Well, I made it to the end of the road in my pregnancy! I'm 36 weeks, and I was admitted to the hospital on Feb 4th. I went to my twice-weekly doc's visit, and they found a possible blood clot in my placenta, so they stuck me in the hospital to keep me and baby on constant monitoring. I can be induced at 37 weeks as long as the baby's lungs are mature. Lots of people tell me they have healthy babies at 35 or 36 weeks, but you have to remember that I have Diabetes too, so the baby may not be mature yet. So I will probably be stuck here for one more week, have an amnio, and if he's ready - Let's roll!!! I actually find a lot of comfort being here, watching his heart rate constantly on the monitor, and knowing that my contractions are not all in my head. I had a doozy last night right in front of my poor dad! My machine usually reads my contractions about 35 to 50, but I had a whammo at 127, and I thought my dad's eye's were gonna pop out of his body! Funny also is that most women only have one or two ultrasounds in their pregnancy. Due to this "mysterious image" on the ultrasound that may be a placental abruption (my friend Laura calls it "the virgin mary" so maybe I'll sell my sonogram pics on ebay!) I just had my 16th ultrasound yesterday! Its really neat to actually know my baby has all his fingers toes, heart, kidneys, etc. Wish me luck guys! I have my laptop now. And I have 24 hours a day (minus contractions) to type and opine. So, give me some good discussion topics!!! and pray for me and the baby!
