  • Hi!
     
    I just wanted to post a little update on us. We have been without a computer for a couple of months and its been killing me....lol.

    I went for my 32 week appt this morning. Ive been feeling great and I'm finally beginning to get a little nervous that its so close now (my last 2 babies were induced at 36 weeks due to Hellp syndrome.) My weight gain thus far has been 13lbs but the Dr has limited my work schedule to half of what I usually work with NO heavy lifting which will be darn near impossible working with ICU patients in a hospital. My platelet count has been dropping the past few weeks, just like with my last pregnancy so its looks like I've once again begun developing HELLP syndrome with this pregnancy. We also did an ultrasound today as the DR couldn't locate the heartbeat with the doppler and on Ultrasound the baby is measuring well, and weighs about 4lbs 7 ozs, which she says is a good/average size for 32-33 weeks. I failed my 1 hour glucose test
     
    , but passed the 3 hour test, which is good news. I got my Rhogam shot at my last appt, so I'm feeling ready to go despite the fact that nothing here is ready for a new baby yet....lol. And Talon really thinks this baby is bringing his OWN mommy with him when he comes....lol

    So thats my update. Just hoping to make it as far as possible with this little baby. I'll work on posting belly pics in the next couple of days.
