Official c-section date is set!!!!

Barring anything unexpected, Gabriel Michael will be delivered via c-section on December 2nd. Since I am on anticoagulants, I will be admitted to the hospital on December 1st so they can give me the meds to reverse the anticoagulant effects. After that has taken effect, they will do something called a bleed time test to see if my clotting time is back to normal. If it is, then I will have the c-section with spinal anesthesia. If for any reason the clotting time is not back to normal, I will probably have to be put under general anesthesia (WHICH I REALLY DO NOT WANT).

My blood pressure was still excellent at today’s appointment. Also, I have finally gained back some of the weight I lost. In two weeks, I gained about 5 pounds. Since I am not retaining water or do not have any swelling, the nurse thinks they just misweighed me by a couple of pounds at my last appointment. I am still 7+ pounds below my starting weight so all is good.

My next appointment is in 2 more weeks and we will start the non-stress tests then (for no reason other than I am high risk).
