Thanks. The report they sent my doctor actually said the placenta is adjacent to the cervix. So he said that means it isn't over it at all, just right up to the edge. He didn't say if I still have to be on pelvic rest and restricted activity or not and I forgot to ask until he was already gone on to the next patient. So I left a note with the nurse to have him call. I hope not, but if I do, I'll survive. I dont know about dh though!! He did say it is quite likely that it will be up and away from the cervix completely by next month when I have another ultrasound. They also got me a pregnancy support belt ordered while I was there (they totally failed on that last month!)and it will be delivered to my house in a couple of weeks. That will help relieve some of the awful pelvic pain I've been having. Then I went to Target and finished registering for little things I need for the baby. Since its been so long, it's like I'm starting all over and everyone keeps asking where I'm registered.

We're going on week 9 of pelvic rest here. I'm dying.

Re: Pregnancy After Loss (Febuary & March)

Had my 34 week appointment today.
Of course I just complained of itchy, contractions, and headaches. She offered to check me, but I declined.
The medical assistant said I'll start checks at 36wk, but I think I'll decline then too. I might wait until week 38. I'm one of those mama's that dilate yet just walk around like I'm tight shut. Dilation means NOTHING me. Only until my water breaks do I do into real labor, other wise I just contract until the cows come home.
Even in labor, my last 2 deliveries I went from 5cm to delivery in 30min or less.

We're only on week four, going on five. If I wasn't pregnant, I probably wouldn't care. When I am pregnant the hormones run wild and I'm like teenage boy, if you know what I mean. My dh has way more self control than me at this point!!

I told my IF neighbor today. I was worried about how to tell her, since we've toasted multiple times to "families of three" (she has a daughter through adoption), and she screamed, then cried, then just held me in freezing 23 degree weather. We have plans for breakfast this weekend.

Today was my 9 week scan. It's the first time it's been all good news, and I could see baby wiggling around in there dancing a hula, and I've been sobbing ever since. I think today is the first day ive allowed myself to think this *might* end in a baby. 21 pills, 3 injections daily, and a team of three different doctors monitoring me weekly are keeping this baby cooking right now. Through God, of course. We are one week closer.

35 weeks and feel like crap! I'm grateful to be pregnant, but it's hard to enjoy it right now.
My midwife wants to induce early because of my antibodies, but there is this part of me that doesn't want to do it earlier than the original date.
She wants to strip my membranes to hopefully get my body moving.
My itching is back full blown too, so things just suck over here!!!!!

Oh yikes! Hoping it gets at least a little better.

Not much going on here other than minor stupid stuff that shouldn't bother me.

I told my boss and small team of 5 at my newish (in July) job. They were very interested in all the medicine behind the continued baby baking, and asked how I was holding up. My boss kept running after me all day asking how I was doing. I kinda felt like she thought I could blow up any minute! Very supportive though.

Perhaps most surprising, though, was a coworker who openly made fun of me back when we struggled to conceive my son (I worked with her at my old job- we both got hired at this new place) who asked how I was doing today. I cringed, told her I was doing well. Then she says that she's seen all my Facebook posts about my losses, she's so very sorry, and had I idea I had gone through so much- that it really sucks. She asked how Chicago went (she knew I was seeing an immunologist/specialist) and I told her the doc was helping me bake a kid, I was 10 weeks along. Rather than get excited (like most people) she grabbed my arm and asked how that was going, concerned. I told her I was monitored with u/s weekly by 3 doctors, took 25 pills and 3 injections a day. Rather than tell me "it will all be ok" (which gets rather annoying when you know it may not), she just said "that must all be very overwhelming for you right now". That was singularly the best conversation I have ever had about this baby and prior losses, and it came from someone I least expected it. It meant something.

Anyway, that's my update. I'm getting big, clearly showing at just shy of 10 weeks, eating everything in sight now thanks to prednisone, and drinking an oceans worth of water a day. I'm bloated by bedtime, but it is SOOO much better than heaving over a toilet all day!

Thanks ladies, for being my sounding board and understanding.
