I have been a very bad blogger for the last few weeks. I haven't posted blogs and I haven't read blogs. I have no excuses, as I had plenty of time to do both because I've been on bed rest for the last 2 weeks.
At my appointment 2 weeks ago with the MFM specialist, it was decided that I would have an amnio to check Bean's lungs and if they were fully developed I would be having a c-section last Friday. When my results came back, the Dr. said there was a 5% chance Bean would need some form of assistance breathing (oxygen, most likely) and she wasn't willing to take that chance.
After twice weekly NST and ultrasounds, Bean will be coming into the world next Monday around 1 p.m. I have five days left, but I am excited to report that yesterday I hit 36 weeks!! I did something I didn't think was possible, I now know what it feels like to be 9 months pregnant!!
As for bed rest, I've been watching a lot of Law and Order: Criminal Intent. And I've stayed away from the computer. My only logical reasoning is that the computer reminds me of work (I'm a newspaper editor) so in relaxing I have stayed away from my beloved macbook.
Everything is going great, Bean seems to look like Jay from the 3d ultrasound the tech snuck in before my amnio!! I just hope she has his red hair, although Micah's gramma has said that Bean will be a brown haired, blue eyed little girl.
I promise not to disappear for so long again. I'll make an effort to blog daily in the last part of this bed rest.
