Tad's heart is still beating on at 162, so I'm going to guess that the heartrate old wives' tale is just that... a tale.
Apparently at 32, having gone through fertility treatments, and having placenta previa makes one a high-risk pregnancy, which qualifies me for the fabulous gift of being encouraged to take all the blood test screenings.. AND....... MORE APPOINTMENTS!
My placenta previa is still "complete", which means
- I won't be going to Birmingham in two weeks for work, and
- I don't feel guilty about asking my male co-workers to help me move furniture and lift boxes as we complete our work move next week.
I do have another fabulous "issue" to add on top of all the others: Strep B in my cha cha. I'm going to blame it on all the times I had strep until I had my tonsils out at age 21. All it means is that if the baby is going to come the "normal" way, I'll have to have antibiotics via IV during delivery so the baby doesn't get sick. This is apparently really common.
