I had my first of two appointments this morning for Isabelle. I was stopped immediately before getting my vitals taken because they could tell I had a "not so" nutritious breakfast. I knew I should not have had a taquito and coke for breakfast!! I hadn't had one in so long and had been so good but I was craving it this morning. Oh well... lesson learned. Plus the scale showed a few extra pounds. Again, not a smart day to eat a big breakfast.
Dr. E. decided not to check my cervix today. If I have began to dilate, she doesn't want to progress anything further. At this point, I am monitoring my contractions to make sure I don't feel like anything is too much out of the ordinary. Plus, I need to continue to slow down a bit and rest as much as possible. Easier said than done, but I will try. Dr. E. said that Isabelle has dropped and is sitting very low which could explain some of the pain that I have been experiencing.
Good news is that I am able to work for another week!! This is such a blessing. I really need to work as long as possible (especially since we already know I will need to be out for Isabelle's heart surgery) and I don't want to put the office in any more of a bind.
We are keeping our fingers crossed for another smooth appointment in a few hours. Next up is our high risk appointment. Hopefully Isabelle will cooperate so it will be nice and quick.
