We are totally liking today's doctor the best!

So we have another new doctor on call today- still not my regular doctor, as she is out of town this week. But today's doctor looked at my charts and spoke with some specialists, and they all feel that it would be rushing things to deliver as soon as baby's lungs are mature. Even though she's small,and that's a concern, there are other things that the doctors also look at, and baby is doing fine in those other areas.

The newest plan (and we're hoping this one sticks!) is to give me the last shot tonight and then send me home. I'll have lots of extra monitoring and tests and we'll see how her growth is doing in another 2 weeks. There are some other issues going on as well, so the chances of us making it to 39 weeks (when we were originally planning for a schedule c-section) are still small but I got prayed out of here this week, so keep at it you never know! I will keep you all updated as we learn more over the next few weeks.

Wonderful news! I think that's fantastic that you get to go home. Take care of yourself (and New Baby too!).
