Update! (For those checking in)

I had my ultrasound late this afternoon (Thursday) and my fluid levels were at 5. Now, 5 is still low, but better than 2.7. My doctor called me shortly after I got home and she told me to be prepared to deliver Monday, if the fluids are 6 or below, she will deliver. If baby stops moving over the weekend, I'm to go into the emergency room.

Just to answer some of the many questions:
I have low amniotic fluid, not fluids in my body. SO, drinking fluids does NOT help. My doctor said it is caused by poor circulation, caused by age (I'm almost 40) My diabetes is under very tight control and baby is healthy. My uterus is not showing any aging or calcium deposits, which is good. She just needs that fluid inside!

Tomorrow (Friday) is Mary Hannah's early birthday party, so I'm just so happy we didn't have to cancel on her, she would have been sooooo disappointed. She's the last birthday of all the children (Sept 2) and has been waiting for what seems forever for "her" birthday! I'm doing a butterfly theme, but not my usual theme party where everything including the food is butterfly. I got Papa Murphy's pizza for lunch and we just have 3 or 4 things planned. I also picked up cupcakes from Sam's club today, so no special butterfly homemade cake, as SHE wanted Sam's cupcakes, not a special cake!! Ok, easy enough for me!! I'll try to post some pictures this weekend, if I get a chance...but I usually do not post on weekends so no promises here! She has wanted a "pilata" for over a year now, so we are doing a butterfly pinata!! She is only having 3 friends, but with our 3 girls, well, it makes a busy enough party!

When I DO go in the hospital, it will be a c-section, so I will be there for 4 days. I will not post from the hospital or probably much afterward, I will be enjoying my baby! I did put Christine in charge of posting a picture of the baby and her weight, etc on here, she will be my guest blogger! Her and her hubby are going to be godparents and I'm pretty sure she uses less explanation points!!!

Thank you so very much for all your prayers and concern, I am truly blessed.
