Worst Blogger of the Year Award goes to me.

I am soo sooo sorry for no blogging..smack me if you must!

I'll post a quick update with the pregnancy, and other than that I really have nothing to talk about...I am boring mostly, what can I say?

So, I am officially into my 3rd trimester, which absolutely thrills me. being a nurse in L&D, I see a lot of preemie deliveries, and so that's always at the back of my mind. I just really want to get through the next 6 weeks and then if this little one decides to come, that's ok. I passed my sugar was stellar actually! But I am so failing in the Blood Pressure department.

On Monday I started feeling really awful at work, so I asked a co-worker to check my was high, really not good. I rested for 15 min, and she checked again, still high. Luckily, I work where I am I just walked down the hall to our triage, to have Sprout monitored and to get blood work drawn. All was fine, and with about an hours rest my BP came back to normal. This is the complicated blood pressure is not consistently goes high, then I take a breather and it comes back to normal, very difficult to treat BP that is labile like this. I have been taken off Night shifts, so I am down to only day shifts now, and if the BP continues to be a problem, then I might be off for good. I just really want to get another 4 weeks of working (at least), not even for the income as much as if I am at home, doing nothing, I will LOSE MY MIND. Working is my sanity.

We still don't know if the placenta has moved either. I have an ultrasound to check this at 32 weeks, on April 7th. I have had no bleeding, so this is good news! I am still suspicious though that its still low down, we had a 3D ultrasound for fun, and the baby was very low in my pelvis and cuddling up against the it looked to me to be pretty low, though the u/s was just for fun and not diagnostic at all.

I think that's all I need write, I think I have trouble writing about all of this because I know the struggle of infertility, and don't want others to come and be so heartbroken reading about it. I am still an infertile under this glowing pregnant shell though. Its been very hard for me to transition from being the infertile, who has lost babies, to the pregnant, and generally things are going great person. The pregnancy has been really really easy. I was nauseous the first 20 weeks, and have the previa, and have the BP issues...but really it has been so much easier than I expected.


  1. So glad you are here and doing so well! Great news!!!

  2. Hey! Congrats on entering the exciting 3rd trimester realm! "Worst blogger of the year" - you should create a graphic for that and patent it as an official award to pass onto others (wait, that might not go over so well...)

    Congrats again and thinking happy thoughts for you.
