The good news? Today I am officially in the 3rd trimester. 28 weeks pregnant. Only 12 weeks to go.
The bad news? My pregnancy is starting to take a turn for the "not easy"
I think I mentioned that I was scheduled for another ultrasound today to check on the previa.
The good news? The previa is moving, and I should be off travel and other restrictions.
More bad news? I'm not.
While Baby E looks good, my blood pressure was up almost 40 points over just a week ago. While it probably (hopefully) is just the heat and the fact that I am on antibiotics for a sinus infection, the doctor wasn't happy. I didn't have proteins in my sample, so pre-eclampsia should be out, but the doctor wants to be cautious.
I therefore had to leave some blood for testing for liver and other functions and those results will be back Friday.
Chant it with me: I will avoid bed rest. I will avoid bed rest.
And the cherry on the sundae? While Baby is measuring right on time (even a little below average size), my ute is not.
It's in fact measuring 36 weeks.
WebMD can't even diagnose that one.
I may just have a big ol' ute for a big ol' baby to grow into.
I may have developed fibroids during pregnancy.
I may be 52 weeks pregnant before this baby is born.
But what it does mean is that I'm now scheduled for either weekly or bi-weekly appointments, including ultrasounds for the rest of this pregnancy.
Hold off Baby E. We aren't ready to meet you yet.
But thanks for the new pictures?
