    I hope all goes well! I found I was unable to work pretty much my entire pregnancies due to my joints, and other issues. At least that way I only had minimal comments about how poorly I was coping...other issues! I struggled to even walk at the end, don't know how people do it lol!! Was hard watching others so casually continuing on with life, but so be it. I have two of the most gorgeous children to prove every second of it was worth it!! Mine were prems after multiple miscarriages, so I understand it can be an incredibly stressful time.

    Well I am 24 weeks and still preggers. The last sonogram showed a perfectly healthy baby. So far my blood thinners are working and seem to be doing their job. I haven't really needed strong painkillers the pregnancy seems to have put my disease into remission status at the moment. Most of the problems I am experiencing are spine related to my expanding belly. I am still on minimal medications and doing really well. *knock Knock Knock* will probably be getting induced around 37 weeks due to risks. Its kind of difficult as time passes it is scary that my OBGYN is a 45 minute drive but I am in full blown high risk maternal-fetal medicine care and in one of the best High Risk Maternal Fetal Medicine care facilities in this area of Texas so I am definitely counting my blessings. All of my specialists operate out of that particular hospital system (my cardiologist/vascular medicine specialist and rheumatologist included) I have the medical support I need so I can't complain.

    Thats good news.
    I am glad that you are in good hands. Keep going strong the last few weeks, it'll be here, before you know it.
    Good luck.

    I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).

    I was just thinking about our girl in Dallas recently.
    I am so glad to read an update! 24 weeks is a milestone! I'm so glad that things are going so well for you.
    Keep on updating us - I for one will be anxious to see pictures of your precious little one.
    I'm working on a baby blanket right now - Hillary is expecting a baby (and it could be twins) in the fall.
    Hugs,
