A quick update-

Babies are still cooking, and look like they are probably going to stay that way. No progress whatsoever as of Tuesday. I'm 37 weeks now, and my fundal height was measuring 48 weeks. I did test positive for group-b strep so will be getting IV antibiotics when the time comes, although they'll have to work around my allergies. I'm swelling worse and worse as the days go on, my legs and feet are balloon-esque. I'm getting edema at my old c-section scar too, which is really weird and disconcerting. Everything looks fine though no signs of preeclampsia, so there aren't any concerns. Just discomforts and unease.

Right now I'm trying my best just to hang in there, and hoping that the babies do too. I'm still very uneasy about waiting so long for the c-section, but there isn't anything I can do about it and technically it should be fine. I just get anxious, like I mentioned before. I'm terrified of something happening to them because we waited too long, and I know that it's mostly irrational. After what happened with my sister though (with her stillbirth), I really can't help it.
So basically, I want them out for a lot of reasons. I am more than ready to have them out.

10 more days.

Totally get how you feel. Hoping that you continue to keep pre-eclampsia at bay. ((( HUGS )))

I have been wondering about you lately! That's so amazing that they are still cooking - less likely NICU time in their future. :) I can't wait to see pictures of those two miracles! Almost to the finish line!

I am thinking of you, I remember how scared I was at this point and just wanting nothing more than Allison OUT. I will be keeping you in my prayers.
