Being induced tomorrow :)

I saw the midwife today and she tried to brush me off but my hubby kept badgering her, I mean really pissing her off. So, she ran some extra tests and found a couple things that concerned her. My amniotic fluid is at 28 (12-24 is normal) and it is full of fecal matter. Also, Liam's neck is bent backwards at a scary angle so she called the OBGYN and consulted with him. He said do it! LOL. We have to go in and meet with the OB tomorrow and they offered me a c-section but I told them we would wait and see what the OB reccomended. So, we will be meeting Liam tomorrow :) They also predict he's around 9 lbs.

Thanks! They showed me the pics. There was a large section of fluid and it was full of "debris". You could see floaters and she said it could only be fecal matter. I hope he doesn't come out looking discolored (green or grey).

You know all babies are grey at birth.

I hope that you have an easy induction and everything goes smoothly.

Good luck
