Thank you so much for the lovin' ... so good to know I'm not alone.
I do have a clue as to why I felt so crappy yesterday besides the issue with my gums... I now have the "stomach bug". Yep... and *ALL* that comes with it iykwim? My spirits are up though
I feel better emotionally today even though I have this blinding headache and the "upset stomach".
So my midwife came today! First visit since I was previously doing an UP. Welp, no protein in my urine YIPPEEEEE! She did a blood draw for a cbc and a hapatic (sp?) profile to check liver function and all the other junk that goes along with PIH or Preeclampsia. She feels good about things but I will be doing dual care starting soon with a practice about an hour away that backs her clients up in cases like mine. Now, for the kicker... not just because of the BP. WE HEARD 2 HEARTBEATS!!!! I also measured 26 possible 27. Not too majorly over but with all my other classic symptoms- high bp, fetal movement @ 9 weeks, sever morning sickness unlike any of my other pregnancies... etc She feels like it's a good idea. The bottom line is that no matter what when it comes down to the end and what will happen according to my history from here on out it's entirely up to us and her, which I love. This is not new for her so I am confident.
Depending on the outcome of my blood work and the next few prenatals I may go ahead with a midwife attended "UC". Not what I originally wanted but I have to go with what I feel safe with. Won't decide though yet. I'm still holding out for a good outcome with the BP... and now I'm VERY excited to confirm twins for sure with an ultrasound. The heart beats were remarkable! One was a little faster than the other so it was SO easy to hear the difference in the 2. All of us in the room were shocked. One was on the far right side and the other was on the far bottom left near my pelvis.
Midwife thinks I have a localized infection in my gums which is causing the swollen glands, white count was elevated in the urine dip... so still treating that with TTO and watching it. I was up last night running a fever of 100- not too bad but bad enough to make it an ugly nights sleep. BP is higher than before... but she wouldn't tell me the number. Smart lady
All in all I am not as nervy as before... so that is a good thing.
Going to lay down now... blech
