I am still here...still on bed rest...no new news. I went to my OB today hoping for some additional information but it was a big fat waste of time. They didn't do another US so I have no idea what is going on in there. The heart beat was about 150 today. I am still praying that my baby is growing and doing ok. I have a level 2 US scheduled for next Tuesday. I guess I will keep laying here hoping everything is ok. I am still pretty nauseous and on a limited diet. I'm actually loosing weight on bed rest. I have to assume it's muscle weight. It does freak me out everytime I sneeze or throw up because I am worried about my placenta completely detaching.

I am so frustrated. This is not how I imagined my pregnancy. It's just not fair. I have to worry about the markers for Down Syndrome and worry about the abruption now. I just wish I could enjoy being pregnant for one day with no worries. Sorry for the rant but I just needed to get it out there.

Thank you all for the love and support you have shown me. I really needed it!

  1. I am so sorry that you are having to go through this. Those of us who suffer through infertility should at least be rewarded with uncomplicated and easy pregnancies. Unfortunately, it doesn't work out that way. I can only imagine how scared you are.
    I am definitely praying for you and your little one.

  12. Why could they not give you a quickie u/s?? So mean. And best rest is so tough, I know that! I had a schedule, mostly based on what was on TV, but it did make the days go faster. And I did a lot of online shopping!! Hang in there, the level 2 can't come soon enough.

  21. I have just read a few of your posts, and I am sorry that you have to endure this. My pregnancy was hell, and my baby was born at a bit over a pound. But she's okay and here and that was after being on bedrest nearly the entire pregnancy.

    I learned something about the blood tests. If something is going on with your placenta, then that might show high AFP levels, which might affect your result for Down Syndrome. All of my blood tests were horrible, then the amnio and then microarray tests showed no chromosomal abnormalities. That is when I learned about the placenta causing the results. Maybe ask your doctor about it. (They might not know. I have found OB's to not be nearly ad knowledgable ad perinatologists.

    Anyway, my pregnancy was wrought with fear and heartache but I have a tiny miracle on my hands. My blog became private once she was born, but I kept a detailed account of the horror of the pregnancy. Please tell me if you'd like to readit-It's always nice to see a story that turns out well. (She does have issues-but she is healthy and here :)

  22. One more thing...the pregnancy was bad from the beginning with a subchorionic hematoma (which caused the placenta issues we believe) but it really started going downhill at 19 weeks-so last April. I kept her in until 32 weeks.
