I know that none of you really know me that well yet b'cos I'm new.. but I will fill you in on some things and on whats got me so worried..
Ok, my situation is sorta weird and the whole pregnancy was a pleasant surprise for us Funny story is I didn't know I was pregnant back in June.. and I had surgery scheduled for July 1st 2011 to have my gallbladder removed.. I went through all the blood tests and urine tests to check for anything that might be wrong b4 surgery.. well.. as far as I know all tests came back ok & neg for pregnancy only cos Dr never said anything to us.. so we just assumed all was good and went ahead with surgery.. Two weeks after surgery I started having mood swings something fierce lol which led me to take a HPT and got a BFP I called the lab where I had tests done before surgery.. & the lab person said.. when I called them to check with them after getting a positive home preg. test (after surgery & recovering) on July 14th 2011 that blood work never showed me being preg. (I was thinking it was positive but they we're trying to cover their arses cos they allowed me to go through surgery without noticing ya'know?) only took the HPT cos I hadn't started my period yet and I was having monster mood swings and knew that something was up cos I never get this irritated as I was at this point lmao didn't know if it was b'cos of recovering from surgery or what.. lol.. so the preg. was a big surprise for us.. that's for sure.. heh I'm just glad we caught it early enough b'cos I have PCOS which already makes it hard to conceive and also I need to take progesterone suppositories to even carry a preg. to term... I would have just had another mc without realizing it.. thinking it was my period just showing up late.. lol sheesh.. I'm a firm believer that everything happens for a reason and that this baby was meant to be here..
Anyhow, now here I am at 23w/1d According to my Prenatal Diagnosis & Reproductive Genetics Maternal and prenatal specialist Dr... our Appoint. was yesterday 11-15-2011 and he's telling me our baby isn't growing that the baby's abdomen its measuring smaller than its supposed to be at this gestational age.. He said our baby is in the 11th% percentile he was trying to explain it but this really has me very puzzled.. as all the tests and everything else has been all good.. I'm extremely worried I don't know what to think.. I tried to ask as many questions as I could think of them at the time but I guess since I'm still confused on this whole thing I didn't ask enough questions *shrugz* now I'm just worried b'cos I really dunno what this all means.. he prescribed me 3 different medications and he wants me back in two weeks for another U/S.. I feel kinda shytE b'cos I'm still confused it really is kinda hard to think straight under the circumstances at the time.. both my other pregnancies we're pretty normal accept for me going into early labor with DD at 7mo preg. with them giving me something to stop contractions 5 different times w/several trips to the ER... ending with her making it to 37weeks emergency c-sec b'cos I got really sick with the flu which ended up affecting my liver which inflamed at the point to where it wasn't safe for her or me.. it had caused her heartrate to jump up to 200 at one point after they had given me antibiotics to help my liver and so they decided to deliver me at that point.. so within 30mins they had me prep'd for surgery and delivered before I could even blink.. it seemed lol she was a healthy 6lb 2oz baby girlie with a touch of jaundice.. other than that she was great!!
Has anyone else went through this, with the dr's telling you that your baby isn't growing? and that their abdomen is smaller than its supposed to be? The Dr seemed concerned but not panic'd so dunno if I'm worrying too much or not enough lol sheesh.. I'm going to be a sorry mess until then.. ya'know? God.. I hate waiting games.. ugh!! well.. I do hope everyone else is doing good and everything's going ok with their pregnancies, as I am hoping and praying for the best for mine.. bye for now
