Hi Ladies!! I just wanted to share to all of you that Im gonna have my baby this Friday 5/05 :) Im scheduled @ 6am to be induced. Im exactly 38 wks this Friday. The main reason Im getting induced is bcoz I might have toxemia or toxemia might occur anytime and my Dr. is really worried about that. My blood and urine test came back ok.....my platelets are fine but my uric acid was very elevated and that is why my Dr. n I have decided I should have this baby soon. I'll keep you guys posted!! Im veryyyyyyyyy excited right now. 2 more days!

Hi Tess, can I suggest keeping a kick chart over the next few days if you aren't having CTGs? With my first bub I had elevated urate and high bp. when they asked me about fetal movement I thought it was normal, but when I went in for CTGs they kept coming back unreactive, so bubs was born very quickly then. He was fine ... not saying this to scare you just that I really didnt realise that he had slowed down so much. A kick chart will make you pay attention to it, and you can call your doctor if you are worried. Good luck with everything on Friday!

Chrissy- Do you also have toxemia? or might have it? How far along are you? My labor was supposed to be induced for next wk 5/13 but once my Dr. got the results for my other blood test....he was very worried so he sched me first thing this Friday. I'll keep you guys posted.

I dont have toxemia but my blood pressure has been high. I think he is worried about it turning into something if we don't induce. Also my amniotic fluid was a little low yesterday. I am at 36 weeks. The whole idea of inducing is a little scary to me!! Well, really all of it is scary to me anyway! :)

You're not the only one. Im a 1st time Mommy and all this things are pretty much happening very, very fast. Im glad though......its all worth it. Sometimes though to intervene is the only way to jump start labor....I wouldnt consider myself high risk but sometimes my bp are also elevated plus that sudden weight gain really worries my Dr. that is why we've decided to be induced..

Hi Tess, CTGs has a really long name that for the life of me I cant remember now ... like everything else at the moment! They are a test that measures bubs heartbeat with movements, aswell as any uterine activity. So they will pick up if you are having contractions but they will also check that the baby is coping okay with stress and their heartrate is not dipping. When I had mine, they gave me all manner of sweet stuff to get him going but he was pretty flat because my placenta had started to shut down. In my case my BP was >160/110 and I was on the highest dose of medication they could give me ... it wasnt only the high urate. I just suggested the kick chart because pre-e can come on quickly and at least you will know if bubs is stressed. good luck!

Tess..I am so excited for you. I've been following you these last few months cause you and I were due around the same time (I'm the 17th) and we were both having girls. And you...like me....were worried whether the ultrasound tech got it right about us having girls! haha Good luck...and Happy Pink! Let us know as soon as you can how everything went. Best of luck and keep in touch!

3babies- I think I know what you're talkin about. Is that the machine that they put a monitor on your tummy to measure baby's hb? plus other cool stuff? (hehehe) I have 1 more day to go....Im gonna be very busy today......Im on cleaning mode right now (ofcourse w/ the help of my Mom) hehehe I don't even think I can sleep tonight...we'll see. I'll keep you guys posted but it might take awhile for me to post. Take care!

Hi Tess. Yes I'm at 38 weeks 1 day today. I goto the doctor tomorrow to find out if their are any changes. This is my first internal since my strep B test a few weeks back (which I'm positive for...yuck) . I'm a teacher and my last day of work is monday the 8th...its a teacher inservice day. Fun fun! But I'm excited to get done so I can focus focus focus! haha I would be so excited if I were you! I can't wait to hear how everything goes. The doctor keeps saying that I'm measuring big...so I'm hoping they don't let me go too far overdue or anything. My dh predicts I'll go in on the 12th. I hope he's right! But I've got to admit I'm a little nervous about the whole labor and delivery thing. Yikes!

Ba8y6irl- Yeah, it feels like it was just yesterday when I started comin here (pregnancy forum) and I get to meet all of you moms to be :). It really helped me alot....you know being a 1st time mommy n stuff. I can't wait to be Friday!! Trina-Just a heads up....usually 1st internal feels really uncomfortable :( trust me...plus if you we're spotting afterwards don't be alarm its normal (i didnt knew that at first) hehehe I got tested for gbs and it came back negative (yey) I had my 5th u/s when I was 37 wks and she weighs around 7lbs n 7oz Dr. thinks she will be an 8 pounder or so....give or take. Im getting really, really excited every minute....who wouldnt right? Goodluck to all of you ladies!
