Update form the Doctor/ 31 Weeks 5 Days

Well, here is my belly at 31 Weeks, 5 Days, 161 pounds and 44 inches.

We went to the doctor today (we will be going once a week from here on out) they did a quick sonogram to measure my amniotic fluid and it turns out it is still very high.

My doctor told me he doesn't think I'm going to make it to 38 weeks, so now we just take it a day at a time and see how long we can keep these babies in there. He is guessing that I will deliver after Thanksgiving.

Of course, the Lord is the only one that knows when M&M will make their entrance into the world. Please be praying that I will not go into preterm labor, we really want to make it to at least 36 weeks (this is when the babies lungs should be developed, if they have lungs).

So there you have it thanks for keeping up with us!

Just hang in there. I know it has been a long wait but it will be worth it. I am trying to make it to 38 weeks also but I am having some problems with my hemoglobin, iron, and B12 levels. I have to start infusions tomorrow for 4 weeks to hope to get my blood levels up. The babies are not being affected but if I were to go into an emergency c-section it could be deadly for me. So please pray that I keep them in long enough to get me well 1st. If this treatment does not work than I have to have blood transfusions...I hope to not resort to that! On a lighter note, I loved your M&M belly, it made me smile!!! Keep hangin in there!!! Saeweard
