I was hoping for 32 weeks and made it as of yesterday!

There is a new test out, fetal fibronectin test, which basically if you pass there is no worry that you will deliver in the next two weeks and if you fail they have detected that the "glue" holding everything together is dissolving which "could" indicate delivering soon. I passed my first and failed the second .... over three weeks ago. All the ladies in my group who failed have already delivered. I have defied the odds and carried longer than anticipated. I also decided to forgo the medication for helping stop pre-term labor and the others did not. Interesting, huh?

Any whoo .... I'm on bed rest (kinda, as I'm a very bad patient .... but am certainly taking it easy), I'm not anticipating carrying to full term, but she is now able to deliver at a reg hospital and we do not anticipate having to go to a NICU .... the little bugger is also over 4 and 1/2 lbs! Much larger than any I have ever carried (and note she is my first vegan baby) and also breech! Since I can not decide on a name, I think she has a foot firmly planted on either side refusing to come out until I do hee hee :mrgreen: I have two I like ...a shame not twins, but can't decide on which. (Sophia Gabrielle, or Lillian Gayle)

Also am totally undecided on a last name. Since I am divorced I still carry my exes last name (Turner). But it seems just wrong to use it .... but then again, that would give her mine and her sister's last name keeping it the same. OR I could give her my maiden name and go back to it myself, although I must say since my maiden name is German (Dunkleman) it does not exactly roll off the tongue easily, lol

On another note ... I can't wait to get back to lifting. I miss it soooo much! Gained 40lbs to date with this pregnancy, although I have no doubt that will lose it, the journey will be a lot of fun (I'm being serious) :)

Glad to hear the update! I was recently wondering how your pregnancy was going.

For what it's worth, I've always loved the name Gabrielle, it's on my 'maybe list' for when I have my own children.

All the best! :)

I think Sophia Gabrielle is beautiful. :)
Glad you two are doing well! Best wishes for the birthing, you'll be in my thoughts. :)

Gabrielle Turner sounds like a movie star!!!

I know that's your choice for middle name but looks like two of us love it for the first name! :D :D :D

Thanks for the update hun. Can't wait to see photos...

Have fun with that!
Fingers and toes crossed here.
Wish, hoping, praying, for a wonderful birth.

Thanks guys! 2 and 1/2 weeks more and I can most likely bring her home almost immediately. As thankful as I am to all the doctors and nurses .... I still don't want to leave her :)

There is so much more research since my last, I actually had to come up with a birth plan which is something I have never done before. More so with delayed cord cutting and NO vaccines to be given at birth.

Starting on my "recovery" workout plan, which could all change in a heartbeat if the bugger stays breech and I have to have a C section. Hoping it goes off without a hitch! (The treadmill has been calling my name :mrgreen: )

Thanks John V!

I managed to catch a stomach virus Tuesday, which got things rolling. It's the first time I have been sick in years .... not fun at all. My fiancé's' son had it Sunday into Monday and then my fiancé, and I'll be darned if I didn't catch the bugger.

So as of today, I went for my weekly appt and I'm completely effaced and dilating. I told him before hand that I was experiencing "the real deal" via contractions and not the one's I have had for months, so we kinda knew. Good news is she is not breech any longer and she is about 5 and 1/2 pounds now at 33 weeks (37-40 is term)! Which is larger than all of my children were at birth save for one. I can not imagine how big she would get if I carried to term! So much for scrawny vegan babies, huh?

We do not expect me to carry very much longer, so any day now .... would love two more weeks, but prob won't happen. The good news is, at her weight if she clears testing, she should come home with a few days. Also good news, no C section means faster recovery! And my training can begin sooner. Also not sure where she is geeting her weight as mine has not changed in a month now...... not complaining! lol

As for a name? I'm taking the advice of another vegan and waiting til I meet her :)
