Tomorrow I have my appointments with the blood and pain meds specialists. Hopefully I will get some good news about my platelets. I really don't want them to drop any more and I hope the stuff I've been doing plus whatever they suggest to do will help increase them.
I also have to say that I was very surprised (and impressed) by my OB today. She is so awesome. She didn't push an internal examination (I asked for it), she didn't pressure me about attempting to do a membrane sweep and, in fact, she was the one that stated (after the exam was done) that it was not a good idea to do one at 1cm dilated because the body wasn't ready yet. And she expressed her support about me wanting to have non-drug pain management strategies during labour. I REALLY hope she's on call when I go into labour! It would be great to end this journey with her there.
Well, that's it for pregnancy-related stuff. I know I have neglected to write a whole lot...it seems like my brain can only focus on one thing (yep, you guessed it...having this baby!!!).
But everyone is doing well. The kiddos are growing and continue to be a source of joy and happiness as well as frustration (which is totally normal with a 5 and 2 year old!). They say the funniest things sometimes I I seriously don't know where they come up with this stuff! They are both really excited for the baby to come. Even Isaac is seeming to understand...he sometimes comes up to my belly, kisses it and says, "Baby come out now!" I am looking forward to seeing them welcome their little sister into our family.
Today is our wedding anniversary. Eight years. Crazy how long it's been, but it doesn't feel like eight years. Awesome! We went out to dinner yesterday and had a great time. I love that Ken is my best friend. I can tell him anything. He knows me through and through and I am so beyond happy to be his life partner.
My belly is now asking for food. So I will go and fulfill that request! Hopefully the next update will be about me going into labour!
