Update on my platelets...Dr Blake called me Thursday morning before we left to go to Tulsa and told me not to waste the trip and she could just talk to me over the phone. What a Dr!!! She sadi that we won''t worry until they''re under 50. Then she would like Dr Sohaei to start steroid therapy and I may be at risk for a platelet transfusion during delivery. Depending on how everything goes. I have to get them checked once a week until Ethan is born. Then Ethan has to be monitored for 1 month after he is born to make sure I didn''t pass anything on to him. What a crazy little disease I have. It''s called Gestational Thrombocytopenia. So now we just watch and see what happens. Also if my platlets are below 100 during labor I can''t have an epidural. Darn!!!
Just an update. Dr Sohaei checked my platelet level again yesterday and it came back 87 (which it should be 150 or above). So I''m going to see Dr Blake. A perinatologist in Tulsa on Thursday. Hopefully she won''t worry because it''s not really really low. Dr S is sending me just to make sure she''s not missing anything.
Doctors appointment today: She said that everything looks great. She wants me to start walking at 35 weeks to help my leg muscles. He''s already head down. Woo Hoo!! He''s still measuring 2 weeks ahead of schedule.
Had our Dr''s appointment today. She said everything looked great. Said that I''m still measuring big so she definitly won''t let me go over 41 weeks. (Usually she won''t let you go over 42 weeks but since he''s going to be pretty big she knocked off a week). Hopefully she won''t let me go over 40. :)
