I almost fell off of the exam table. Only 4 months ago 2 of the 4 doctors I spoke with, including one in my OB's practice, was suggesting a fetal reduction.
Not that any of us could have predicted the future. But wow.
I can only hope that things keep going well, although my stress is decreasing with regard as to whether the babies will survive to "what the heck do I know about raising children."
Also, my perception of pregnancy is changing. I am shifting from "oh, thank you, thank you I am still pregnant" to "OK, how many weeks until the C-section?"
I have been battling a recurrent bladder infection. Unfortunately, I don't have all the classical symptoms of a bladder infection (i.e. that burning sensation). My typical bladder infection involves nausea, frequent urges to pee, generally feeling poorly and being really, really worn out. Not too unlike being pregnant. So I'm not sure how long I've actually had this bladder infection. I am thinking for at least 2 or so weeks. Not that delivering the babies will prevent me from getting a bladder infection, but I think that maybe I will recognize it sooner. Kindly, a call to the OB's office led to a prescription for an antibiotic without having to go in that night for a urine sample. I did have to go in later though, as they just MUST have my pee.
In other symptoms (complaints), I am having trouble sleeping, although I am so exhausted. I also have alarming heartburn. Heartburn to the point that the acidic taste can actually make me throw up. Thank goodness that Zan.tac was invented. Otherwise, I would have to just eat chalk all day or something similar.
Well, that's all the complaining that I have on tap for today. I have some other things that I will hopefully get around to sharing with ya'll when I next post. Nothing too spectacular; just what's happening in my little world.
