But when the temperature dropped, my swelling didn’t wane.
My doctor kept saying, "Oh honey, that's just pregnancy!" So I trusted her.
I got induced at 7 p.m. that Monday — the day after my beautiful baby shower and just hours after my doctor told me to come in for blood sugar testing.
But when I got the medicine, I started to feel worse — not better.
All I wanted to know was that I was going to be okay.
I am one of the lucky ones. I know it. I thank god every single day for that.
If something is not right, if you don't feel like yourself, and if your gut is telling you something is wrong...trust it.
