Thanks! I had a freaking awful scare this morning. He's fine but I woke up from the itching (cholestasis is worst at night) and he wasn't moving. Usually he at least shifts as I get up so I went downstairs and got some of the apple juice we have stashed in the basement. He usually responds to juice really quickly but it took him a while and even then it was just little movements. He ended up doing his kick counts in plenty of time (an hour) but half of it I was bawling and seriously thought something was wrong and was about to go to l&d. Finally got a couple hours of sleep a little later on, but hoping my OB will take pity on me and at least check me for dilation today.
Will kUP on how things go!
Updated in my lodge about it more, but the amnio went really well (it was cake, really!) but his lungs aren't mature. If I don't go into labor on my own by Thursday (38 weeks) we'll do another amnio. Aside from my worrying about him overall, this is totally going to screw things up with DH taking time off from work, holiday pay and everything. Trying to relax but just ready to be done. I don't want him to have respiratory issues, but I worry far more about the cholestasis.

Thanks ladies. I'm feeling a little more emotionally stable today. I was just all over the place yesterday with the kick counts thing, procedure and having an induction time set for so close and then finding out that wasn't going to happen. Hoping to go into labor on my own but trying to be okay with the idea of going to Thursday.
Sorry to hear your news. You are very close. I am surprised his lungs aren't mature yet. Hang in there!
