I just got back from Maternal Diagnostics where my amniotic fluid had dropped from a 5.86 to 5.73, but still above the dreaded 5.0 induction baseline. Thank goodness- I’m just not ready to be induced yet. The printout did show 4 contractions during the test, though.

Oh, and this weekend? The orders to rest and drink fluids? Yeah, that turned into a 9-hour car-shopping bonanza in Los Angeles yesterday. I KNOW! I’M STUPID! But we got a really pretty car! And I drank lots of water!

My next test will be on Thursday morning. Until then, fluids and bonbons on the couch. I PROMISE!

Whoorlito says Ciao!

    Okay, I am gonna be nosy as well – what kind of car did you get?

    Sorry you are having to deal with the heat. I am glad I am not preggers dealing with 100+ temps. Today the high is supposed to be 102º but their weather guessing has been low these last few weeks.

    Here’s to hoping your next test comes out okay.

    71? I raise you the 100 we hit today and the fact that they say it’s going to be 114 here tomorrow. And humid. REALLY humid. Which, well, fuck. Maybe I should fly home for a few days…

    Hope the lovely weather has held!
