34 Week Appt today — The Bump
Pregnant after IF

34 Week Appt today

i had my 34 week appt. today. I had some lower back pain on & off all weekend, so he decided to check me vaginally today. I am 80% effaced, not dilated yet, but baby is way down, he felt his head. My scheduled/repeat csection is May 19- he said that he will be very surprised if I make it to that date! Yikes! Hopefully this little bean hangs in there at least until 37 weeks...

My History:
Lots of BFN's & failed IUI's w/clomid and/or femara
Finally BFP with femara & t.i.- son born 6/17/2010
Started TTC again around when DS was 3ish
Lots of BFN's with femara & t.i & ovidrel
Tubes clear, S.A came back low motility but high count
About to switch to injectables w/femara, did one last cycle with just femara & an IUI with ovidrel- stupid motility was fantastic in the sample, but count was 700,000 AFTER wash! Had to sign a paper to even still do IUI- BFFP (big fat freaking positive) Go figure!
1st Beta 13dpiui 54, 2nd beta 48 hours later 115, 3rd beta 48 hours later 310, 4th beta 72 hours later 1748.

  • One of my biggest concerns with the twins is the OB telling me repeat C-section will be scheduled between 38-39 weeks - and the average twin pregnancy being 35 weeks.  Since nothing in my pregnancy has been average or normal this go round, I am nervous that I will go into labor on my own and it will all of a sudden be an emergency.  I am a Type A planning type of person, so I don't like surprises.  But I keep having to remind myself that it's out of my control.  The best I can do is follow the doctor's orders re: modified bed rest and hope for the best. 

    I hope your LO hangs in there a little longer too.  But he sure seems ready
    to meet the family.  I know you were in super nesting mode already so
    hopefully you are ready for him to come home when he's ready.  :-)  Did the doctor tell you to take it easy, etc?  Or is LO a good enough size that they are not concerned if he arrives early?

  • @lawmom747 - I am a planner as well! I am so nervous that I will go before. He did tell me to take it easy, but wasn't overly concerned if I went early. He also knows I work full time, and have a 4 year old, so "taking it easy" is sometimes unrealistic. My DH helps, but he also works most nights until 7-8pm. So by that time, dinner is made, and my son is bathed & almost ready for bed. I am just praying I make it until at least 37 weeks. I also know that just because I am dilated 1-2cm & 80% effaced, I can be like that for weeks.

    @1220winterbride Can't wait to hear where you are at!!

  • @1220winterbride Ah! That's crazy! I am so ready to have this baby! Good luck with the induction if baby doesn't come before. They say try spicy food, walking, and sex- I tried everything with my first but nothing worked. Well we didn't try sex- I was huge & had no interest, lol

  • @iheartsippycups2 my V exam kind of left me uncomfortable so I'm not too sure about sex 3x per day either! (not in the V just more my groin muscles)

    My heart is as open as the sky.
