Ok - for the past few months - actually month, I was preparing myself to NOT go to CHA. I'll be 33+ weeks pregnant, out in Vegas, etc. I figured that it would be best for me to stay at home. As the date is slowly approaching, I'm finding myself sad that I can't be there - that I can't see my friends, etc.
So I went to my OB today for my 30 week check up. Things are looking good with the pregnancy. The baby is not measuring as big as Maggie did (probably because I'm not gestational with this baby) and my BP is good, protein is good and I gained 1 pound. (Brings the total for this pregnancy to -7!!!)
Then the ultimate happened - she gave me PERMISSION TO FLY!!!! I was so excited! After threatening bed rest, telling me to take it easy, limiting stress, etc., I finally got the permission. My BP was ultra low (108/62) and she said that I was looking good, so she thought it might be good for me to get away for a few days. She told me to "have fun". (LOVE my doctor!)
I can't even believe I'm considering it. I would tear up at the thought of not going and now that I can - I'm excited but worried. What if something happened and I went into labor - how tired will I be, etc. But, what if I DON'T go? Then how sad will I be???? I won't get to see all of my friends, etc. That's the biggest part - being there and seeing everyone and working in the booth.
I'm eagerly awaiting for Scott to call so that I can ask him. He should have a say in this since it's his baby, too. I'm sure he'll be 100% supportive. Heck - I'd love to bring him with me but he can't take off of work. He's using his vacation for when we have the baby. But, I have a group of supportive DT members going with me. They're like family and will make sure I'm ok.
Ah the dilemma - should I or shouldn't I?
