Re: Checking In
I will be 35 weeks tomorrow and will probably be induced at the end of 36 weeks, if not just after Christmas. I've been on bedrest for 2.5 weeks for pregnancy induced hypertension, grade 3 placenta, and low amniotic fluid. The bed rest stabalized my BP, and brought my fluid level up to an acceptable level. I got my betamethasone shots right after Thanksgiving and my bags are all packed and in the van, so we're ready to go. We thought we might be delivering between 33 and 34 weeks, but it's looking like we'll make it close to 37 if not all the way to 37! I am having NSTs and fluid checks twice a week, and growth monitoring every 3.
