This morning my hemoglobin and hematocrit dropped meaning that I've lost a little more blood than what the Dr had originally thought. I started bleeding bright red blood again but it's still only a small amount for the time being. so the plan is to draw my blood again in the morning and if it remains low then give me a blood transfusion. I've never had one before and the thought really scared me. They started me on compression hoses to prevent blood clots today. Kennedi has been very active and doing good. The Dr said that I have to go atleast 7 days without any blood before he will let me leave the hospital. I had lots of visitors today and I was talking to a friend of mine that is an OB/GYN and things started to set in that when the time comes for her to be born it's going to be an emergency c-section more than likely and it scared me. I had a meltdown and started crying like crazy this afternoon. I've never been so scared. All I want is for Michael, Kennedi, and I to be a family. It's still just a sit and wait game.Sorry for being so down. I'm hoping that a good nights sleep and my friend Ashley coming to supervise my blood transfusion, along with having the whole weekend with Michael not leaving my side will help me find a new perspective.

I'll be sure to say extra prayers for you this weekend. I hope that you get some peace about the situation, for I know it must be stressful!

I will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers Amanda. I can't imagine how scary it would be going through all you have. But after all of this you will get to meet Kennedi and be a family.

Thank you. The Dr told me yesterday that I would have to go an entire 7 days without bleeding before he would let me go home. I'm still bleeding today. So for now we get to stay put. My Hemoglobin came up to 8.8 this morning it was 7.9, the on-call Dr will be doing her rounds this morning and she's going to make the decision whether or not to give the blood transfusion. I actually got 9 hours of sleep last night. I def needed it. I woke up with a better perspective this morning. I think sleep exhaustion was setting in.

I'm glad you got a good night's sleep. Please KUP on what the morning Dr. prescribes. I can't imagine that a transfusion is fun, but you'll probably feel better after.

Sending lots of hugs your way. I know right now it's really scary, I was at that place with Connor. All you want is for your LO to be safe and healthy. Just know in the end you will be holding your beautiful baby girl and everything will be worth it.

I'm sorry you're having a rough time. At least Kennedi is doing well. If you have any questions about the csection, please ask...or visit the csection board. I was very nervous about having one at first, but did a ton of research and was ultra relaxed during it. I knew everything that was going to happen and not having any surprises was great. That comes in handy, especially when I had a kid who took a breath and then refused to take another for what seems like an eternity. If you know what will happen, you have a better chance of enjoying the birth and staying calm through the environment that may seem different.

Thank you for that info. I've been told that when the time comes it's going to be a stat c-sections and basically they are going to give me gas and take her out. I won't be awake. Being a NICU nurse I've seen what the c-section looks like but the fear comes from it all happening so fast. I'm just scared of how fast the whole process will go.
