Well, the pregnancy saga continues. Leandra had some more bleeding on Sunday night after kind of a busy weekend. She called the doctor Monday morning and they told her to be there in an hour. The doctor put her on bed rest for a week. We go to Dallas on Friday for something callled a “Level 2 Ultrasound”, and then have a followup appointment on Monday with the ob/gyn to see how things look.
The doctor said that the abruption, which is what’s causing the bleeding, is not apparently any worse, but he wants to play it very safe. He also said that the reason the abruption hasn’t healed may be because our baby is very active and in jumping around inside the womb a lot, and there’s nothing we can do about that. I think this one is going to be a troublemaker. It must be a girl. :-)
There doesn’t seem to be any negative impact to the baby from the abruption. “Spot”, as I’ve _affectionately_ nicknamed this child, is quite large and quite active. The doctor says he doubts that there will be any complications, but that he’s never messed up a baby yet and does not intend to start with ours.
