Amnio a lot weirder than I’d thought.

Still stuck waiting for them to decide what to do with me.

May go home tonight to be induced this weekend if amnio is good.

Baby looks good, 7 lbs 8 oz.

My platelets are low.

Still haven’t peed out the 4,000 bags of fluid. Am now bigger than ever.

Can’t manage eating yet.

  1. Waiting is worse than the bloating, I think.

    Just keep thinking about how good that first pee will feel when you get rid of the 4,000 units of fluid. And how much weight you will lose with it?

  2. I am on pins and needles waiting. Get it – pins and needles / amnio??!! I made a joke.

    Let us know soon as possible. All good thoughts going your way. Stay strong!!

  3. Hang in there!!!!!! We here on the Internet are pulling for you to have your precious baby girl soon..Will be watching for updates.

  4. Becks, has anyone mentioned preeclampsia? I know your bp is okay, but it presents so differently in different folks. At any rate, you’re in the best place possible. How low is low in regards to your platelets? Mine hit 50k with my first. Hope her lungs are ready, you have an easy induction, and you’re waving from the otherside of all this in a short while.

    Thinking of you lots.

  5. I’m thinking of Heffalumps and I don’t know why, hmmm

    Maybe later we can compare pictures of our puffy feet instead of babies?

    Hang in there babe, your daughter is almost here:)


  6. I’m siding with Heather on this one and worried about preeclampsia or HELLP…I know your bp is fine, but with my second pregnancy my bp never got really out of control but I had the swelling and low platelets. I’ll be thinking of you, and I hope that soon you’ll be updating us to tell us that your sweet baby girl is here!

  7. Ah, the interminable hospital wait…just makes you want to, I don’t know, unplug something vital to make people start moving. I hope they get you an answer soon, although I don’t think I’d go home without a baby.

  8. Yikes — I get bogged down with work for two days & this is what I find when I surface to read blogs. I too hope they don’t let you go until that baby is here! Take good care!

  9. Hospital dumb heads! Listen up! The baby is big enough. Induce Becky! Or cut her open and pull Amelia out! Do something to end this woman’s suffering, for God’s sake!!

  10. The swelling is scary, but I only really had it with #1. (9 pound baby, born in August; people used to look at my feet swellking right out of my sandals and say “Oh, those are disgusting!” Or the kinder ones: “Oh, your poor sad feet!”) She’s a great size, if that’s any indication of how ready she is to join you. I hope they keep you there until she comes out; it just gets a little scary to think about being sent home when you know so little. But the end is near, and soon you’ll be able to look at her little face!

  11. Um, yay? No? Huh?

    I hope they don’t discharge you if you haven’t peed. There, I said it.

    And since you don’t have email you’re probably reading this, like, oh, Sunday, holding your baby, so Whee!

  12. I’m still here thinking of you, hoping everything is all right. I wish I could piss rainbows for you, promising you everything WILL BE okay but what the fuck do I know? Just know that I’m here if you need me. xoxo

  13. Handcuff yourself to the hospital bed and chant “Hell No, We Won’t Go,” – this is so frustrating – are they giving you steroids to help the baby’s lungs improve? Why can’t anyone make a decision? I wonder if it’s the insurance bureaucrats holding up the induction – don’t they realize that the sooner you have the baby, the sooner you leave the hospital.
    Well, I’m leavng town, so I’ll try to check in now and then.

  14. Good luck, Becky. This sounds like no fun at all. Hope the discomfort isn’t too bad, and that it’s all over soon with another little chicken to cuddle.

  15. If you can survive the amnio, it’s going to be fine! My friend had her kids three months early, and they’re gymnastics stars. Girls are super strong babies, so I hope they get this show on the road for you. Big hugs and good vibes coming yor way, sausage family!

    Can’t wait to see Amelia!
