Updates and News (In Which I Whine)

December 30, 2011

Hey, Faithful Readers

Contrary to popular belief, Jon Bon Jovi and I aren’t dead.  I have just been stricken with a really bad case of pregnancy-related Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and since I have edema now, it’s gotten a lot worse.  This is what I look like when I attempt to use my hands:

Except, you know, not hot.  More hot mess.

Here is a whiny update on me life:

  • Currently 37w6d pregnant
  • Baby dropped at 32w
  • Last fibroid ultrasound at 34w came back clear.  They can’t find Kermit (the fibroid under my placenta), so they think it won’t be an issue during labour.
  • Iron levels have risen, but combined with fibroids, I might be at risk for post-partum bleeding.
  • Pre-labour has started.  I’m pretty much spotting every day now.  Only time I have ever been happy to see spotting.
  • Am currently having a lot of pelvic and back discomfort as my pelvis opens up.  To the lady who found my blog by searching for “I am pregnant with twins and cannot walk“, I feel your pain.  There is no position – sitting, standing, lying down – that isn’t guaranteed agony.  I am ready for this baby to be born.  Whenever you’re ready, kid.
  • Sister had her baby boy, born Christmas Day.  He has spent the past week or so in the hospital while they monitor him.  He is full term, but had a few minor health issues they wanted to watch.  Today, Milk and I get to meet him for the first time and we will be driving them home.
  • Despite the whiny nature of this post, I am actually very happy and excited to meet the Fifth Equestrian of the Apocalypse.

I am hoping that the swelling in my wrists and hands goes down fairly quickly after the birth, so I can start blogging and commenting again.  I do read your blogs, though, so I am keeping up with the news.

Now I have to go put my wrist braces on, and fade back into the ether like a ninja.

A waddly penguin ninja.

    I’m almost 4 weeks post partum and I’m still struggling with carpal tunnel….the swelling is all gone but the tingly feeling comes and goes, especially with typing and what not…I’ve just decided to ignore it and get stuff done…it sucks, but there’s not much I can do if I just wait for it to go away….

    Hoping for a safe and speedy delivery for you and your little one…can’t wait to hear all about it!!

    Have a Happy New Year!
