In really not fun news, I had a followup with my hematologist on Friday. She informed me that I have to go back on Lovenox shots for 6 weeks following the delivery. Talk about a buzz kill. I really thought I just had a few more weeks to go. I even tried to argue it since I've never had a blood clot and I was under the impression that I was only on Lovenox to keep the baby alive. She wasn't having it. She said since I'll still have so many hormones pumping through me, they have to be extra careful. And really, how do I argue with that? I certainly don't want to have a blood clot, and I don't want to not wake up one morning because I had a stroke or pulmonary embolism. So as much as I really really hate it, it is what it is. I scheduled a followup for the end of May with them so we can talk about future care. Sounds like my life will no longer be the same.
We met with a pediatrician today and we really liked her. She has a background in emergency medicine, so it sounds like she knows when to react and when to not overreact. We are on the same page for vaccines (pro vaccines) and other issues, and it seems like a good practice. She's a partner, too, so we don't have to worry about her leaving. It's nice to be able to cross that off the list. Now I need to schedule our classes with the hospital since we are less than seven weeks away.
Total Weight Gained: 21.2 lbs
Waist Size: 43.5 inches
Sleep: If I don't wake up sick, it's pretty decent. Although I'm still tired and probably will be for quite some time.
Most Exciting Moment: Seeing the baby's room come along.
Baby is the Size of a: Head of lettuce. They say over 4 pounds and 19 inches long, but we'll see what's really going on in the ultrasound next week.
Miss Anything? Energy, sleep, feeling good, sandwiches. Basically the same things I've been complaining about for the past 32 weeks!
