Pretty much business as usual... Especially since I am still working (even though my employer is trying to force me onto FMLA), and am not a bed rest risk yet. The only thing I cant do anymore is run calls for my firehouse (not that I would want to pg anyways, even if I werent high risk!) and eat things with high levels of Vitamin K. That is going to change as I progress further into my pg Im sure, but for now its still pretty much normal from the outside. Its just the worry and the personal changes and steps that I go through now.
Just don't push yourself because you are special
at least I think so[/b]
Thanks! I am definitely taking it easy, but I think thats more due to just being worn out after creating life all day, plus badgering prospective clients, LOL! I get the lazies once I get home from my cushy office job, hehee!!
i really want a home birth but wont happen with my clotting disorder, I cant even use a birthing center instead. Some doctors wont treat me, sending me to a high risk guy. I'm searching right now for a competent ob who will let me birth as peacefully as possible given my restrictions instead of treating my birth like a crisis in the making
No midwife would touch me for fear of losing their licence. But I have still managed to have quite a few natural births[/b]
my 1st was an utter disaster. I went naturally pushed for 45 minutes then was threatened with a csection. I refused so they told me to get an epidural or they would no longer be able to treat me basically. My second was "natural" except for the induction part and was awesome. My 3rd was "natural" but the jerk kept turning on pitocin and leveling threats at me - it was just not good. I am leaving their practice over this one doctor which is an utter shame considering how much I love the other doctors. They have this cruddy policy which says you get whoever is on call, you have no choice in who treats you in the hospital.
I feel like a guinea pig while I am treated here locally. When they do my ultrasounds, they put all the screens in the office on my scan so the fellows and interns can get a chance to see this rare lung lesion (CCAM) and a fetal lung shunt. When we come out of the office, we see everyone looking and whispering. Many people are really nice to us because we at the hospital once or twice a week so I guess we do feel special in a way. Sometimes we feel rushed through our appointments because our doctors here know we need to go back to PA for delivery/treatment and they seem to want me to get to PA already (always asking me when I am leaving).
