Weekend Wellness

Jessica here…still
How was my weekend you ask? It was fine. Full of romping, running, and enjoying the brisk early autumn weather… How was Karen’s weekend? It was fine… Full of contractions, kicks to her bladder, and most recently enjoying her newly itchy hands and feet! Ahh… The joys of pregnancy.

I have a SERIOUS case of writers block tonight, but need to get the info out to Karen’s pep squad! 🙂 So let me give it to you in bulleted form… OK?

  • Karen is still Pregnant.
  • The babies are all still doing well!
  • No we still don’t know what she’s having (but I have some SERIOUS hunches)
  • Her Doctor from this weekend scheduled her for a C-Section on Friday the 21st.
  • Karen didn’t agree with this idea and now we’re back to having no scheduled date.
  • Yom Kippur begins Friday at dusk.
  • On Saturday evening Karen developed intense itching in her hands and feet.
  • Her Doctor from this morning thinks the itching may be a pregnancy condition called Cholestasis.
  • They also think this may be what is causing the slightly elevated liver panels from last week.
  • This is not to say that the pre-eclampsia is still not an option.
  • Karen’s Blood Pressures have been good, but still elevated.
  • When I talked to her on Saturday she had a terrible headache…
  • On Sunday she felt and sounded much better…

That’s all I’ve got folks… I hope you’re all doing well and that you all enjoyed this awesome weather we had this weekend!! I’m absolutely worn out from running after the kids outside all weekend! Feel free to post in the comments if there’s something I missed, or if there’s questions you have, I’ve been keeping up with the comments… So I’ll see any questions ya’ll throw out there!
