may be staying here... which would have been fine if... they would have let me run home first.

I was able to go but I do have to go back @ 10am tomorrow for another u/s to re-check his fluids. If they are ok I stay on schedule with my OB appt on Thursday and plan an induction, if not I think that gets bumped up... so not sure exactly what is next, I just know where to be @ 10am tomorrow morning!

So, long story short... still PREGNANT!!!!

Just had my follow up u/s and his fluids were back up. She wasn't sure if it was from me drinking more water or if she just couldn't get a good shot yesterday because it is cramped in there... either way he is good. So a few more days... I think I have some more Red Raspberry Tea and a pineapple!

drinks lots of water and submerge if you can. A large tub works, access to a pool is better. It will help increase your fluid levels.
