The Bump Baby Registry
Now is the perfect time to start your Baby Registry!START A REGISTRY
I was wondering if anyone has been in a similar situation. I have only gone in for one doctor visit so far and she has said that there is a very good chance of it happening again, it's just a matter of when it is going to happen. If any other preemie moms out there could share with me their experiences. I am mentally determined to carry as long as I can, but of course sometimes there are things that you just cant help.
Re: DS born @ 27wks due to preeclampsia, pregnant with #2 and due 08/17/15
As of right now I am seeing my normal OBGYN and then in about 2 weeks I have my first appointment with the perinatalogist. I will be about 10 weeks along at that point.
I started my 2 week appointments at 24w and I also see the mfm (maternal fetal medicine) doctor often. Saw them at 21w and I'll see them again at 28w and 30w.
Ok, so the MFM is the same as the perinatalogist. And much easier to spell, lol. They suggested that I may end up getting progesterone shots every week, or maybe even a weekly 24 hour urinalysis to check protein levels. (for the preeclampsia). I guess I will find out in about 2 weeks.
Hmm. I may like having a nurse do it better, as my husband would take too much joy in being able to stab me on a weekly basis.
These aren't that bad though. No real side effects that I've noticed.
My OB has talked to me about hospitalizing me the last few weeks and having me stop work. I've actually been having terrible cramps for 3 days now, so I have a feeling that'll happen sooner than later.
