congrats on your lodge!!!
Thanks for starting my lodge. I am so excited to be here. I admire everyone on this board and look forward everyday to reading everyone's updates.
I'm Izelle just turned 27 and SO is Mark who just turned 31. We met about 3 years ago on Match.com and have been head over heals ever since. I am a registered nurse and I work in the Emergency Department. Mark is a leasing manager. We traveled together for our job for the last year and surprise surprise while we were on our way to Texas we got pregnant. It was definitely unexpected but it has been such a blessing in our lives. We are so very excited and cannot wait to meet our LO. We just got engaged about a week and a half ago so I have something to plan once my LO is here. I didn't want to get married just because I was expecting but we love each other so much it was inevitable.
This pregnancy has been pretty uneventful until my 32 week appt when they discovered my low amniotic fluid. I have been going to my MW weekly with NST since then with US's. I have been drinking a ton and resting as much as I can and the fluid has stayed at 6,7,8 and then last week dropped to a 5. I meet with my MW tomorrow am so we will see what happens. Baby has stopped growing in utero so it may be best to get my LO out where the environment is favorable.
My sister was induced with her first child and it was so traumatic with everything artificial you can think of. I have always wanted a NCB being at home for as long as possible then going in at the last minute. I don't know how this will work with being induced possibly but I will talk to my MW about it in the morning. I have had no BH and I haven't lost my plug. This is my first child so I know the saying goes you always go late with your first. At my 36 week appt I was a fingertip dialated which I know doesn't indicate when you will go into labor but hopefully some progress tomorrow so that at least there is a start before being induced.
I have to work tonight so I will update when I get back from my appt in the am.
