Pregnancy Update...

I am 38 weeks today, and yes, still pregnant.  At my last appointment, we found out baby is/was breech.  I've been trying some positions to get him to turn, and we think he may be head down now.  The other concern is my platelets have been dropping.  Apparently this happens in pregnancy sometimes, but it is a concern.  I am going in again tomorrow morning to have my blood checked again and check baby's position.  They also want me to see a hematologist (apt on Thurs morning).  This puts me at risk to not be able to have an epidural (which I've done before), but it also means that if I need a C-Section, I would need to be knocked out (no needles in my back for fear of bleeding and not being able to clot).  Please pray that baby boy will come at the perfect time, in the best way, and that we would both remain healthy.


***UPDATE***

I had my OB apt today.  The baby has turned and is now head down!  Yeah!!!!  My platelet levels went up as well.  They are higher than they've been for the past two weeks (103,000 for you medical types).  Thank you for your prayers.  Please continue to pray for baby boy's safe arrival.

So close now! I will pay for you both. I had opposite problems. My platelets skyrocketed and I did have a clot. Pregnancy does weird things! Take care, sweetie!

Great news Lynn!!!

I had to chuckle at your first sentence since I've never met anyone at 38 weeks and not pregnant! ;-D

Glad to hear both prayer requests have been answered!

That is really wonderful! Many were praying.

Mama Roar cracked me up. Just because she said that, I had to look back 38 weeks, since I most definitely am not pregnant! That was the week God suddenly used FB to bring us buyers for our Lititz house - a day before we were planning to list it with a realtor. That was a big Gid moment for us.
