Yesterdays OB appointment went really well.
OB doesnt have any huge concerns and has no problem with me finishing up the pregnancy with my midwives!
She is ordering one more ultrasound, to triple check my placenta placement.
She also agrees that Meve is on the smaller side (long and skinny) and that the smaller head is a good thing when delivering naturally LOL
I also had a good Rheumy appointment today.
They had to squeeze me in as I disappeared from the computer.
But after an hour wait I got to in.
My recent blood work is good and he has no concerns for the rest of the pregnancy.
I do have some residual weakness, especially in my left hip flexor and quite a bit in my neck flexors (gee I wonder why I have so many issues with my neck LOL ).
He mentioned that once Im chasing a baby around I may not notice the residual pain as much, cause Ill be too busy.
I was going to mention my plans to do triathlons, but I think I will wait to surprise him with that after my first race.
I was a little worried when he asked "where" I was planning on delivering.
I sheepishly mentioned "at home".
I was almost expecting him to try and sway my choice (apparently Im a little gun shy now about my plans).
His only concern was if I had a tub/pool to use!
Gotta say Im pretty impressed. I was a very sick gal at one point.
I was told to basically give up any dreams of a career, family or hobbies. I was warned most likely I wouldnt be able to get pregnant or stay pregnant.
I never expected to be able to carry a pregnancy (close to term as of now!) or be able to think about goals (triathlons and riding my horses). Heck I gave up thinking someone would want to spend the rest of their life with me and my autoimmune issues.
For the longest time, I stopped dreaming and having goals... I didnt see the point.
Im so thankful that while I have some permanent damage, Im still able to function and I should be able to take steps towards goals and dreams and have a family!
