I had an appt yesterday and today for Declan. Monday we did a stress test and today was the big ultrasound to see if I am clear or not to fly to California to see my husband get recognized at his business conference. Today the ultrasound showed his levels again dropped. :( He was at 6.7 last week and 6.2 today- The Dr assured me there was NOTHING more I could be doing at this point and flying to California would be just fine. In fact if anything hanging out in the pool will help little Declan's fluid levels. I will definitely be taking it easy in California BUT I get to go!! :) Next week I will of course be doing MORE stress tests an another ultrasound. With how his fluids are dropping chances are this baby boy is coming early. I have read lots online and of course done lots of searches of what to do- and there really isn't anything TO do. I am just sort of in limbo right now and waiting. Everything else scored perfect on the ultrasound 8/8. SO- that's a good sign that baby boy is healthy. Tomorrow I leave for California!:) I forgot to take an updated bump shot- but this is from last weeks shoot- and I am definitely getting ready to pop ANYTIME now since Declan wants to make his appearance a tad early! :) My little man is already stubborn like his daddy. :) Getting nervous and SO SO excited to meet him. I could handle waiting another 6 weeks or so if he wouldn't mind staying bundled in there a little longer!
P.S Thank you so much for your comments on my last post- I am feeling MUCH MUCH better and am realizing that I CAN'T listen to what everyone else says. People will ALWAYS be looking for a way to judge what your doing- what your eating- how you are parenting your children, and everything in between. Ultimately I make the end decisions and decide what's best for me and my baby. I do the best I can and that's all I can do. SO done letting others opinions get to me. This was tough enough when I was dealing with infertility so I can't let that happen now. Speaking of which DON'T forget it's national infertility awareness week! Resolve.Org has LOTS of good information! One thing I will never do is forget the long crazy journey I took to get to this point! :)
