Please Keep Her In Your Thoughts... HotMom21ERF Due December 17 (twins); 1 child; Kentucky 20828 posts

My cousin is currently 33 weeks pregnant. She has waaay too much fluid, her stomach is so big, she is incontinent and on bed rest. She is absolutely miserable. Her baby has a bowel obstruction and will need surgery immediately after she is born to correct it. They will not let my cousin go past 36 weeks. The dr said the baby will be in the hospital no less than one month. She will be staying at the Ronald Mc Donald house. Please keep her in your thoughts!

I have a friend who was in the same position three years ago. Her daughter was born at 36 Weeks and had surgery withing a few days. She's a happy healthy 3 year old now and you'd never guess she'd had such a rough start to life. I wish your cousin all the best and I'll keep her and baby in my thoughts. x

It's called Polyhydramnios. I had it also...I was SO huge and uncomfortable. I was also having really bad bp spikes because of it. Scary. Luckily though, I wasn't nearly as bad she sounds, and Aiden was born healthy.



Good luck to her!!! I hope everything turns out ok!
