At the beginning of the month we found out I am measuring four weeks ahead of schedule with this little baby of ours. Normally, that would sound kind of exciting, thinking that the baby may come earlier than expected. However, measuring that far ahead could mean that something is going on. So, we had an ultrasound and found that I have too much amniotic fluid. The baby is measuring well (his head is a little big...but that's normal.) Too much amniotic fluid could signal a variety of things good and bad. The baby actually keeps the fluid in balance by drinking it and peeing it out. So, having too much could mean that there is something going on with his digestive system. Like I said though, it could be fine and it could be something else. Time will tell.
Because of the increase in fluid, I get to have non-stress tests every week where they monitor the baby and my uterus. I failed the first one because I was having contractions every four minutes. So they shot me up with some medicine and told me to rest. I now get to sit on the couch and let other people do things for me and not feel guilty about it (at least I'm not supposed to feel guilty about it...)
Seth went down to the Vandal game on Monday and was able to come home last night with the team. The boys and I stayed at my parent's house and they've been taking great care of us.
The Vandal game was awesome!!! It was also fun to see Seth on TV and he was in heaven on the sidelines.
So, for now we wait...I have three more weeks until I hit the safe zone of 36 weeks. Let's just hope I don't go over.
Thanks everyone for all your support and prayers. We have awesome friends and family!!!
