    hey everyone haven't posted in a while because so much is going on. first i am now 35 weeks pregnant and i just got out of hospital last week. they put me in to watch my heart and to get more rest. i have been having alot more symptons and they don't want to up my medicine anymore because of the baby. i will be induced next week but they have not decided on what form of medication they will give me for pain so whatever they decide will decide whether i have him natural or c-section. will know more on thursday about that. baby is not small after all like they said the medicine would make him. actually he is bigger than he is suppose to be. well that is about all that is new with me. hope everyone is well.

          I'm assuming you've talked to Lisa about epidural risks, etc.

          My mom's doctor always said that babies are much stronger than anyone gives them credit for, so I'm not surprised he's fine despite the meds you are on.

          So keep us posted and take care,
