My platelets were 90 on 6/30. With Eli they were 86 at this point. I haven''t started the Prednisone but will next Friday. So I''m wondering if they''ll get above 100. If so that means epidural c-section. Which I''m all for!
Just a platelet update. I like to jot it down here just because it helps me keep track. I did the same with Ethan and Eli and it''s nice to be able to look back and see what they were when I was pregnant with them. So I had them checked yesterday and they were 94. Still not bad but not great. So in a month and a half they went from 91-99-94. I think she''s going to have me get them checked every 2 weeks from here on out. Next appointment is the 16th and I''ve only gained 16 lbs! That''s great compared to the total of 33 with both boys.
Ethan''s last day of school is the 27th. I think he''s had a great first year of preschool. I wish he could go to St. Andrew''s next year but it''s just too much driving. We''re in Indy enough as it is. Plus in bad weather with 2 other''s, it''ll be kind of hard to get in and out. If he goes over here, JR can take him if I need him to or he can stay home with the little ones.
Eli is still working on potty training. We really haven''t seen any progress but I''m not pushing it. Hopefully with summer and swimming in the backyard, we can just let him run around and he''ll figure it all out. He''s a smart one! :)
We''ve agreed on a name for baby girl...Addison. But she doesn''t have a middle name yet. This is the name we had picked if Eli was going to be a girl. We couldn''t agree on anything else so Addison it is! My platelets went back up to 99 as of May 13th. Which is great. I start going to the Dr every two weeks now. I wonder if being pregnant with a girl makes any difference, I doubt it but we can think it does. :)
We found out on April 2nd that we''re having a little GIRL!! We''re so excited!! Planning is comeing along nicely too. We''ve got the bedding, crib and car seat picked out. She''s already got a little closet of clothes too. Thanks to daddy. His little princess has to be nicely dressed. :)
As of yesterday my platelets are 91. Which I think, is still higher than they were with Eli. I go to see Dr. Blake, my perinatologist in Tulsa on Friday. She''s probably just going to tell me that I have to go on Prednisone again at 34 weeks, just like with Eli. Nothing new. :) Glad I''ve been through all of this before.
Ethan is playing soccer again this spring. His first game was FREEZING and he did NOT want to play. He played about 5 minutes his second game but his third game was GREAT!!!! He did so well and we are just so proud of him! He has another game this evening and I''m going to get some more video to post on here.
Eli is just as silly and such a daredevil as ever. He''s talking up a storm as usual and is really starting to be an independent little boy. We''re working on potty training but not pushing it. He actually told me today that he had to go, even though it was already after the fact. I''d say he goes about 3 times a day on the potty chair with me randomly putting him on it. Hopefully it clicks by the time he''s 3 like it did for Ethan. Won''t that be nice. :)
