post-amnioreducation

Sep 24, 2011 - 8 comments

Okay- they removed over a liter of fluid yesterday- I feel so skinny! lol  I know the amniotic fluid is the babies pee- but I don't know why I thought it would look different- I guess I expected it to be pink with glitter since I am having girls!!!  but no- it was just a huge bottle of urine- yuck.  They got me down from 11 cm to somewhere between 7 and 8 cm.  Still a little at the high side- but I was glad they did not take too much.  The dr and staff were wonderful.  I was a mess until about 1/2 way through when I finally relaxed.

So far so good.  I have not really had any side effects other than a little spotting but hopefully I am done with that. Of course, I had to call the emergency line.  

The little baby that was being smooshed by the bigger babies amniotic sac was moving like crazy when it was over.  I think she was happy!!!  The other funny thing- they were both swatting at the pipe- when they put it in- there is a needle- but then they take it out so it is just like a straw.  It was funny- but it also hurt.  I guess they heard the noise!?!?!

Basically- they did an amiocentis- but then just kept going to remove fluid.  Now they are running the amnio tests and some other tests on the fluid.  I am just praying there are not any negative consequences but they said immediately after things looked fine.  We go back Tuesday and fly home Tuesday night.

Last week I really felt like i was coming to Philly with 2 babies and possibly leaving with just one- but now I feel better.  We still are not out of the woods- especially since they do not really know the cause of our issue.

For now- I am just thankful on so many levels.  I am feeling more like myself.  I am still praying and hoping for a miracle- but aren't we all.

Thank you, you have no idea what your support meant to me!
