Perinatologist Appointment

My doctor called us back this morning. She had an emergency she was dealing with at the hospital last night, which is why she couldn’t call us back. She told Joe that the concern isn’t that the clot will rupture but that it will irritate the cervix and cause it to open. However, if the clot is in the sac like the sonographer said, I don’t know how it’s possible for it to irritate the cervix.

She got us in at a different perinatologist office today, which is great. We really didn’t want to wait two weeks to see the peri, get our questions answered and hopefully get off bed rest. However, I don’t intend to make the three hour roundtrip very often, so I’m hoping he will forward everything to the peri I originally was scheduled with near our house.

I feel kind of down about this. I had problems getting pregnant, and now I’m having problems with the pregnancy, and it makes me feel bad. Neither of my sisters-in-law had complications, and I just feel like the odd woman out. I know it’s not my fault, but I can’t help how I feel.

    I know how you feel- when you’re the one experiencing things that no one else has had to face. Keep your chin up! Sounds like these doctors are going to do what they can to keep little one safe.

    Easy word to say, “relax,” much harder to follow, but I hope you can relax and enjoy your experience in the very near future! Maybe some meditation or something?? Can’t be easy.

    I know Cady. I don’t blame you for feeling the way you do. But like everyone else has said, you need to just take care of yourself & Lucy. I’m sure bedrest sucks, but it’s what is best right now. I hope you get good news at the perinatologist.
