  • Was not what i was expecting I went to see the Maternal Fetal Medicine doctor they are the ones who take care of my diabetes here. They did an Ultrasound and measured Amber and the measurements are estimating her at 9lbs 3ozs the doc was very very concerned and said he wants the baby delivered as soon as possible so he said he wanted to do an amnio to check the lung function, and check for birth defects. He said if she gets too much bigger it could kill Amber. I go tomorrow to see the ob and I would not be surprised if they decide to do the c section tomorrow or friday. If they dont admit me tomorrow I will see the maternal fetal medicine doc again on Friday for another BPP, and find out about the lung function but it is looking like its going to be some time in the next week instead of in 4 weeks. I will keep yall posted or have someone log on for me and give yall an update.

    I hope they deliver you... especially if she is measuring that big at your next U/S. That's dangerous... and PLEASE PLEASE if you stop feeling her move GO TO THE HOSPITAL... not to scare you but we had a lady come in with a 38wk demise, diabetic on insulin, but she waited a day and a half to come in since she last felt her baby move.... please please be careful....

    Definatly praying for you and Baby Amber!
