I had an ultrasound this evening to check my fluid levels. My amniotic fluid is now measuring 40.41 cm. At 32 weeks the average amount of amniotic fluid is 14.4 cm. The amniotic fluid index charts that I could find on the internet only went up to the 97th percentile which was 26 cm so it looks like I am way off the charts. The sonographer called my doctor after my ultrasound to see if they wanted to see me today but everyone was already out of the office. She talked to my doctor by calling the after hours hotline and he said to call first thing in the morning for an appointment. They want to see me tomorrow. I am guessing that if they want to see me then they are going to want to do something. Either drain the amniotic fluid or induce me. I am just hoping for some relief. I have been having horrible pain in my back and ribs. I guess from the pressure of all of the fluid.
So I have a feeling that some decision will be made tomorrow. That even if tomorrow isn't going to be her birth date that we will at least have some idea when that day will be. I have very mixed emotions. I am very ready for this pregnancy to be over but not ready for her to be born. I so wish I wasn't having these fluid problems and I could just leave her in there as long as possible. But it is getting very physically difficult to continue and I know at some point it will be dangerous for me. I am just trying to trust that this is all happening in God's time. So tonight could be my last night with Ella inside me. That is hard. But I am just trying look forward to the excitement of getting to meet her and spend some time with her before we have to give her back.
