35 weeks today!!
I've been here for 12 days now. Bloodwork still looking good. Bp has been good to borderline high as well. We just finished another 24-hour urine collection today, hope to get those results tomorrow. A sonogram last Thursday showed that bloodflow from both my arteries on both sides of my ovaries (around there) is not optimal but the main source, the umbilical artery is good. They will most likely do another sono this Thursday (hopefully to check for growth)
My question: the plan is basically to induce at 37 weeks (in 2 weeks!) the dr stated they have to do an amnio to check on her lung maturity. I already told her I wasn't going to do that, that I had previously declined an amnio and she went on trying to convince me that the chance of miscarriage is really low blah blah blah and steroid shots are not advised after 34 weeks. Is this true? Do I absolutely have to do an amnio now that we are so far along? There have to be other options. Right? I would have to have to do this now when I was so adamant about not having it done previously. Is my other option to watch Thalia struggle to breathe if she were to be born now with under developed lungs?
Thanks again ladies!!
