Scared Now….

So, I don’t know where exactly to start. I am feeling scared…

Well, I wasn’t trying to get pregnant and honestly we did not want to have another baby. Rafael was actually going to meet with a doctor regarding a vasectomy this Tuesday. Then this happens and I find out that I am pregnant…

The OB/GYN came in to see me today and explained some stuff a little more. She told me that only 50% of pregnancies make it without miscarriage. I could feel my heart in my throat…I wanted to cry. She said that having a bout of pancreatitis in the beginning of this pregnancy adds a lot of complications and that if I continue to have problems/flare-ups that I may have to consider terminating the pregnancy to get treatment. WHAT????? I just wouldn’t do that!!!! I am sick in my stomach now from a new thought. Also, that I am more prone to having a miscarriage…OMG!!! I have never been through anything like that and I can’t imagine doing so. I know that I need to stay strong and try not to stress, but it is hard.

They are going to continue testing the pregnancy levels in my blood and also my progesterone levels. She said if my progesterone levels are high and stay that way then it is probably going to be a viable pregnancy. They will also continue with ultrasounds and would like me to follow with them when I am discharged.

She doesn’t know how long they will keep me here….UGH!!! She said that the medical doc’s like to keep pancreas patients here a while….Dang this teaching hospital!!! LOL

Please continue to pray for me and now our baby needs all your prayers too…

    Oh my goodness, I have just been reading all that you have been going through the past couple of days. I hope that everything turns out ok for you and the baby. My thoughts are with you and your family.

    Jen took the words right out of my mouth.I’m thinking someone else has plans for you my dear. Everything will turn out the way it’s meant to turn out. I really believe that…though it might not help in relieving any stress for you…it does make ME feel a little better.This is about me, isn’t it??In all seriousness, just relax…read a good book, everything is going to work out.
