2nd worse OB appt ever
Tue, 03-20-2012 - 4:11pm

well that didn't go well. Had my 27 wk dr appt today...27 wks and 3 days. Had my gestational diabetes test first. Then my ultrasound. I knew something was up- the tech was "off". So he is fine. For now. He has the cord around his neck- not a real big deal at this point. But my placenta is showing signs of age- not so good at 27 wks. Then have my dr appt. She was the one who told me about the cord and placenta. BP is high again 136/100. She asked when my appt with the high risk dr is and seemed happy it is next Thursday. So we went over milestones....24 wks is viability. 28 wks is 90% chance of survival (saturday). How everyday after that is even better and she doesn't expect me to get to my due date or even induction date by the sound of it. We start every 2 wk appts from here on out with her to include NSTs.

Can't I just do this easy???I have felt so good and thought my BP and normal aches and pains were all I had to deal with.

Sorry to hear you got more to worry about. You seem to be being well monitored so I hope things go as smoothly as possible over the next couple months.

Well, darn it. Good news, it's Saturday, so that's a few days under your belt. I'm sorry there's more to worry about but I'm glad they're watching you and that little one. Thinking of you two.
