I was relocated to the Perinatal High Risk Unit this morning. Yesterday afternoon around 4 I started bleeding pretty heavily, possibly due to a partial placental abruption. Both babies are fine and the bleeding has slowed significantly, but the Peri unit offers a higher degree of monitering for myself and the babies. Also, it is located right beside the OR in case the bleeding gets out of hand and a cesarian extraction becomes necessary. That would, of course, be for my sake because, at this point, the babies are still at a very high risk of severe prematurity. So please pray that the bleeding stays under control and the babies can stay where they are for a few more weeks.
In related news, I find it ironic that in Obama's inaugural address he expressed the belief that, "our nation relies...[on] a parent's willingness to nurture a child" (paragraph 27), especially when he's already announced his plans to the contrary: "The first thing I'd do as President is sign the Freedom of Choice Act" (Barack Obama before Planned Parenthood Action Fund, July 17, 2007).
