Hi, I'm Claire - mommy to Beth, Matt, Carrie, and someone new in July. My pregnancy is considered high-risk because all of my babies have been premature. Carrie was our earliest at 27 weeks 5 days. They are all healthy and doing well now. Carrie will be two at the end of the month.
I'm 13 weeks with baby #4 and so far so good. Right now I am feeling great and it is business as usual. I know that will change though. Probably by 20 weeks I'll be slowing down, I could have to go on bedrest, there will be extra appointments, etc. My kids are worth it...I'm just trying to prepare myself for all of that.
I had my first appointment today. It went really well, I talked to the doctor for a long time and even got an ultrasound. My baby was measuring right on target and was super active. I loved hearing the hb. Hopefully I will find out the sex next time, I can't wait!
From now on it is every two weeks for me, plus some extra appointments with the high-risk doctors. I was gone three hours today and left my kids with a neighbor. That was nice of her to help me out, but she's busy with three kids of her own and I know I need another plan. On to interviewing babysitters I guess...
