well--- i am thinking my BP is going to go wacky again, so i foresee being on bld pressure meds again.....which if that prevents pre-e, then i'm all about it.(the meds)
I have GD again, so i'm really hoping with the diet and excercise things will go okay - and that this baby won't need to spend anytime in nicu - the challenge is really watching and counting carb points....i eat realitively healhty, it's just i hate counting and keeping track of things and poking my fingers 4x a day....and due to all the bleeding in the 1st trimester, i'm at higher risk to have preterm labor - so i'm freaking out about that....i'm hoping that it won't be an issue and i just want to get through Thanksgiving...i did have my DD 2wks early, so i would imagine this one will not be 40wks either....
Nov FET- BFP!!
Olivia Evelyn Teodora 7/16/11 9lbs 10oz, 20in
April FET - BFP
My DECEMBER 2013 SNOWBUNNY is a GIRL!
I don't really have anything to compare to but the things I'm worried about are NTDs (which we will test for in a couple weeks) and GD (just because I have a bad history with sugar intake and my mom's diabetic)
Roxi whats NTD?
Im forseeing something going weird. Trinity I had pre-e ended up on bedrest for 2 days till I had her I also had group b strep. Taylor I had gestational. Sydney I had high bp. So not sure what could happen this week.
We're extra nervous about the NTD's because DH has a Chiari Malformation in his brain and Chiari has a high incidence of occurring with spina bifida and tethered cords. Unfortunately because the skull doesn't harden until after birth Chiari is not something that can be detected in utero.
Biggest challenge = all my blood sugar control issues that start in the 2nd tri.
Next biggest challenge = keeping it together at school and being able, both mentally and physically, to work til the last day, then go immediately back 2 wks later....and yes, it has to be this way bc to our parents at our church school, I am the school, since we are so small. Soooo, can't afford issues with parents, tuition, etc there. At least baby will be going back with me though, not to daycare or anything...that is a comfort.
So, there you have it!
My biggest challenge with be remaining calm and not stressing. My last appointment really helped comfort me but I am guessing I will probably have a few more anxiety attacks before the end of the pregnancy.
