Please keep us posted. I know how you will worry, and keep worrying, until you hold your babe in your arms, and forever after that. "Cause that's what moms do. But try to find comfort, each day, in the fact that you are doing the best things and making the best decisions you can, like taking your meds, for both your babe and his mom. Remember that you can't take care of him, (or her tee hee) unless you take good care of yourself first. Yesterday is a done deal, only God needs to worry about tomorrow. Today, please take moments of joy, to balance out moments of worry because you have to take one day at a time. Eat an ice cream for the two of you. Worry at bedtime for alittle while, then rest. Looking back, I am grateful for every moment, of every day, that I carried the babies I lost. I was grateful for the ultrasounds that I had. If you get too scared, for any reason, don't hesitate to call your OB. It only takes a few minutes to send you for an U/S. It gives the nurses job security, and the opportunity to smile and help you not worry so much or accept what you need to. Nobody but pregnant women have any idea, any clue at all about how long 9 months truly feels.
ps. the one sure thing you can do to help, right now, is eat well with lots of fruits and veggies and dairy.
pps. And drink lots of good, plain ole water
ppps. And pee alot
God knows, even if I don't....
