Arizona did pass her next biophysical ultrasound.
A lot of things have been happening plus I haven't been feeling well. My baby is doing good, but we have had some scares.
After she failed that NST things seems to go back to normal and she was pretty active, just not consistently. She passed all of her biophysical ultrasounds since then and there hasn't been too much going on except now everything is crazy. My SO had a health scare 2 weeks ago that has had me scared. It was on the weekend and he woke me up at 3am in the morning with facial numbness on both sides, both of his arms were numb and his hands were contracted so he couldn't move them. I was pissed because I was in a dead sleep so I told him to just take some Benadryl...I was half awake and not fully thinking. Anyways, it did go away, but later that day the same thing happened when we got a bill from our old apartment complex. We gave them all our info so they could update things in their systems and they did none of that so they sent us a bill for crap they said we owed them to "fix" the apartment we moved out of. My SO had reported the issues multiple times so he was pissed. His face had numbness on both sides and his left arm was numb with his left hand contracted so he couldn't move it. I called my mom and she said possibly TIA aka mini-stroke. I called the on call doctor for his PCP and it was his PCP. She wanted him seen and evaluated at the ER, so we went to the ER. They started doing a cardiac work up on him, but stopped when we got his labs back. He had low calcium and low potassium. Severely low calcium and severely low potassium. Potassium can cause heart issues if it's too low or too high. So we saw a different doctor for follow up since his PCP was out of the office that day. She assumed he only had a vitamin D deficiency,
The vast majority of people today have some sort of vitamin D deficiency because we just are not out in the sun. My SO especially, so my mom felt with his labs, it's an Endocrine issue. I'm a type 1 diabetic and my PCP is my Endocrinologist. So I messaged him on the patient portal and he said he was concerned. He gave me a list of labs to have done by the PCP since my Endo is booked 4 months out and to have the results faxed to him. So we are finishing up getting labs drawn tomorrow morning. My Endo is having every single thing he can think of done so my Endo and my SO's PCP can rule things out. Right now we are looking at primary aldosteronism or hypoparathyroidism. Both are rare and both can cause the baby to have issues.
I told my MFM and OB about it. They know I have high anxiety and I'm freaking out about it because my SO's mother hinted that their family commonly has those issues. If it's hereditary it can cause major problems for my little girl.
My MFM assured me he has seen nothing on my ultrasounds, but he is putting in for the pediatrician to do extra testing so if there's a problem we can get her the help she needs. My OB is doing the same thing.
However, after him being seen in the ER my insulin needs dramatically reduced. I was on 145 units of long acting insulin and in a day I needed only 100 units of long acting insulin, so my placenta function is decreasing. My endo and OB agree I won't make it to 39 weeks. My OB is hoping I will make it at least 2 more weeks, but my MFM told my OB he wants me having biophysical ultrasounds twice a week to see if they can buy my little girl more time. He lung maturity is 2 weeks behind babies born to non-diabetics. She is measuring right on track, but I am ready for answers and ready to be done with it all. I'm just trying to take things each day at a time since things are just getting crazy.
