My High Risk Pregnancy… So Far!

February 19, 2018 in Giveaways, Pregnancy - No Comments

I debated talking about this subject because I didn’t want to blast my health issues out there for everyone to know but I decided to share because maybe someone else out there is going through the same thing. The reason that my pregnancy is high risk is because I have high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes.

What Previous Doctors Told Us

We were so excited to find out I was pregnant but the endocrinologist doctor that I saw for my fertility issues told me that because of my type 2 diabetes that any potential babies we have could have so many health issues. He told us we could have a mermaid baby, a baby with severe heart defects, amongst other things. Needless to say, we were nervous finding out we were pregnant because of that. At each ultrasound, I was so excited to see that baby was growing but also scared to see if he’d have any of these issues the doctor mentioned.

Getting Referred To A High Risk Pregnancy Center

Our OB referred us to a high risk pregnancy center because of my HBP and type 2 diabetes. Luckily, my HBP has been under control and since finding out I was pregnant, I’ve actually been able to stop my medication. They just want to keep monitoring it just to make sure I don’t get preeclampsia later in the pregnancy. My type 2 diabetes pre-pregnancy was controlled by diet and medication. My numbers were fine but since finding out I was pregnant, they have gone a little haywire. I’ve had to be put on insulin, which is scary but I know it’s for my health and babies health.

Is Our Baby Healthy?

Being high risk, I get to have an ultrasound once a month (a perk in my opinion!). Each ultrasound, we were so nervous but the high risk doctor said our baby boy is perfect! His heart is fine, he has legs and arms, and none of the health issues the doctor mentioned. We also decided to run a full blood work panel to see if there are any genetic conditions and that all came back wonderful!

I know it’s scary being labeled “high risk” but I feel like so far I’ve had a pretty by-the-book pregnancy. I’m always open to talk if anyone wants to discuss their pregnancy! You can DM me on Instagram.

  • We tried the tortellini from @kitehillfoods last night and it was amazing! I was not vegan growing up and it reminded me of the tortellini I ate growing up. Being vegan doesn’t mean you eat salads all day, just means you aren’t harming animals because I’m definitely a carb and junk food vegan! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • In honor of Valentine’s Day yesterday and also our 34 month anniversary, I wanted to share our story. My husband and I met on AOL when I was 11 and he was 13... that was 19 years ago!! He lived in Chicago and I lived in California. We talked online all the time. Eventually we even talked on the phone. Of course, it was just friendly but we always remained in contact. There’d be some times where we would go without talking. He had relationships and so did I. When my mom was in the hospital in August of 2015, he was just there for me in a way I didn’t know I needed. In 2016, we just started talking more and more and decided that it was time to meet. In April, he flew out to visit me in California. We haven’t been apart for more than a week since then. He’s my best friend. He is the perfect partner. Always there for me. Always makes me laugh. I hope everyone has or finds a partner like him 💖

  • When I decided to go vegan, I didn’t just eat a plant based diet... it became my lifestyle. Therefore it was important to me to make sure I used makeup that was cruelty free and vegan. One thing that was hard for me to find a good replacement for was the chapstick I used prior to going vegan. I tried so many but couldn’t find a great one. Then I came across @hurrawbalm and that’s what I’ve been using for almost 3 years now! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Today is my mom’s birthday. She would’ve been 64. She passed away in 2015 and didn’t get to see me get married or meet her grandson but I know she would be proud of me. I miss her with all of my heart and wish she could’ve met my husband and son but I see my mom in Lucas and it’s nice to see a little piece of her. Happy birthday Mom 🎂🧁⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
