Nearly 28 weeks now. Had my checkup the other day and baby seems great (active, great heart rate) but the OB is sending me for an u/s next week to double check things as my fundal height is quite ahead. Need to know if it's only a big baby or if there is excess amniotic fluid and, if so, then why. Please keep fingers crossed we just have a big, healthy girl on our hands and nothing too serious.
Then yesterday I found out my dad was in a very severe car wreck which resulted in brain trauma and possible spinal cord injury (definitely a burst fracture). They helicoptered him for emergency surgery to save his life and he is stable at the moment but honestly there are so many factors up in the air about permanent brain damage or paralysis and we don't know much yet. I am just gutted. I know I need to take care of myself for the baby's sake and I am trying. Hubby is being good reminding me to eat and such it's just hard not to stress and even if he does make it they say it will be weeks of hospitilization followed by months of hard work in rehab for recovery. My dad was so excited to meet his grandchild come July and also get to see me and my pregnant belly next month at the shower. Me and hubby are waiting for more info from my mom about when it would be best to visit (a few hour car trip) as she wants me to stay home and be comfortable and at this time there's really nothing i could do but sit in the lobby. Lots of family is calling me asking me for updates. I just want it all to go away. Anyway, if you could spare a prayer or thought for him too that would be great.
