What's one more drug...

Had to make a visit to my primary doctor today. My OB wanted me to see him in a few days to make sure I was getting better. She was worried about pneumonia. But after yesterday and last night I knew I couldn't wait to be seen again. Basically, my albuterol neb isn't helping me much at all. It gives me relief for about 20 minutes and then I'm back to feeling like my lungs are on fire. And I can only do the neb treatment every four hours. My doctor decided to put me on Prednisone (which is a steroid) for a few days. He called and talked to my OB first to get the okay. Am I thrilled that I have to take another drug and expose my baby to it? Hell no. Do I need to feel better? Yes.

I can deal with feeling sick, but not being able to breathe is just so horrible. Tomorrow is our appointment with the specialist to find out about Samantha's legs. I was going to bring a list with me of all the meds I have taken so far and have her tell me the truth on how it might be affecting my baby. But my husband made a good point by saying do we really want to know? And he's right. There is nothing we can do about it. I'm praying so hard that she is okay and these drugs are not negatively affecting her in any way. That's all I ask is for her to be safe and healthy. I keep rubbing my belly and apologizing to her for me being sick and taking all these drugs.

If you wouldn't mind saying a quick prayer tonight for us and our baby, we would be so grateful! I will let you all know how the appointment goes tomorrow...

You are most definitely in my thoughts!

The most important thing for your baby is a healthy mommy, so please give yourself a break about needing to be on meds to get yourself well. I hope you feel better very soon.
