She had to have an emergency scan today (not really sure why) but they say baby has rather a lot of fluid around him/her and she also got told she has GD. The baby is already a lot larger than expected for gestation. Baby is due in March and they don't think Natalie (my cousin) will carry to term. She is quite a small girl, not quite 5 foot and they have said a caesarean section is looking likely too, there is hardly any room left for baby to grow nevermind to turn to get into the "engaged" position.

Please pray that her pregnancy passes without too many hitches!

Natalie gave birth to her baby BOY (vaginally) at 6:30 this morning (he was due friday), she was in labour for just under 24 hours. He weighed 7lbs 11oz and his first name is Bradley. Thats all I know for the time being!

Yay, Well Done Natalie!

Well just to update you all, Natalie was rushed to hospital this morning with very high blood pressure, she could be having her baby real soon, she's 28 weeks now.

Someone please send some prayers!

Thanks ladies,

Well Natalie is doing better at the moment, baby is still inside thankfully. She has a midwife round to the house every other day to take her blood pressure, sometimes its up, other days it down. They have found a little protein in her urine which they are keeping an eye on and the GD is being managed well too. She has been told there is now a good chance she could deliver naturally, baby isn't quite as big as first thought.

Thankyou very much for your prayers!

Well Natalie is due on Friday, she has done so well keeping baby inside.
She had a membrane sweep yesterday, is 2 cm dilated and has been having some pains today.
Unfortunately she fell down a whole flight of stairs at her moms house today but tightly hugged her belly so the only person injured was herself, she's black & blue and the midwife was called as a precautionary and baby is just fine. baby was estimated at being 6lbs 15oz about 2 weeks ago so hopefully she won't have a huge baby on her hands. Natalie is only 4foot 12 so she is quite tiny.
I think they intend to induce her if baby isn't here by Friday, we are all so excited, she decided to be in team green so noone knows what she's having.

Thanks for all your prayers ladies!
