If anyone has had an amnio for lung maturity, what was your number? It has to be 55 or greater to be considered "mature" and last week my sore was 47 at 36 weeks. I am getting the amnio repeated on Monday when I will be 37 weeks, do you think I will have hit 55 by then? I am looking for how far along you were and what your scores were!

I am getting amnios to see if my babys lungs are mature so we can induce, since my son was stillborn at 38 weeks, we want to induce before then this time.

  • Just wondering how it turned out. I'm getting an amnio done really soon (maybe as early as Thurs!) and wanted to know how yours went!

  • FYI- I got mine done at 38 weeks exactly and my levels were at 58. The acceptable level for delivery is 50.
