Part of the reason I love to blog is that someday I will look back on my life right now and it will be a complete blur. I barely have time to think most days so forming memories is laughable. Blogging will hopefully allow me some retrieval cues so this part of my life has some concreteness. In that vain I am *trying* to make an effort to write about my pregnancy. I am certainly not pouring over it, taking pictures, logging symptoms and changes, like I did with the girls. Instead I am trying like mad to jot anything down that is memorable... when possible. :D
I have a few upcoming appointments:
Tomorrow - Echocardiagram for baby. Doing IVF slightly increases the risk of a heart issue so my MFM doc insists on an echo. Easy enough.
Next Tuesday - 3-D ultrasound. This one is geared at getting a better view of the babies brain AND the placenta previa. Because he is SO low in the pelvis (and I have tons of c-section scar tissue) a good view was not possible. We're hoping the pics are better and that he cooperates a little better.
In three weeks - My glucose test. I am praying like mad to pass the 1 hour. I was insulin dependent with the girls and I am hoping that was because I was carrying twins. The high risk doc thinks (based on finger prick tests he has me doing) that I am NOT diabetic!
In six weeks - Schedule the c-section and begin NST's.
I can hardly believe how quick this pregnancy is going. With the girls I felt like I was gestating for years and years. With this one it feels like a matter of weeks. I feel like I better not blink because if I do he will be here and I will be far from ready.
