I had a checkup today to ensure my cervix was still behaving. (Thankfully, it was. All looks good for now.)
While I was waiting in the exam room at my high-risk OBs' office, I noticed an appointment schedule on the bulletin board. It listed women by name, and included a "notes" field. In the notes field were things like, "triplets -- wants reduction" and "blood clot in neck." Leaving aside the obvious privacy concerns, it kind of drove home for me how lucky we have been so far in this pregnancy.
Sure, we have some adversity. But things could be a lot worse.
