Here's our little sweet cheeks at 20 weeks 3 days.
Hand all curled under her little chin.
They measured EVERYTHING from head to toe on our angel-even her lips!
The verdict is-she is completely perfect and 100% on track for her age!
THEN THERE'S ME....UGH!
I have been waiting to update the blog until I knew the results of my 24 hour urine test which my Dr. assured me on Tuesday would be fine. Well, NOT SO MUCH... The amount of protein last month was 160.
When I heard my Dr's voice and not the nurses on my cell Thursday during a homeschool field trip, I knew something must not be right and immediately felt anxiety and tears set in...
She said my protein had quadrupeled to 800 and there is no explanation for it. She said she was not going to call it pre-eclampsia YET. I immediately pictured myself on bed rest in the hospital for the next months while my 6 little ones struggles without me at home-being cared for by strangers. The thought of it makes me tear up and my BP go sky high.
She got me in with a urologist yesterday afternoon who said this to me "ARE YOU SURE YOU ARE AT THE RIGHT PLACE?, YOU SHOULD REALLY BE SEEING A NEPHROLOGIST." He said "I just don't know what to do with you, I will call a nephrologist friend of mine and let you know next week." ALL THIS after I waited almost 2 hours to see him. AND OF COURSE, it was 5pm and my OB office is closed by now.
SO, I called the Dr. on call and told her the situation. She just told me to chill, drink lots of water and wait until Monday on which they will promplty make an appointment for me to see a nephrologist.
ON A WONDERFUL NOTE...
God let us know that he is still in control and protecting our little girl and me by allowing my sweet husband to feel SEVERAL LARGE KICKS last night! She is an active girl, just in the last few days! I LOVE feeling her move, it's just the neatest thing EVER! Trusting HIM all the way!
"Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!"
