Just a quick update. I had amnio last Tuesday to check for baby's lungs. We had 95% chance that they would be mature (I was 37 weeks), and then would have proceeded to C-section on Thursday. However his lungs were not mature and they cancelled my surgery (sigh). So it was a rollercoaster of a week for me.


I have another amnio on Wednesday, and another scheduled C-section appt for Thursday 8/19. Wish us luck, we will really really need it. In a meantime I'm back to work because I don't want to waste my FMLA time. I'm tired of people asking me "how many babies" I"m carrying. Yes I'm gigantic. I have double the amniotic fluid and look like Weeble Wobble.

Hope everyone is doing well.

I am sorry it's been so uncomfortable but you are almost there! Hope the lungs are mature this time and you can go ahead with the c-section. Thinking of you and baby Luka!
