pregnancy update

hello everyone. sorry I haven't posted any updates recently..... time has just passed so quickly. the last couple of weeks have been interesting. After an uneventful (ish) pregnancy, we went for our routine scan (3wks ago) only to find out that baby had stopped growing. now this happened with my first child's pregnancy so my consultants were keeping a closer eye on me. it has been decided that it's time to bail out and it would be better for baby to be out than in so I have now had my steroid jabs, have my final health check tomorrow then if there's a nicu bed I'll be having baby on Wednesday by c-section at exactly 35wks. I am currently at the "let's just get on with it" stage as im a terrible worrier. so the next time I post I hope to be reporting the safe and healthy arrival of my second (and final) daughter. Please all send some positivity for me and jnr and hope there's no need for the nicu support xxx speak soon k xxx

  • Dear Katie, you have done so well to get to 35 weeks. Like many people on here I really feel for you, my son was also born prematurely at 31 weeks( 1lb 14oz) that was 33 years ago and now has a lovely little boy himself.

  • Wishing you all the best and safe delivery of your daughter. Like everyone else, I've also had a preemie, who was able to come home at 35 weeks - hopefully your stay in hospital will be a short one x
