I know that drama follows me...most of the time it is funny and random.... But can I just get a normal, non- dramatic pregnancy here!?!?! That's right we are officially 11 weeks pregnant and it has been plagued by DRAMA. At five weeks we had some problems then at 8 weeks more of the same problems. Can I get a placenta that can not be torn. Can I get a placenta that has no clots. And finally official diagnosis...a marginal placenta previa. A irritated placenta has caused all the problems. No working (thus very poor), cleaning (which I really love to do, and no maid meets my standards), No walking long distances, No picking up your children (yeah right my kids are barely 3 and 1). So needless to say just a pain!!! I have already had 5 sonograms for this child of God. This precious little thing has had a heartbeat of 175 every time and the doctor stated it was perfect and had no idea of this was even going on...just enjoying life in a jacked up placenta. I am currently on the hunt for a not so stressful ICU position so that I won't be ever poorer after this child is born. I am currently nauseous ALL the time from all the extra progesterone that I am taking. I also am currently so stinking tired that I am having to re-wash two loads of clothes because they sat on the floor so long. The prayer for this baby is that the placenta will stop being irritated within 8 weeks and become not placenta previa or else I go on strict bed rest for 17 weeks and deliver by c-section at 37 weeks. I think there is only like a 5-10% chance of the previa not correcting itself by 20 weeks but going on track record I am a little nervous...not such good luck with the pregnancy nurse curse. So we are going to pray for a normal placenta and a healthy baby and thank God everyday for this third child.
However I did get clearance from Dr. Riegel to go to the Texas A&M and ASU Game this weekend with good friends from McKinney and from college. Can't wait. I will however get the special privilege of riding the elevator to my seat....one nice advantage of jacked up placenta.
