7 weeks 4 days.
I had my 8 week ultrasound a few days earlier due to scheduling.
I do have another 8 week appointment with my high-risk OB next Wednesday.
|next wednesday it'll look more like a baby and less like a blob|
Heart rate measuring at 157, but the little pearl wouldn't stretch out to get a full measurement.
Oh well, just grateful for that little flicker on the screen.
As of Monday, they are decreasing my hormones in hopes to start weaning me off.
I will decrease my current 4 estrogen patches to 3 and be done with my nightly progesterone suppository. (YAY!)
Then more blood on Wednesday morning at CCRM to see if I am holding my own.
Going to need some prayers for that.
I have never been able to get stable in my hormones on my own.
And the bleed.....that little tiny 5mm bleed (sac separation) -
it isn't any larger!
Prayers are working.
But it isn't any smaller.
Need more prayers.
Need more prayers.
The nurse recommended one thing...
to take it easy.
Aren't I already doing that?
No, she said.
I need to REALLY TAKE IT EASY.
No lifting (kids, dogs, grocery bags, laundry baskets, vacuums up the stairs).
No pushing (grocery carts, kids on swing, dogs off the bed, vacuums).
No pulling (vacuums, grocery carts, dogs on leash).
Good thing Jason is around a bit more next week.
Bed rest without the bed.
So now you can all hold me accountable.
And hopefully help me exercise Penny a bit.
Not really worried about P, she is not herself these days.
Maybe go to Costco with me.
She said if I can do this, for at least a week (until the next ultrasound) I can really give myself/my body a chance to heal this bleed.
If I heal this bleed, I can a greater chance of getting through all of this a bit more unscathed and possibly getting to be somewhat active during this pregnancy.
Short walks are allowed, but hoping to add swimming and maybe yoga in.
i sure hope so!
