We saw the Dr today

Our old Dr that is, the one who delivered Katya.

Good news is that the baby appears to be healthy and growing (he's gained about a pound in the last 4 weeks), and I appear to be recovering well from surgery and have actually gained back 4 of the 6 or so pounds I had lost in the first week after surgery.

Bad news is that I should continue mostly on bed rest for the foreseeable future (should not pick up Katya, should not do laundry or mop, etc.), and the Dr is recommending a C-section as opposed to a natural birth to avoid the risk of a hernia and the necessary surgery to repair it at the scar site.

He was willing to keep options open until closer to the due date as we get a better feel for the shape I am in and if it looks like a simple or difficult delivery. But since operation to due date is a week or so short of the 90 days they would consider the time needed for the scar to fully heal, he advises avoiding the risks of a normal labor.

In other news, I continue to have less contractions and continue to be weaned off of the anti-contraction medications, both of which are a good thing for the baby.

I think that pretty much covers things for the moment. We will have to continue trying to find daily help for now, so appreciate your prayers on that count.

Sounds like you're handling it as well as you can. Having recovered from a similar operation, I can't imagine dealing with that recovery while pregnant and having a toddler running around. When I pray, I'll pray for peace and joy in the midst of the challenges
