Concern for my rainbow

I had my 36 week growth check ultrasound today and Baby is measuring right on for me - 1 week ahead on his leg and abdomen and 5+ weeks ahead on his head (that's just how I grow 'em...my others have been the same way). But, my amniotic fluid is a little low. Not much, really just below the cut off, but, well, you ladies know. Any amount of worry is just too much. This is supposed to be our last baby and I'm just ready to be done. Ready to have him out and safe. Ready to not worry about the babies inside of me anymore. Ready to just be on the other side of all of this particular kind of worry. I have an appointment with my OB on Friday and another ultrasound next wednesday to re-check the levels, and I'm supposed to be starting my NSTs soon anyway, so he should be well monitored. Anyway, pray for me and this little guy and that we'd make it through the next 16 days till my induction without any problems!! Thanks, Ladies!

Praying! I forgot how close in pregnancy we were :-) I'm 36.5 weeks.

Praying! Hopefully the measurement was just off. They had concerns about my fluid levels with my oldest, but even my ob told me that is not a very exact measurement, and things like baby's position and the height of the uterus can change it drastically, when obviously the fluid levels didn't change. Hang in there, baby!

I'm praying for you! Only 16 days away?! It'll be here before you know it. I hope baby stays in good health until then!

Thanks. This is what I was getting yesterday as I was looking around...it's a very inexact science to begin with, and to show up this late and be just a hair below the cut off shouldn't be too bad. And I could've just been dehydrated! So I'm making *sure* I get my 2L of water a day now.
