I have had the scan, and for once I don't feel totally crushed

Nothing's changed essentially, but the good news is that baby is now head down and will hopefully stay that way, the amniotic fluid level is now within normal range, and I will be allowed to give birth spontaneously and naturally as things stand now.

Doctor did offer to induce me if I wanted to, but I said no.

Will have another scan in two weeks' time, to see how things are then, unless of course I go into labour beforehand!

Thank you all for taking an interest in my ongoing saga.
Hard to believe that this pregnancy is ever going to end...

emkana, have been following your threads and thinking of you.

i am really pleased to hear this and so hope everything goes well for you.

Glad there's some good news for once and that you're headed for a natural birth.

Hi emkana - I've been reading your threads and hoping for the best for you. How many weeks are you now?

LadyTophamHatt Mon 22-May-06 14:32:52

Oh that is good to hear Emkana.

Did they say that the amniotic fluid would cahnge when you've seen the doc's before?
could it be a sign that this little one is ok and the doc's have it wrong??
I saw your thread the other day where you said that a neice or nephew had the same sort of head measurments as a baby but is fine. Could it be that this is what is happening for your little one??

Ah, I was hoping this was you. Good news, and I hope it's the first of many signs of hope.

emkana Mon 22-May-06 14:34:24

Thank you all.

Lady thh, I would so love to believe that, but the doctor didn't mention anything of the sort and I try not to go down that route because I forbid myself to think too positively!

Emkana - good to hear that nothing new / bad / conflicting / confusing has been thrown in! It sounds vaguely re-assuring that the amniotic fluid levels ahave stabilised to a 'normal' level.

No Lady THH you didn't upset me, not at all.

It's just so seductive to follow that train of thought, and I don't want to allow myself to think that way.

dinosaure Mon 22-May-06 16:42:58

Been thinking of you, emkana, and am sending you best wishes for the birth.

Glad to hear the scan brought some good news for you. Fingers crossed that your baby stays head down and you get to meet him soon.

Emkana no real joy for you but I know you posted on my thread about my sister (I am chicagomum btw) and I just wanted to let you know that she gave birth this morning to a boy. One of his kidneys is very damaged and will never function, but the other appears 100% normal, so as long as urine output is ok he will need no further treament. I know this doean't change your situation one iota, but I thought you minght like to hear the good news. Still thinking of you as always.

emkana Mon 22-May-06 20:29:26

Good to hear that about your sister, cov.
How is your sister feeling now?

pooka Mon 22-May-06 20:29:39

Was wondering how things were going earlier today so thanks for the update. Wishing you all the best for a straightforward delivery.

ComeOVeneer Mon 22-May-06 20:31:57

Haven't spoken to her yet as I was at work all day and only found out this evening. I wish with all my heart you end up with such good news.
