Well well well...yet another Dr appt has gone by and Im officially a "high risk" patient...I know exciting isnt it? (sigh) ...A couple of my friends have used Dr Dashow and absolutely love him...which makes me feel very fortunate Im blessed with the best high risk Dr. around...but still...under these circumstances?...I think not....I was given a pamphlet today for "maternal/fetal medicine" and what it entails ect. the first thing I noticed about it was that it was blank on the front and back...you know..kinda private/confidential...which struck me as odd...why hide it? I chuckled...its not something Im ashamed of...granted it sucks big time..but what am I going to do? So I gave more blood today and I wont know the results until monday...(ish) we had to schedule a consultation with our high risk dr and thankfully they were just able to extend our appt originally set for Christmas eve...so after the ultrasound we'll just go meet with him at the same office...which makes it really nice because stevens already got the day off so he wont need to take any extra time...ptl! So as long as my count stays low we're ok...1-9....if they get into the double digits thats when we worry....hopefully that wont be the case but its definatley a possibility..(I hope this is making sense) when she was checking me out today she also noted I had a tilted cervix (sorry for any men reading this...tmi ...i know...but it sure explained a lot!) which she thinks resulted in my csection with jake...she didnt want to jump to conclusions and is still willing to let me try a natural labor..another ptl! also....I have a slanted uterus...i know i know..what a day for great news huh? lol she said that wasnt a big deal though...phew... oh yes and dr dashow is a PRO advocate for VBACS! ...its great to hear of a high risk dr willing to do that! So this is definatley out of our hands and all we can do now is pray pray pray that these levels will not go up! Oh yes and to add salt into the wound...the chances of us having any more kids are unlikely unless we're willing to go through this again...with possibly a worse turnout... but as it says in Hebrews 13:5 we need to be content with such things as we have for he has said I will never leave you or forsake you....so I cant dwell on the negative things just be thankful for what I've been blessed with already!!

...For now Im going to go help celebrate my best friends sisters 18th birthday up in Squaquamish...I need to escape for the night! Thank you everyone for your prayers and have a great weekend!Love, me!
