June 19th

A couple days ago at my last Prenatal appointment, my Iron had dropped to 8 points, as a result my midwife informed me she could not deliver my baby because my blood levels were so bad I would hemorage during delivery. Being only 6 days from my new delivery date, you could say I was a wreck! Yesterday Joel and I went into a lab and had my complete blood work done, My levels were thankfully up to a 10.9 (still really anemic, but better). I called my midwife last night and asked if she would deliver my baby if my levels were in the 10's she said she would prefer it bring at least to an 11, but yes she would deliver at that level. So I then asked if I could come in, in the morning to be checked, as last time she wouldnt even check me. So this morning I went in, I am dialated to almost a 3 and my cervix is softened. Today I have had contractions all day long, so I am sure we will have a new baby soon....or at least I hope soon. Who knows I guess this could go on all week long, but I am hoping to deliver before my Iron levels drop off again, I will have to get my blood drawn every few days to check levels, so it's stressful here, but right now at this moment I have someone to deliver my baby, a definate improvement over the last couple of days!!!

I agree with Lori, if I looked as cute as you while pregnant I might have a dozen babies. Good luck over the next couple days I hope everything goes great.
