    My daughter is pregnant with her 2nd daughter. she is 33 weeks and has had issues with this pregnancy. her amniotic fluid is low and she now has to go to the doctor 3 times a week until baby Cayla is born. they have her drinking tons of water trying to get her levels to go back up. there is a possibility that the baby may have to be delivered early. asking for prayers that she can make it until her due date. thank you

    Try not to worry too much. At 33 weeks baby has an excellent chance. All my children were born early and they have done just fine. Relax and go with the flo is everyone's best option. Good luck.

    Indeed, will send a few prayers her way. It is a stressful time, but even if she was to have to give birth soon, at 33 weeks the baby is far enough along, and after some care would be fine. My daughter was born at 31 weeks, she had a bit of a hospital stay just to help her catch up to size, but developmentally she is fully there.

    My niece was 2.1 pounds when she was born and she went down to 1.9 pounds. You would never know that now. Praying all goes well. Hospitals are so great now and know so much more then they did even 10 years ago. God be with you and your family.

    thank you. her fluid level went up 1 cm... so that's a good sign. she was going to spell the baby's name with a K until she realized everyone we know that has babies or is having a baby this year is spelling their names with K.

    How wonderful! Hopefully the good news will keep rolling! :) And isn't it funny the trends with names! And the little things that can be done to spelling to make them that much better & unique! My daughter fell in that same boat!

    Her fluid dropped again. and on top of that Her DD was put in the hospital. she had an ant bite on her behind that got infected. she had to Have it surgically drained. turns out the infection was MRSA. she was in the hospital for 4 days. she got released yesterday with a bighoe in her butt cheek that looks like a bullet wound. My poor baby.
