Hi everyone, 31+2 today. Baby still measuring small for dates but has grown. Doppler scan this week showed there is very little fluid around baby, only just enough. Iv started steroid injections. Got to wear a heart monitor as been having bad palpitaions. House bound on the sofa with DD in front of the TV at the mo. Scared to go out or do anything that might start my heart racing or set labour off. Bump is very uncomfortable. Just hoping baby is ok in there and can hold on long enough for steroids to take effect and still really wanting a natural delivery.

Hope youre getting lots of rest Nat.

I just got back from my u/s and baby looks good. Heart rate was 143, and is measuring 19wk 1d. We have decided to wait until birth to know gender, I think it will be a girl though.

I have had a great pregnancy so far, some days I almost forget that I am pregnant!

I hope that everyone else is doing well,

Melanie

Waiting to find out gender is really fun! Happy wishes for a girl.

Oh goodness Nat! I'm sorry you're having such a rough time. It can't be easy with your older DD to stay low-key! Are you on bed rest, or just trying to keep calm? Drink tons and tons of fluids girl, that's supposed to help increase the fluid level, and prevent pre-term labor. Are they thinking they might need to

Thanks for asking about me! :)

I didn't post an update cause I didn't want to complain. LOL For the most part, I'm doing good. But, the last month is always so hard, so I'm just trying to make it through it. My worst complaint is this horrible hip and groin pain that is making it really hard to walk, much less get things done like I need to. But, babywise, everything seems to be going really well. So, I'm thankful for that!!

I have already scheduled my delivery date, so we are on the books for March 4th! Excited to know I only have to make it that far, and certainly would be thrilled to have this baby come a little bit sooner than that too!! :)

I'll for sure update when the baby gets here!! I seriously can't wait!!!

Glad you are feeling good, Sunday!! And YAY for no GD so far!! I LOVED the 2T this time. I felt AWESOME and got a lot accomplished then. Are you finding out the gender before birth? It won't be much longer if you are!!

Keep the updates coming, girls!! I love seeing how far we've all come!!

Glad things are going so well for you, Melanie!!

We're waiting for delivery too, and I have to admit, it's been tough for me!! LOL But, I am SOOOO excited for that delivery room "moment", and I know it will be worth it once we get there!! GL!!!
