Quoting sillygirltracyb 12/25:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Mandhee Dhandapani:</b>" its the amount she has remaining...dr. ... [snip!] ... since my due date is around the corner :)"</blockquote> How do they measure that? ? Looking at ultrasound or what?"

checking the AFI -Amniotic Fluid Index-but ya they check by the ultrasound ...its basically just like when you go find out the sex ..they measure head etc..well they just check the fluids....but i finally got checked an im only 1 cm dilated but my cervix was still way up high...i find out Monday if i will be induced within that week or next...:)

She is here! Miss Aria was born at 10:37 this morning...8 lbs 13 oz and 20" long. Had a fantastic, 9 hour natural labor and she came out with about 3 good pushes...the midwife was scrambling to get ready as she pretty much shot out. No tearing whatsoever and she is nursing like a pro! Will post pics when we get home ;)

Nope, nothing...the nurses were all pretty surprised actually, considering she came out so fast. I tore a little with my first but nothing this time! Everythong went sooo smoothly and I feel great. It's a world of difference from the pitocin labor...

Wow.. thats awesome... I had my daughter all naturally almost 12 years ago.. 1 hour of labor 5 pushes. But I tore. 7lbs 5oz.. they are estimating this son to be in the same ballpark. ..possibly smaller .. but I'm goin all natural again but I just hate thinking about tearing and healing.More so than actual labor
