I just wanted to ask for some good thoughts/prayers/ju-ju/whatever you'd like to send our way tomorrow morning. I haven't felt like talking about it much, but we found that I have severe polyhydramnios (http://www.gentlebirth.org/archives/polyhydr.html for anyone interested) which could be nothing serious, but could also mean something is wrong with LO- his kidneys or esophagus or something else. I went through all the dark twisty thoughts and am feeling optimistic now, since he is growing at the right rate, is very active, gets the hiccups frequently, etc, but it's been really scary and I've felt guilty, like I did something wrong. Doesn't help that DF is out of town on business. Anyway, we have the ultrasound to check baby tomorrow morning, so we'll have some more answers at that point.

 

Thank you mamas!

 

UPDATE:

Thank you all for your good thoughts! Everything looks perfect with Baby Malcolm as far as they can tell. He is head down and was moving around enough (from stomach to back) that they were able to look at all his organs, and everything they can check with an ultrasound was perfect. They even saw him swallow, so that's really wonderful. There's always the slight chance it's something they can't see, but they're really optimistic. There also hasn't been any fluid increase, which is really positive. We go in for another ultrasound in a few weeks just to check on everything, but from what they can tell he's a perfect baby with lots of room to swim around. I'm really glad that everything looks healthy and he's happy in there /understatement.

 

And look how beautiful he is! He has the exact same lips and chin as my daughter.

You will be in my thoughts and prayers - hope all goes well! 

Just know that my sister had the same thing, but gave birth to a very healthy baby boy. 

Keep us posted!

It really does seem in almost all cases it's not actually a problem.... just a variation of normal. Given that 1/100 pregnancies experience it (which is A LOT) it's not a rare issue. But anything that means more tests and possible negative consequences (even if very unlikely) is scary.
