Game changer

At my 36 week appointment this week we discovered that the steroids worked and my platelets went up to 109. So thankful!

But we also discovered that my grade 3 placenta is aging quickly and part of the placenta is already dead. At this point baby boy is still getting his nutrients but they are keeping a close eye on it. I am doing kick counts and listening to his heart rate via doppler. It's unsettling because up until this point it's just been me that's had the "issues" but now there is concern for our little guy's safety. Be praying for a healthy baby and mama. I get another sono on Wednesday morning to check on him and to see if the placenta has deteriorated further. I will keep you posted!

  1. Praying for all issues to be taken care of by our loving Father God and you and your precious baby boy will be well. Be strong!

  2. I'm so glad you are having so many u/s! I had a deteriorating placenta (and placenta acreta with calcifications) and we didn't know this until AFTER delivery. Scary stuff!
