Is the End Near?September 01, 2011
September 1st. I can’t believe it is September 1st today. Even before we knew something was wrong with my pregnancy, I have always said that I wanted my baby to be born in September, and now there is no question that she will be. Plus, I like sapphires, and I already have a peridot ring from when “L” was born.
That was the paragraph I wrote this morning… before our doctor’s appointment. After so many weeks of “boring” appointments, we ended up leaving this morning’s appointment with extra doctor’s appointments. Now I have an appointment tomorrow, Tuesday, and still my normal one next Thursday.
There are also some Doppler flow items that are starting to look slightly abnormal, so the new protocol will be a biophysical profile every 4 days now, instead of every week. And… the holiday weekend screwed that up for us this week (which is why I have the appointment tomorrow). Thank God that by some strange act, my health insurance company suddenly decided to start covering my prenatal care at 100% again (as state law requires)!
While there is no immediate need for me to deliver, it will now be a weighing game between baby being better on the inside or better on the outside. I can’t help but feel that the end is near. At least my bag is packed this time, right?
If I have to smile about one thing today it’s that the ultrasound tech could actually see the baby’s hair on the ultrasound. She has hair! With the all big, bad things we’ve been told during ultrasounds, sometimes it’s just nice to know the normal, little things too!
