Day 35


Happy Birthday to Me!!!

This will certainly be a birthday I will never forget! My mom came by for a surprise visit this morning with a bunch of balloons 😀 It was a very nice visit! I also had 2 of my nurses come in and sing happy birthday to me.

I had a sonogram today. My AFI was 7 and the BPP was 8/8. They estimated the baby now weighs 4 lbs. 6 oz.

Day 30


It’s a new day complete with a new look for my blog 😀 After doing a little switching around with my blog I am now feeling much better 😉 Hopefully my bugs have been taken care of.

Hubby came up this morning and brought me a coffee. He was able to do that thanks to my MIL being at home to watch the little ones. Hubby will head back to work on Monday.

I had another sonogram today. My AFI is up to 7.8!! :mrgreen: The BPP was 8/8. The baby is looking GREAT!! He is SO active!

Day 28 – 4 Weeks


I am 32 weeks today!!! It has been 4 weeks since my water broke. I had a sonogram this afternoon. My AFI was 7.4 😯 :mrgreen: !!!! That is more then when my water first broke!!!! Of course his BPP was 8/8. The high risk doc said he recommends being induced by 34 weeks. My doc is saying 35 weeks. I guess it all depends on how well the baby is doing. So it looks like I may only have 2 weeks left? Only time will tell 😉

I have to say that I can’t wait to meet this baby. He has proven to be such a feisty little fighter. He is the most active in the womb then all my other kiddos. When the sonogram tech went over his foot he made sure to give her a nice kick each and every time. 😆

DAY 16


I woke up at 4am and I was soaking wet!! When I went for my sonogram they said my amniotic level (AFI) was down to 1.1 😯 My doc keeps telling me it’s not the level of fluid that is the issue. It’s how well the baby is doing. Well the baby is doing great!! Every time they look at his monitoring strip they say how well he’s doing. He is even doing better than babies that are “older” than him! So now it’s just waiting for something to happen. I go back for another sonogram on Monday.

Day 13


Today I am 29 weeks 6 days. I had a sonogram this morning to check my fluid levels. My AFI was 4.2. At this point a c-section seems like the way things will have to go. Unless by some miracle I go into spontaneous labor and go quickly. But the reality is that we are waiting for the baby to show signs of distress and I will be taken immediately for a c-section. Sadly hubby will most likely miss the birth due to how far we live from the hospital. 😥 I’m getting myself prepared for this to happen so that it will not be so emotionally shocking if/when it does happen. If I do get to delivery vaginally I will be thrilled but at this point it is all about the baby and what is best for him.
