Today's appointment put a RUSH on things, so for the rest of this week I have to focus on getting things tied off at work and make sure I have the essentials all worked out for Ron's arrival. I have so many other things I want to say/share before he makes his appearance, so I won't be gone for long. Of course I'll be behind on reading, but I promise to catch up!
Short gist of it: my last day at work will be Friday. Holy crap. I plan on working from home (where I'll be back on modified bed rest) as long as I can, but that's really only about 3 weeks. We will have another u/s next week to check on his growth/stats. Then at 36 weeks, my doc plans on doing an amnio to check if little Ron is mature-and if so, he's comin' out then. He feels there is too big a risk at this point of hemorrhaging and with possible clotting/bleeding issues (family history as well as my own medical stuff) he isn't taking any risks. If he's not mature at 36 weeks, I will be given steroids and checked the following week.
So wow. Feeling a lot of different emotions right now. Im nervous about him coming early-but I need to trust my doctor-he's kept me on the straight and narrow up to this point. We're just so thankful for close monitoring and the knowledge of how to prepare to bring this blessing into our lives.
Be back soon...
