I had an amnio this morning to check fetal lung maturity and the lungs came back mature. : So I am scheduled for a C-section tomorrow morning at 11:30.

Please wish us luck and no NICU time or just a very short stay!

Sigh. I had a catastrophic uterine rupture in my last pregnancy and my baby died. I am considered at high risk for re-rupture. About 3 weeks ago I started having contractions. An ultrasound at 32 weeks showed my uterus in the lower area around my scar (where I ruptured last time) is very thin and they are concerned about re-rupture. The peri and OB advised that it was better to be safe than sorry this time and deliver early at 34 weeks. We had originally planned delivery at 37 weeks, but the contractions and the ultrasound changed that plan.

I had a course of steroids to hasten lung maturity about 2 1/2 weeks ago.

Beth,
Also not from your DDC.
Not really from MDC either. (long time lurker)
I just couldn't let this thread go by without letting you know that I'm thinking of you and your family, and wishing you all sorts of luck tomorrow!
