So....last Thursday I got called into the boss' office and was sent home on administrative leave until I saw my Dr again and they wanted a letter that the Dr thought it is safe for me to continue to work. I had an episode of shortness of breath/dizziness and low blood sugar at work and they were "concerned". So....I was home Thurs-Mon when I had my appointment and slowly but surely the shortness of breat increased and I had a constant feeling of being suffocated in a way. By the time I got into the Dr on Monday just walking caused me to huff and puff. Dr. sent me striaght to Labor and Delivery and they did a million and one tests on me thinking I had a blood clot in my lungs. Twenty four hours later I was discharged with no explaination of why I have the shortness of breath and just told I have an arrythmia (abnormal heart rhythm) that I need to see a Cardiologist for. I go back to the Dr on Tuesday and she will determine then if I can go back to work. Which as horrible as I feel I have to do.
I feel like an emotional mess. I was starting to feel as though things were going to be on track by the time this little one arrived, but now I just don't know. I had put gifts for the kids on layaway for Christmas, which my husband had to go to the store and cancel today. I have pushed myself to death this pregnancy and just am still coming up short. I know everything in life is one step forward and 2 back, but I am TIRED!!!!
On top of everything else I am not going to be able to VBAC now either.....it is no longer safe. I agree with it, but it is still a kick in the teeth.
I know this baby is a blessing and a gift from God, I know that there is a plan for me and my family that maybe I just don't know yet...but I need a road map to atleast see that the end is in sight. Sorry to vent.
Hugs to you mama. I am sorry to hear that you are struggling and are overwhelmed with all of this at the moment. It will all work out as it is meant to...whatever comfort that is to you at this moment.
Thinking of you and sending you healing, peaceful and supportive thoughts
that is a lot to take in and handle- sounds like you have the right attitude to keep going though- i hope that you can surround yourself with supportive people and good feelings. hugs:)
Well I hope that they find out what's wrong. Hugs mama and hang in there. Just keep swimming!
Im so sorry! I hope you get some answers to why you are so short of breathe soon.
