Hello all,
I am currently 29 weeks and 3 days pregnant with my first child. I am considered high risk due to having Lupus. During a rtn NST the doctors were noticing decelerations in the babys heart. They immediately did an ultrasound and noticed a low amniotic fluid. I was sent and admitted directly to the hospital L & D. I've been here since Aug 27th on bedrest and 24/7 baby monitor. They do daily biophysical profiles and fluid measurments. He still continues to have decels. The doctors do not know why the fluid is low as I am not leaking. I'm glad I found this site as you all have a premie section! I hope to get to know a lot of you!! I need all the female support I can get.
BTW I'm having a boy- his name Mason. :-)

Hugs to you mama!!! You sound very positive. I am sending all the positive energy your way. What type of tests are they doing? Has your fluid always been low? and if not why now if you are not leaking? Yes,lots of support here !! This is a great community of mamas. Welcome.

Hi and Welcome to Mothering!


I'm glad you found us. :)  


You might check out the I'm Pregnant forum for some folks who are in the same boat.  It sounds like you already found the NICU/Preemie forum, that's great!  I know that you aren't there yet, but there are a lot of great moms who have gone through something similar and might have some good things for you. :)


Congratulations on your sweet boy. :)
