High Risk

So, me and baby are very special! We've been put in the 6-8% of all pregnancies category of "high risk." I have a feeling that they are overreacting, but better safe than sorry. I have this spinal condition (my hindbrain hangs down into my spinal cord, which disrupts the spinal fluid and causes problems including a pocket of spinal fluid just chilling out on my spinal cord), so apparently that earns me a visit to a perinatalogist. Right now, I'm not sure who is delivering our baby. The nurse at OB said this perinatalogist would, but I'm not sure I believe that. The good side of all of this is that we move to Children's Hospital Clinics instead of the East Clinic at the hospital. We weren't terribly impressed with the hospital clinic. It was chaos and most of the staff wasn't friendly.

Good news: My sister found me a super cheap maternity swimsuit online at Wal-Mart. All this stress makes my back hurt. That's the story. We have an ultrasound on Thursday, so hopefully that'll put some worry to rest!

  1. The bright side is that the peri's have all the high tech machinery and cool toys!
