Let me begin by saying that im sorry for being a bit MIA - i was feeling a little depressed...
Well, I had my bi-weekly CL scan today & it went from 2.0 two weeks ago to 2.67 today I was ecstatic!!! I asked my OB about the likelihood of being able to go back to work & she asked "Do you really want to?" I told her that I would prefer to never go back, but I was worried about the little bit of time I had remaining for after Annalise makes her arrival. She said that she wanted me to take the remainder of this week & go back in next Monday- then she would reaccess whether I should go back on bed rest. So I get to go back to work on Monday!!!! She said I would have to just go sit at my desk and only get up to get food and then it would be back home and directly to bed. I know I should take it more slowly, but I think the stress about how to come up with money to pay bills after I ran out of vacation time was beginning to wear on me. So, she is weighing in at about one and a half pounds
my OB is also going to be giving me the steroid shots Monday & Tuesday of next week... I'm still trying to determine if that's a good thing or not
It's probably a good precaution just to do it. If I was in your position, I think I would feel safer knowing that if things changed, she had had the shots. Have they given you any negatives to doing it?
glad you lengthened up and that you can get back to work and stop stressing about the bills. sounds like you have a good doc so just take it easy like she said and hopefully the good news will keep coming.
I agree about the shots. After my scare with the ffn test, I am still not able to get the shot and its a big stress for me right now. Atleast if you got it, and something did change, you won't have to worry about that.
