Well, my induction went well yesterday (the 21st) and we are home now.
Baby JoHannah Renee was born at 10:32 pm after an induction for IUGR at 8:45 in the morning.
She weighed in at 6lbs 1oz at 36 weeks 4 days!
She is a trooper and is really good so far!

seriously, I'm so happy everything went well and she looks perfect!

I'd love to know what the doc said when the babe turned out to be right on track for a normal 7-8 pounds at term!!!!

It was not my OB that diagnosed the IUGR. I was sent out for an ultrsound at 24 weeks, because my OB's was not working. They send all their patients to the local Peri. So when I went to the peri it was diagnosed. We knew that she was on for weeks pregnant because of an ultrsound at 8 and 13 weeks for bleeding. So when her measurements went off, they diagnosed her. Her measurments were not just a little off, they were way off! I was just a suprised as my OB was when she was born wieghing 6 pounds. But, in the end I got a healthy baby and it is all i could ask for and I assume that any one in my sitiuation would have done the same thing without regrets.
I am happy she is here and safe with us. But we were none the less shocked when she was born, right on track with no lasting issues, except for some possible hearing loss in her left ear, which needs to be checked again next week.
We love her to pieces!

Some news....
We got her bili levels back and they are quite high, so we are beginning light therapy at home, hopefully this will bring her levels back to normal in 24 hours. The poor thing has had her heel stuck every 12 hours and I feel sorry for her.
All of my babies have been jaundiced, but hers is the worst. The doctor said it was probably because she was early.
But she is nursing well and just started to poop really good so I am praying she is pink tomm. morning.
