So it has been a rough couple of weeks. Just when we thought the worst was behind us with the TTTS scare- I am now having bleeding issues. The good thing about this is there is something I can do about it- strict bed rest- with TTTS there was not anything I could do. I am previa and they were hoping my placenta would move up as my uterus grows- no such luck. I have bee in and out of the hospital a couple of times over the last few weeks and I was told next time they will keep me until delivery. I guess January 5th is as late as they will let me go and we will be lucky to get that far. BUT I really do not want to go too early.
I am on strict bedrest. My poor dh is having to do all the cooking, shopping, cleaning, painting the nursery, etc. I feel guilty as he is working hard and I am lounging! I an only get up for the bathroom and 1 shower a day. I am so afraid I will bleed again. I am afraid for my babies. However, they seem to be doing fine, thank goodness.
I do not want to sound ungrateful this really is not too much, I just have my moments! Oh also found out I have mild preclampsia and gest. diabetes! My GD I am controlling with diet and seem to be doing well. As far as the preclampsia- my blood pressure levels have been fine. I hate that they tested me the night I had a HUGE bleed- and was hospitalized...who wouldn't have blood pressure issues!
So I am going to try to be a better mh friend and figure out what is going on with everyone else! Hope you are doing well and there is lots of good news out there!
