Unfortunately not. my GD was positive with that pregnancy, although I never had to take meds for it and my blood sugars were ALWAYS within the normal range (with the exception of the stupid test). At 37 weeks, my OB said that my DD was over 9 lbs already, and basically gave me the option of amnio for lung maturity and early induction, or an elective c-section. I chose the first. It was my 1st baby and I just wasn't prepared to go against my OBs instructions at that time. Long story short, I ended up with a c-section anyways (after the induction failed), and my DD was a whopping 7 lbs 6 ozs. I would have felt a lot better about it if she'd just apologized for her enormous mistake. I was more than a little angry...I actually made my OB cry at my follow up appointment. She essentially told me that even 7 lbs was too big for my tiny pelvis. I went on to VBAC DD2, who was 8 lbs 6 ozs with a nuchal hand. I'm pretty sure I could birth a ten pound baby without any problem. :-) In retrospect, I'm actually glad about what happened with DD1, because it really made me appreciate my role in the pregnancy/birth process and my responsibility to make the decisions that are right for my family.

Re: BH anyone?

I'm 16 weeks and had 2 yesterday that took my breath away and made me stop what I was doing. I do not remember having them this early with the other pregnancies. I am having my cervix checked at next checkup for other reasons.

Re: BH anyone?

ya mine have been getting more intense and def obvious..... my doctor said he agrees that they shouldn't be a big deal but he wants me to avoid the things that trigger them until I get further along. Last night I had so many it was pretty crazy but I drank a lot of water today so hoping to keep them at bay. I don't care as long as my little man stays put!!!

do you happen to have a yeast infection? That can cause your uterus to be irratated and BH to come on
