I can't think straight at the minute and I'm emotional so going to make this short.
T1 has low amniotic fluid and at high risk of m/c - the said a proper name but I wasn't really listening. T1 has a strong heartbeat but took a while to find. I'm on IV and oral hydration, so they can check T1's kidneys or something in the morning. That's all I know and all I can explain without crying.
Oligohydramnios. Jennifer had very low/borderline low amniotic fluid but quite late on, from about 29 weeks until they arrived I was on weekly 'shall we/shan't we deliver' scans. Amniotic fluid can increase apparently if you get plenty to drink and can rest.
Morning mama. Hope your stay isn't too frustrating. And you are getting some sleep instead of being poked every half an hour!
Have packed eldest off to neighbours for the day (they asked if she could go and play). Off into town soon to buy new glasses for me, see if alterations can be made to a new suit for Dh and a stroll around generally.
Jennifer and Joshua are coming along nicely. Joshua has started getting brave and when you stand him and let go, he's started taking those very wobbly, almost throwing himself, couple of steps towards us whilst giggling. Of course Jennifer cannot be outdone and today, after weeks and weeks of trying, she has finally managed to PULL HERSELF TO STANDING. Sorry for the shouting but we're thrilled! I popped her in the cot for a nap, went to fetch Joshua and by the time I'd got back upstairs, she was standing there grinning at me with her bum sticking right out. Of course it didn't last long before she slipped and bumped her head, but she has done it twice more since so WOO HOO! Of course, this now means she could potentially reach the higher bookshelves to destroy books.
That's wonderful news sok, I bet you're so proud of both of them.
They surprisingly left me alone, only waking me to change drip bag.
Had a scan at 10am, T1 is looking healthy and haven't found any defects so that's good news. AF had increased enough to get a good scan. T2 is also healthy with a good normal level.
Plan is to keep in until Tuesday - taking me off IV tonight, on an oral routine of 2 litres every 3 hours with daily scans to check for changes. Then if T1 has increased, I can go home on bed rest with oral hydration and weekly scans. Once I hit 12 weeks they'll decide what to do next.
Got a visit from the kids this morning which made me happy, also did a lot of pumping to take home.
Found you all Mama you must must rest, every opportunity you can, must be very worrying for you. xx Well dk is home, very very grumpy, two ghastly drains hanging off of him, nurse been out to check. He has to go back to the hospital next Thurs to see the consultant and have them removed. He was soooooo horrible y/day I told him if he continued to be unkind to me I would not look after him, I would take myself off for the w/end. Wish I could, all three kids are away until Mon. I am bored and fed up!
Thats very good news Mama......... a relief. Well done to Jennifer a milestone to be proud of! Can`t tell you how my day has been................my dear friend with dementia has had a fall and ended up in hospital, I spent 3 hours making calls................am very tired and wound up..........................and I am missing the kids..............surprised myself but I am. Just got a txt from dd on her way home from a concert in Portmouth, she is sooooooo excited coz the lead singer looked a her! Bless!! Sleep well................xx
Sorry to hear about your friend Triips - Dementia is a horrible, horrible thing.
Things at my parents have gone downhill. Mum is not coping at all well - Im not suprised to be honest. My brother rang Social services for them and asked what days they go and see them. Social Services have no record of my parents - they are supposed to organise daily carers Last time Dad was in hospital they sat with me and took down all their details for the SECOND time. They are coming to my parents house on Tuesday afternoon to assess them and IF they think they need it they will get daily help.
They dont realise that my sarcastic, at times nasty brother and myself will be sat waiting for them.
That's disgusting, shabs. How can they have no record? It's appalling. I hope you chew their asses out. Your parents deserve to be treated better and their concerns heard and noted. Fingers crossed it goes well.
Sorry about your friend, trips. Sending get well wishes her way.
I'm feeling more relaxed today and going with the flow. Kids are visiting soon and I hope dts are hungry. I miss bf! I can wait to see DH either and arrange things for when I come home. When you share a bed for years, it's unsettling and "wrong" to sleep alone.
