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
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)
