Bumpy ride....

We've had an eventful week. I had a high risk OB appointment on Tuesday. The triage nurse, Gina, was so nice. She was very helpful at calming my nerves. I was a little anxious because that was my first appointment as a transfer patient. I really liked my old OB but we all agreed that it would be best to go to one office for all my appointments and ultrasounds.

We did the standard stuff, weight, urine check, blood pressure, etc. Then the doctor came in. She asked if we had any questions and I asked her if at any of our previous ultrasounds if they have been able to see any lung tissue. I know that its hard to see but they've never told us about it at all. Her words were, "we wouldn't be able to because of the liver being up there." Ok, wait a minute. Adam and I both looked as if she slapped us in the face. I asked her what she was talking about. She said that Dr. M the doctor that spent 2 minutes with us at the last US had put in her report that the liver was now in the chest cavity. I immediately got upset because Dr. M told us that Baylee was very stable and that nothing had changed from our previous US, it was the stomach and small intestine and then she practically ran out of the room.

Dr. S asked if we wanted her to go look at the pictures from last week. We did. She came back and said to her it looked like bowel not the liver but she couldn't be sure until my next US on the 22nd. I left very upset. Still not sure what to think about it all. I just know at our next US there are going to be a LOT of questions asked.

I woke up yesterday morning having horrible cramping. I called the after hours nurse and she said to reduce activity and monitor it and if it got worse to come in. At 4 I called again and they said to go to the hospital and get checked. About 5 hours later I came home. They checked me, I was about 1 cm but very high. Baylee's heart rate was great and she was so active. They said the cramping was fluid building up again. I just have to deal with it.

On a happy note, Tyler won his class spelling bee. He gets to go to the school spelling bee next Friday. We are very proud!
