On thursday my water broke at 29 weeks.  Not a trickle, but a Gush...we thought she was going to come out.  I was air lifted out of out tiny little mountain town to a high tech hospital hours away with a nicu.  I never went into labor.  I have recieved steroids to mature baby's lungs and I am on antibiotics.

 

This was Sooooo unexpected, my other kids went to term.  My gut feeling is this is result of a fall that happened the week before and the dehydration I have been battleing in the heat....possibly resulting in a bacterial infection.

 

They want to keep me here till 34 weeks. I am visulizing the water bag resealing, hopefully I can go home on bedrest and continue my original birth plan.

 

The on call OB really pissed me off this morning, referring to inductions/c-section without even asking my opinion whatsover.  This is so far from my beliefs, I want to tell her off.

Yes I am on the moniter, babys head is very low...blocking the cervix :)  We seem to be hanging in there.  I keep hearing about water bags resealing.  She had lots of fluid in there on the ultrasound.

So sorry to hear that!  It is really great that there is so much fluid.  I have seen some docs take it day by day, and only plan for induction/c-section if baby looks "sick" on ultrasound, fluid gets too low, or you show signs of infection.  Others are much more aggressive.  Ask him to explain his reasoning to you.  It is a real balancing act though.  Keep talking to your doctor...let him know your wishes,....This kind of situation changes all the rules though!

 

My original due date was 9/30.  I was hospitalized at 17.5 weeks for bleeding that also resulted from dehydration after have months of m/s followed by a bad case of the flu.  The bleeding was controlled, (partial abruption) and I have been on strict bedrest at home since then.  I am trying to hold onto my original birth plan, but even if the pre-term labor doesn't get in the way, I am also having twins, which complicates things.  I am in the process of re-prioritizing my birthing choices in the event of c-section, or if they are pre-term.

 

If you are on facebook, let me know....I spend hours there everyday since I have been placed on bedrest!
