    Because of my blood disorder, the hospital have finally decided to induce me (they were going to, then they werent, and now they are again!) so instead of being around 8 weeks till baby is due (feb 7th) they are inducing me 3 weeks early on January 20th! its suddenly all real and happening!!! bubs was estimated at being 7lb8 - 7lb12 at full term but now he will be smaller. :wacko:

    on a better note i had another scan today and hes perfect, the photos are amazing. hes got hair already, and was practicing swallowing and breathing!!

    cant believe in 5 weeks i will have my lil man in my arms :hugs: im soooooooo excited!!!

    Good luck with the induction. On the positive side it must make it easier to plan if you know when he is going to arrive.

    Ive got hereditary spherocytosis, which basically means my red blood cells are the bloody wrong shape and break up and die off quicker than they should, making me anaemic.

    i actually thought my anaemia would be the reason they induced me because although bubs is spot on for growth development so far, they ahve said he may stop growing or losing weight towards the end. But it actually because when my red blood cells die off they release bilirubin (everyones does) into my blood, so obviously, i have way more of this in my blood because more of my cells die.

    my condition is rare-ish and they dont know if high bilirubin levels can cause problems later on in pregnancy and labour. sorry thats a lot of waffling!!

    Just out of interest, has anyone else got this or even heard of it?!!
