*deep breath*... ok, another update.<br><br>
Wednesday I started to bleed, not just spot... the past couple of days it's been on and off bleeding and contractions. Sometimes it's like they were never there, and then they'll start again. I am resting and just trying to stay busy with school and keep my mind off of it because I want to stay as positive as I can.<br><br>
Thursday I had my ultrasound. I was very unsure about going, but in the end even though the ultrasound itself wasn't a great experience (the tech was not great at all, absolutely zero bedside manner) everything that I had predicted before the ultrasound was accurate so it actually made me feel more confident in my ability to know my body and my baby. The baby was in the position I thought and even facing where I thought that he/she would be (I suspected posterior because of my contractions), my placenta was on the same side that I thought it was.<br><br>
I will get the full report sometime this week. All he'd tell me was that my baby was alive (thanks, I knew that going in...) so I will have to wait until this coming week for any details on anything that they may or may not have found. I am keeping my fingers crossed for everything to keep going along with an inside baby.<br><br>
I'm only 17 days from 24 weeks. If/when I make it that far I will go to a hospital an hour away from here where I delivered my son. They have high level NICU facilities. So that is my first goal... 24 weeks, and then after that we'll go from there.<br><br>
Sending good thougths to the rest of the Mamas here. I am sorry if I am not around much... lately I've been needing to stay away from pregnancy/baby related stuff much of the time because it gets a little overwhelming when I think about all the whatifs. I try to focus on the positive... feeling baby move, and just distract myself through the negative. I'm taking it day by day right now.<br><br>
