Thank you...

I just wanted to thank you all for your love, prayers and supportive comments on my last post. You sure do know how to make a girl feel not alone and loved!! :)

Still no news on when our specialist appointment is. I called the specialist's office directly this morning, but no one picked up so I left a message. I just wanted to make sure they have my charts and are working on getting me an appointment. Pushy? Yes. Do I give a crap? NOPE.

So hopefully they will return my call today and even better call back with an appointment date!

I'm realizing I can't do anything about this situation except pray. I can't make her legs grow longer...I can't change things...I just have to hope and pray that this is just another little hiccup and that she's just going to be a little peanut. But of course things play over and over in my mind like did I take/eat something that stunted the growth of her legs? Like my ventolin inhaler for example. It's a category c. And I really was not happy about having to use it, but my asthma has been worse lately (think I'm getting a cold) and I've had to use it a lot! Of course, I keep thinking...it's the inhalers fault!!! But I know that is probably not true. But I do keeping thinking of what I could have changed to maybe make her legs grows a bit more.

Funny thing is, is that Samantha was kicking me A LOT yesterday. Could have been little punches too. But I was thinking to myself  "For this nugget to have such little legs, those little legs sure do pack a punch!" :) Maybe it was her way of telling me that she is perfectly fine in there and that the doctor's have no idea what they are talking about. I wish that was the case :)

We appreciate all the prayers! So please keeping them coming :)

Samantha said...

Hang in there! I think it's okay to be pushy in the situation. You have to be the advocate for yourself and your baby!

Josey said...

LOL, I'm sure that's the case!! Lots of prayers that she'll keep on kicking you to remind you that she's going to be a happy, healthy little girl!

Don't beat yourself up over if it is something you ate or took, people get pregnant and stay pregnant under the most extreme circumstances and have healthy babies so it is nothing you did. I am hoping everything is ok with your baby and when it comes to her, you should be pushy!!! Thinking about you and praying!

Just wanted to let you know that I'm thinking of you and Samantha and sending prayers your way. Hopefully the specialist calls you back with an appointment time ASAP so you don't have to sit around worrying all day!

I'm gonna be keeping you in my prayers. I hope she keeps kickin' and the result is that she is happy and healthy. Us petite people make up in strength what we lack in height. Go Samantha! Adda girl, keep kicking we know you're gonna be healthy and beautiful! Prayers are gonna keep flowing.

I also have asthma. I had my appointment with Maternal Fetal Medicine before my first IVF to go over all my medical issues. The doctor told me that I need to continue to use my emergency inhaler because if Mom can't breathe baby can't breathe basically. So don't beat yourself up over it.

I doubt it would do any more harm to your unborn baby than the medicines we used to get pregnant. Most likely, I really do hope, that she is just going to be under tall like her momma. Good luck!

When something is going on you should never feel alone. Don't worry about "bothering" the specialist either. I would call 5 timnes a day if it were me! Sending you hugs!

Don't blame yourself! I am sure everything is okay. I am thinking of you and Samantha. The waiting must be sooo tough, but hang in there!!!

oh sweetie, how scary! But like the other girls said, it's definitely not your fault. You have gone above and beyond to bring a healthy baby into this world! I'll be praying that this is just a scare! :)
