I agree with Suzanne, your story gives me hope also. That's what I love about this place is that you hear stories like yours and feel like, ok I CAN do this ! So happy for you!! I'll be thinking of you on Tuesday.
I had posted in the ask the experience b/c I was having issues with my BP. I went in for a spot check on Wed and it started out high and of course after laying down it came down. They ordered labs and a 24hr urine and I went back in today for a NST. The NST was good and apparently I had 3 mild contractions during the 20min test. My bloodwork for liver and platelets came back fine, not so lucky on the urine, my 24hr urine came back at 368 for protein. While I am just over the 300 cut off my doc doesn't want to take any chances given the severity of my DD's birth. My BP is on the border when I am sitting up, but always goes way down when I lay down, but doc still doesn't want to take any chances. So she went ahead and rescheduled my c-section, I hit 38wks on Tuesday so that is when we are doing it. This wknd I just need to watch my symptoms and to go into L&D if I am having problems. I'm glad I was able to make it this far with DS, especially after DD being so early. And I'm glad I didn't talk myself out of going back to the doc these past few days b/c of weird BP readings at home. And I'm glad my doc would rather err on the side of caution then having me try to push for another week, I've always stated if it's better for baby to come out, take him out. I don't think it has quite sunk in that in 4days I'm going to have my DS! At least everything is ready for his arrival!
