That darn baby

Postby MrBlack » Thu Feb 07, 2013 11:23 am

This place seems as good as any to talk about this.

My wife is 34 weeks into her second pregnancy. The first one was pretty hard; she developed gestational diabetes late in the second trimester and had to go on a diabetic diet, which she really didn't like. She was better prepared for the hurdles of pregnancy this time around, but not only did her blood sugar get messed up even earlier in this pregnancy, but she also may be developing pre-eclampsia. At this point, she has been going to the doctor twice a week, and she was admitted to the hospital on Monday for observation.

Thankfully, we can see the end of the tunnel. If her blood pressure spikes, we're far enough along that having the baby now wouldn't be a terrible burden (he's healthy, kicking, and weighs nearly as much as his older brother did at 37 weeks). If she can make it three more weeks, she will be full term. I doubt the doctor will advise that we wait any longer for her to have the baby.

Like I said, we were both better prepared for the pregnancy this time around, but juggling work, my other son, and my wife's doctor visits has started to wear on me a bit. I don't remember the last time I didn't feel weary all the way down to my bones.

I'm really looking forward to seeing my baby though.

Sympathies, dude.

We just had our second kid back in September (our first was 2.5 at the time) and it was absolutely exhausting even without the medical complications your wife is having.

Hang in there, man. It'll all be worth it.

yeah, hang in there once your son enters the world you will not remember any of the weeks that lead up to it.

Though if you want go ahead and threadkick some people and ban someone of your choice.

Feel free to do some of that in my name. The doctor just called with some test results and we're headed back to the hospital.

My son and I are home. Wife is still at the hospital for 24 hour observation. I'm hoping they send her home tomorrow or Saturday and prescribe bed rest. The other option is to have the baby now, which I would rather not do.

My mother-in-law is flying in on Saturday, which will be a big help. At least I'll be able to wrap things up at work before I take paternity.
