Another quick update

Some recent news about 2 good friends' miscarriages has really been weighing heavily.  Both gals had been trying for too long and these were much wanted pregnancies. I am so incredibly saddened by the news of bad stuff happening to the best people.

In other not-so-great news, my amniotic fluid levels were borderline high at my last appointment Friday so we go back Thursday for a check. If it's still borderline high, I'll go see a high-risk specialist to help me make sense of what's going on. From what my OB said, in about half of cases where this happens, there's no known reason. In the other half it can be due to gestational diabetes (which I don't have) or birth defects which neither blood work or US have been able to detect. Really hoping fluid level goes back to normal Thursday.  Baby girl was squirming around in there a lot - weighing in at 5lbs 4oz.


  1. I'm so sorry for your friends, that's heartbreaking! I hope your fluid levels are back to normal next time. Mine were "high" at one point, but back to normal later. They said it wasn't an exact science, since they can easily measure a space more than once depending on view.

  2. Baby - behave! I am very sorry to hear about the m/c, they take on a new meaning in this community. Let us know how you go with the specialist appointment. Sending you well meaning belly rubs x
