Hey y'all, it's been awhile since I've updated about my pregnancy. I decided to start keeping a blog about it since having to describe in detail the ups and downs to friends and family was getting tiresome, but I realized I haven't said anything about it here. The link's in my sig if you want the total 411.
Yesterday, I turned 28 weeks and had my last appointment with the perinatologist! My bleed measured 11cm (about the size of an orange) 2 weeks after I started bleeding at the end of November... I still have no idea how big it was before then and I'm kind of scared to imagine it. I'm happy to say, it's down to a tiny 2cm (about the size of a postage stamp! I'm released from bed rest and the peri's care, but told I still don't need to be doing any lifting and stuff like that.
Better still, it hasn't damaged the placenta or the baby!
The baby's measuring within a day of my due date, so pretty much, right on schedule! I'm still really in shock. I wasn't expecting to make it this far and I can't even wrap my head about the fact that this bleed didn't destroy the placenta.
I'm not religious, but by god, I can't deny a miracle when it looks me right in the face... or the inside of the stomach, rather. Before I get all over-emotional and weepy, lemme say, thanks to everyone who said a little prayer for me because it truly seems to have been answered.
That's so amazing! I had read your blog after you'd done the initial post describing the bleed and all, and I would not have expected to hear that it's almost gone and that you're off bed rest, either. That's something like a miracle in my opinion, too! I'm so glad you're off bed rest and can have a "normal" end of your pregnancy, and most of all, likely carry this little one to term and not have to spend weeks in the NICU. Hooray!!!!
