And I'm sad to say that I'm not passing quite as well as I'd hope.
Just wanted to stop in and give you guys a quick update on me and LO. I have been on here, but I just can't comment on too many threads, you'll understand why here in a minute.
So, in case you've forgotten about me (I know it's been a while) I'm working for a VBA2C with a very supportive dr and putting more effort into it than I did into my 4 years of high school
I've been having some back problems since before the pregnancy, but they have gradually gotten worse throughout the pregnancy. I'm now 29 weeks and I'm couch bound. I'm typing this while laying on the couch and I haven't been out of the house in 4 flippin days. I hear it's beautiful out *sigh* Anyway, the pain is so intense now. I keep thinking it can't get any worse and then it does. I got some Flexeril from the dr and it did nothing but make me so sleepy. Friday he prescribed me Tylenol 3 (w/ codeine). It's helping some. He's making me an appointment for an MRI, hopefully very soon!!! I don't even know what they're going to find or if they will be able to do anything so time will tell.
I also found out last week that I have GD and I have to see a specialist an hour away. Well, as of right now there's no way I can go to see her so I'm gonna have to talk to my dr about that tomorrow too.
I felt like I was giving up, but on Friday I had to ask my dr when the soonest he would do a c/s would be. I, in no way, intend to do it without a fight, but I honestly don't have much fight left in me and 11 more weeks to keep at it. He said 39 weeks or we could do an amnio at 37 weeks and if baby's lungs are okay then he would do it then. I feel like such a failure even asking him about a repeat c/s, but at this point I need to know that there is an option. I have been praying like crazy that God will not let it come to that.
I have still been trying to enjoy this part of the pregnancy where baby is really active and kicking a lot. This is usually my favorite time of pregnancy and I'm sad to say that this might have to be our last cause I can't do this again!
