Cristen's Pregnancy Journal

Weekly Journal--11/18/00

MY NAME IS CRISTEN AND I AM CURRENTLY 7 WEEKS PREGNANT.  I SUFFERED FROM HELLP MY FIRST PREGNANCY AT 26 WEEKS.  WE PLANNED THIS PREGNANCY AND ARE VERY EXCITED AND SCARED ABOUT IT.  I WISH IT DIDN'T HAVE TO BE THAT WAY, THOUGH I FEEL VERY POSITIVE ABOUT THE OUTCOME THIS TIME.  I WILL BE HEAVILY MONITORED.  I THOUGHT MAYBE BY DOING A JOURNAL IT WOULD HELP WITH SOME OF MY WORRIES JUST BY BEING ABLE TO WRITE THEM DOWN AND LET PEOPLE KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON, AND KEEP TRACK OF THEM MYSELF. 

I AM SCHEDULED THE 27TH OF NOV. FOR AN 8 WEEK ULTRASOUND, THAT WILL MAKE IT REAL.  I THEN HAVE MY FIRST DR.'S APPT THE 30TH.  ONE OF MY CONCERNS IS I'M FROM A FAIRLY SMALL TOWN AND THE NEAREST LEVEL 3 NICU UNIT IS 5 HRS AWAY.  MY DR. HERE IS CONFERRING WITH A DR. THERE AND A PERINEONATOLOGIST WILL BE GOING TO A TOWN 60 MILES AWAY TWICE A MONTH,
SO THAT AT LEAST HELPS.  I PRAY THAT THIS WILL BE A HEALTHY PREGNANCY. 

I SHOULD SAY MY DAUGHTER FROM THE FIRST ONE IS DOING GREAT. SHE'S 16 MONTHS OLD.  SHE JUST STARTED WALKING AND IS INTO EVERYTHING!!!  SHE'S A WHOOPING 14.6LBS NOW (WHICH ISN'T TOO BAD WHEN YOU START OUT AT 1.1LB). SHE'S REALLY A JOY.  HER NAME IS REILLY ELIZABETH.  YOU CAN READ HER STORY, UNDER THE NICKOLAUS FAMILY.  THIS IS VERY THERAPEUTIC ALREADY. I'LL UPDATE AFTER MY DR. APPTS.
