Ummm..... 31 weeks?!?!?!
Are you ready? Nervous?
I hope this LO bakes to FT!
Thanks, and I know, where did the time go?!!
I'm ready in the sense that we have everything we need except for a new carseat and some little stuff, but if LO comes now she wouldn't be needing that for a while anyway. I'm still hoping to make it to term, so we'll see what happens. It's absolutely crazy to think that with DD, she was here 3 weeks from this point in the pregnancy. Eep.
So things have been fairly uneventful this time around then? I'm sure you're being watched closely.
I feel like I've asked you this recently but are you still in Germany?
Yep, still in Germany, and I'm getting growth ultrasounds and cord notching checks every appointment. Last appointment there were a few warning signs of pre-e (seeing stars with occasional high BP readings and exaggerated reflexes), but thankfully nothing to provoke a diagnosis. But LO is measuring big and so far my BP has always come back down on its own, so it's just a waiting game. The MFM I spoke with said he doubted I'd go overdue because he thinks my placenta will crap out before then (not a literal translation ;-)), but I'm hoping to make it to 37 weeks, at least.
How are you doing? When I saw your re-intro on TTGP a while back, you said your cycles were still super short. Is that still the status quo or have you been going through any sorts of treatments to lengthen them?
kerrbear72:Pre-DS, I was Amenorrhea. Post-DS, I was hypermenorrhea. Go figure. I just got a hypothyroidism diagnosis and have been on meds for about 5 weeks now. No real changes yet but they take a long time to work. In the mean time, I just keep on praying :)
Weird. I mean, "they" say that pregnancy can completely change your cycles, but that's about as extreme a change as you can get! Are you ovulating in the hypermenorrhea but there's no real time for egg maturity or implantation, or is it also an annovulatory state? I know nothing about it. I hope the meds kick in and regulate things soon!
