Today was supposed to be a post about my 37th week of pregnancy, however baby Turner, henceforth known as Mildred Jane, decided to show up early. My water broke about 8:45 on Thursday night, and Mildred was born on Friday morning.  And because everyone always wants to know, the official statistics were as follows: Mildred…

We are at 36 weeks, and it feels like a miracle that I’ve survived being pregnant this long. With all of the issues we have had in the last trimester, it’s nice to be at what is considered “full term.”  That way Spot can come any time now, and it would be perfectly OK. According…

Yesterday marked 35 weeks of pregnancy.  It was a pretty calm week at the office, which was much appreciated since Spot found another way to cause problems. For some unknown reason, my blood pressure was high at last Friday’s NST (Non-Stress Test). Spot looked fine, of course, but the increase in blood pressure meant that…

Spot has been cooking for 34 weeks now. And with plans to take her early, we are on the final countdown, looking at weeks instead of months.  It’s making me feel a bit panic-y. Thankfully we had the baby shower last weekend.  That gives me a couple more weeks to figure out what we still…

We’re at 33 weeks! That means that we only have 3 more weeks to full-term!  It’s been a bit of a busy week for Spot.  We had Baptism class last Thursday night, a non-stress test at our regular OB on Friday, and Tuesday morning we had another anatomy scan.  And since we hadn’t had one…

I’m 31 weeks along now. Yea for being another week closer to meeting the still unnamed Spot! You wouldn’t think there would bet much in the way of health news this week, as I’ve actually managed to not have an appointment with the doctor since my last update. But, somehow there is. I am randomly…

I’m 30 weeks along now and have managed to keep myself from being hospitalized for a whole week since my release. Yea!  I am still having pain on my right side, and my liver enzyme levels are still off, but the doctors can’t seem to find a cause.  At this point, they believe it to…

Spot is now 29 weeks along, but this last week was a rough one.  I ended up having to go into hospital early last Thursday morning, and wasn’t released until yesterday evening.  I went in due to severe pain on the right side of my abdomen, which was all the more concerning for being 28…
