Anne is right - **fingers and toes crossed**.
Jen, your docs sound totally awesome and I know you already know that but just wanted to give you some additional positive support there too.

Hope things go well today... I'll be thinking of you..

I had flow issues with this pregnancy, and it was very nerve-wracking. Since there was nothing else I could do, I spent a lot of time on my left side, I don't know how much it helped Clover, but it made me feel like I was doing something! Hugs, and fingers crossed for at least 2 more weeks!

Thanks ladies...everything makes me worry these days. :) I don't have much else to do but worry! I will try not to worry though, I know the docs are all over me so that is a comfort. Hopefully my labs come back good tomorrow too!

I'm glad they're monitoring you closely, and I also suggest you try and trust your OB. :) I know it's hard sometimes. Personally, for example, I can't help but wonder about placenta's calcification, as recently with both scans the doctors have clearly been a little surprised over how much calcification there's been (when they've reported it to the nurse), but when I've asked about it, they've said "oh it's okay and totally normal at this point".

It still makes me wonder. :)

Jen, you've made it this far - I'm pulling for 36! No pressure ;). I'm so glad your doctors are all over this stuff.

If your OB isn't worried I would try really hard not to worry either (I know, easier said then done). Your OB will let you know when something is a concern. I am glad that you go back so soon, then you won't have to wait too long to see how things are.

Take care.

Today's blood flow study

Postby joker » Tue Aug 29, 638609 8:05 am

Was slightly "less" than it was last friday, according to the peri. he said he wasn't actually concerned with it because the change was so minimal, but it does make me worry slightly. My fluid was up which is good and I had labs drawn again so we will see what those say in a day or so. I go back on Friday for another blood flow study. hopefully it will be fine. Peri said it could just be the GD wearing down the placenta a little. I would really like to go two more weeks, but if we get to 34, that would be good too. (33 this week!)
