I met with the doctor Wednesday. I wanted to know what “the plan” was for the low platelets. First thing, I just then was learning he had my LMP date wrong. Like a whole week wrong. So that means he has my due date as almost a whole week off. Whatever. My date is 2/10/2012. And, that is what I’m going by.
So, the plan? Well, there really isn’t one. My platelets came back at 112,000 this week (again, it can change daily). But, when they are above 100,000, we don’t need to do anything. So, we’ll redraw and count next week and see where they are. I’m continuing to pray that they stay up and we don’t have to have any more discussions about steroids and inductions. Let’s let this little girl come when she’s ready (okay, let’s let her come within the next two weeks).
Because my mom and sister have been bugging me, here’s a belly picture from this week…38 weeks.
And, I actually went and got the hard drive out and looked up 38 weeks with girls #1 and #2 (#1 on the left and #2 on the right).
It would probably be a little easier to compare if they were all the same direction and shot, but well, I can’t tell. Same size? Different? My mom thinks I look smaller. I’m guessing when she sees this, she won’t think so. I will say this. I’m the same weight I was with both girls at 38 weeks. I find this a little ironic because with #1, at this point I was still teaching like 3 aerobics classes a week (I was doing 7 in the beginning), and this time? Well, I’m really not doing a lot of anything.
