Oh wow. Here’s an update on what we have going on for the rest of this pregnancy:
Twice weekly growth scans+NST (non-stress tests). Two trips to Jacksonville for this, Mondays and Thursdays
Twice weekly physical Therapy appointments for the next 5 weeks. Two additional trips each week- Tuesdays and Fridays.
Once a week with the O.B. Beginning March 20- Additional trip to Jacksonville, because these are on Wednesdays.
Blood sugar monitoring, 4 times a day. Blood sugars to be faxed to high risk OB every Friday.
Oral blood sugar medcation, once daily unless it fails to control sugar levels. Then we move to shots.
Mon-U/S and NST
Can anyone tell me what to do with my 2 year old during the day, every day, until I have a baby? And also? How do people without cars and who have jobs manage this kind of medical-heavy pregnancy? Somone needs to develop a home Electronic Fetal Monitoring kit that download to a computer or something that Drs can access and read. It’s just silly and incredibly difficult to drive 75 or 80 miles in a day, simply to hook up to a monitor for a half an hour.
And finally- if you are a client reading this, I’m sorry. This is evidently my job for the next 2 months, and finding time to work becomes more difficult by the minute.
