So far so good! The prayers are working, thank you so much to everyone.
Today is day 5 and surprisingly the days have been going by fast and I’m no where near pulling my hair out. I have my computer here, so I’m able to work, feel productive and connected. I’ve had lots of visitors and my room is full of beautiful flowers, cards, magazines, snacks, books .. a Nintendo Ds.. the list goes on! The nurses are overwhelmed by the size of my 27″ Mac computer that has taken over my bedside.
I’m feeling good, not too sore from laying in bed.. and not bored. So far there is no sign of infection. I get blood drawn every morning to test my white blood cell count and it’s been in the normal range. I have no pain in my abdomen and I feel normal. I can feel the baby move throughout the day and get to hear his heart beat often.. it’s hanging around the 150s which is normal. He likes to punch and kick when they try to listen, I think he feels his roof is caving in! He must be somewhat feisty, which I’m grateful for.. since he needs to be strong with me through this. I’m drinking a lot of water, between 60 and 80 oz per day. Since I’m off the IV drip, I want to make sure I’m hydrated and hopefully be providing enough fluid for the baby to pee and replenish the amniotic fluid.
I got to see my two Doctors this morning and had a quick ultra sound done. Everything looked good. There was some pockets of fluid here and there and the Dr seemed pleased. I will have an extensive ultra sound on Friday with the specialist. I have great Doctors and Nurses taking care of me. I’m really enjoying the opportunity to know them.
I’ve found in situations like this attitude is key. I am feeling positive and happy and have a real peace about the whole situation. I don’t feel stressed or anxious which I know is a great help to the baby.
People have asked me if anyone is taking care of Charm?
Well my good friends Sofie and Grace stopped out by her yesterday to groom and exercise her for me. They even sent pictures and a video!
I haven’t jumped Charm like that for a long time! She got a good workout 🙂
