Had a visit with the gestational hematologist today, the 30 minute visit turned into an hour and a half! Everything went well. I need a whole bunch of additional tests at the university of minnesota.

I have a blood disorder that may or may not force me into a c-section, and it will need to be watched for my pregnancy. As of right now, everything looks good, and we are on track for normal delivery. However we have to watch the labor closely as no forceps or vacuum can be used should the baby get stuck.

My doctor may decide to just do a c-section to be safe, but that is something we need to discuss together. The risk of the baby having it is 50/50, so we have to decide what will work best for me and the baby. My sister has this disorder as well, but hers in a level worse than mine, so she needed her blood thickened and a planned c-section.

Im really hoping to avoid a c-section of at all possible. But we will see what develops.
