Roth Baby #2 - update #15
Tuesday's update: it's been 2 weeks, 1 day and 6+ hours since my water broke and that I've been in the hospital. We retested the amniotic fluid this morning and the baby's lungs are "mature enough". This means we induce first thing tomorrow morning (Wed 2/15)! We will be 35w2d...the doctors won't let me go pass 36w with my water breaking at 33w...too much risk involved for me and baby. The doctors say that this little guy could be born in 4-18 hours...so he'll either be born on 2/15/12 or 2/16/12. Assuming no complications occur, I will be discharged after staying one more night after he's delivered. Baby#2 will be discharged after he passes 3 tests: 1) keep his body temperature in a normal range; 2) eat well and on his own without a tube; and 3) breathe on his own without a CPAP or tube. I am both nervous and excited for tomorrow morning...I hope I can get one more "good" nights sleep before we become a family of 4!
