Three months to go!

(Posted 07/23/08)
Wow! Time is really flying by fast (especially now that I’m feeling so good)! I have always heard of the 2nd trimester being the best part and it sure is for me. I’m no longer sick and I’m not big enough to be really uncomfortable.

I again want to thank all of you that have read and/or commented on this blog. The subject of infertility is not often discussed openly. Many people feel there is something “wrong” with them or they feel ashamed. It is so nice to know that so many of you have been there or are going through it. I wish all of you the very best and thank you for all of your kind words and well-wishes.

Today, I went to see Dr. Scott Davis at Arkansas Cardiology. I was diagnosed with right bundle branch block (RBBB) a couple of years ago and my OBGYN Dr. Pamela Wills wanted to be sure that that would not cause any problems with anesthesia or any other medications. Fortunately, Dr. Davis says RBBB is very minor and there shouldn’t be any problems. I will be getting an ultrasound on my heart next week just to be sure everything is in working order.

Later this week, I’ll be going in for the gestational diabetes test. I apparently have to be careful to not eat any sugar that morning and then drink a little bottle of juice that I’ve been given. Then exactly one hour later, they will take my blood. This particular appointment will be recorded by the Channel 7 Creative Services Department for our “Healthy Baby” segments sponsored by Baptist Health. I’m now the spokesperson for the segments and my own pregnancy will be followed in hopes of encouraging others to be sure they’re getting their pre-natal care that they need. So keep your eyes open for the new segments!

That’s all for now! Thanks for checking in!
