That's awesome news, olya_yurk!  And no meds or monitors to worry about-- what a blessing.  Welcome home to baby Anna!  joy.gif  Thanks for letting us know.  I hope the transition to home life is easy.  And may you never have to see a NICU again.

 

Ky-Momma, you're just 4 days ahead of me!  I hit 35 weeks today, and I've never been pregnant this long, either.  Go us!  And I'm totally getting nauseous again and I think it's from the shots.  I haven't had my milk come in, but it's astonishing how hormones really control everything.  It does help me to believe the shots are working, though.

 

Samhope, bummer about the GD.  I'm glad you're taking it easy, and that the contractions have slowed down.  (I remember before you were getting a LOT.)  I'm also expecting to give birth shortly after the shots end.  June 28th is full term for me-- what day do you get there?

July 28th is full term.  The contractions before were just braxton hicks and bedrest has been a wonderful gift in stopping them.  Our savings took a serious hit, but all worth it if little one cooks to full term!

Olya_Yurk- Great news!!!!  So happy you get to enjoy having baby in your arms at home.  Such a wonderful feeling:)

Just popping in:  I'm 36 weeks today!  Barring unforeseen circumstances, this should mean I get to deliver at the local hospital with our beloved midwives, instead of at the NICU place with OBs like last time.  Huzzah!

I am 34 weeks 5 days today and was talking to my mom about baby probably being about 6 lbs (based on my son's size) and her reply was it's time to get this baby out.  This baby needs to come out already.  She is crazy!!!  I asked her to please put full term baby vibes out into the universe.  So happy Pigirl you have made it to the safe point!

Gaaah, Samhope, she didn't say that?!  Oy!  Here, I'll counter it-- you need to keep that baby in for at least another few weeks.  Not done yet!  (My son was born at exactly 34w5d, and although he's fine now, I wouldn't recommend it if you have a choice.)  And I hear you-- I'm starting to get people saying things to me like "bet you're ready to have that baby!" and "you must be looking forward to not being pregnant anymore!" and each time I end up replying with how extremely grateful I am to still be pregnant.  Nothing like a preemie for your first pregnancy to make you realllly appreciate the last few weeks of gestation....  Here's hoping we all get to experience every last ginormous, swollen ankles, stretch marky pregnant July day.  :)

p.p.s. I had my last 17P shot today!  And I had my GBS test done-- last time my water broke so early I hadn't had it done yet, and I had to be on IV penicilin every 4 !!! hours until they got the results back two days later.  Each little thing I manage to get done before this baby comes just feels so, so, so immensely satisfying!

 

Also, Ky-momma, if you're still pregnant my math says you're full term today.  How's it going?

Tomorrow is my DD's UnBirthday - her Due Date and she will be 15 weeks old from her birth. She is doing very well. We saw her ophtalmologist today and she gave us the good news - her ROP has resolved. We will start early intervention soon. 

 

PiGirl and Samhope, how are you doing? Thinking of you!

Happy Unbirthday to your DD!  15 weeks-- wow-- what an eternity for you guys.  I'm so glad you're starting to get some good news.  I hope it all gets much easier from here.

 

I'm still pregnant at 38w2d!  I'm nauseated and having some contractions, so I think it'll be sooner than later, but I am absolutely thrilled to have made it to term.  I felt like a rock star when the midwife said to me at my 36 week appt, "Oh, we just took you off the high risk list!"  Halleluiah.

 

Samhope, how are you?

Pigirl, Congratulations!!!  Thank you for sharing your experience.  It really does give me hope that my next pregnancy will go much better than my first.

I also think my post didn't appear- hmmm.  I had my little girl on 7/31 at 40wks 3 days.  We are amazed that we made it to full term and very grateful!!!  We had her at home and labor was short and intense.  Off to nap while my toddler is down for quiet time!

Samhope, congratulations!  joy.gif  And it's funny-- I delivered at 40 weeks + 3 days also.  Huh.  Those shots are incredible.  I hope all is going well with your family, and that you're getting some sleep. Thanks for the update.  :)
