First I want to say, thank you so much for coming to this blog. I really appreciate the love and support. Welcome to the new members that have and are walking that horrible path of infertility and pregnancy loss. I know how hard it is and hope that you will all be able to hold your own little one soon.
I just got done meeting with my new doctor. He is a Perinatologist, the uber high-risk OB. He is a total sweetheart and I think I am going to like him a lot. We talked about my past history and treatment plans and he seems to be on board with what I have done in the past and we decided to continue in the same manner.
They did an ultrasound and the baby is measuring perfectly at 6 weeks 5 days. PERFECTLY! And there was the most beautiful little flutter right in the middle of that tiny little baby. *HUGE SIGH OF RELIEF* HUGE!!!!
I will start my Lovenox injections tonight after I go pick them up from the Pharmacy (black and blue tummy, here I come.) I will continue on with my prenatal, baby aspirin and folic acid. Because of the Rh Antibody he will start seeing me weekly at 18 weeks and we will do ultrasounds on the baby to see if it is distressed. Basically we are checking to see if the baby becomes anemic. When a mother has an Rh Antibody my blood cells begin to attack the baby (if the baby is Rh+) so the baby then becomes anemic. The way to treat this is to transfuse the baby with a negative blood type. It is all done inutero which is just simply amazing.
Sadly, he did say that if my Rh Titer was over 1:8 I cannot go to Indonesia because I will be about 20 weeks along and he will start testing before that. I already KNOW my titer is higher than that so the trip is off. :( *Sniff Sniff* Oh well, more money to spend here. HAHAHA :)
I asked about my jewelry and if I would be able to continue working with some of my techniques. He knows A LOT and apparently, I am the first to ever present this one to him. So he said he will do some research and get back to me. But I have done some of my own research and I think it would be best to play it safe and I won't be doing much soldering. I may get some non-lead bearing enamels and continue to work with those. He thought that should be okay.
I asked about the delivery and he said we are shooting for 37 weeks with a mature amnio. But if I do the same that I did last time and have contractions that can't be stopped then we deliver at that time.
He said he wasn't worried about the number and types of c-sections that I have had and because I am healthy he isn't worried about my age as a factor of anything (I will be 34 next Friday.)
At the end of the appointment he gave me a great big hug. I LOVE THIS GUY!
When we were there we saw a little tiny baby that was probably 2 or 3 weeks old.... now I am getting excited. :) I am just fighting my head and the fears that linger.
Now if only the ALL DAY Sickness would just go away and leave me alone. :) Oh well, if it means I am pregnant and things are going smoothly, I guess I will take it and enjoy it as it is most likely the last time I will ever do it.
Thanks again everyone for the prayers, love and support.
