Preparing for the worst

Okay, so I'm itchy again today.

Dh had suggested that maybe I was itching because of the new soap I put in our shower. So I took a bath last night and made sure to rinse well but I'm itching again today.

So okay. If this is it then I've done my homework, I know what I need to do. It's time to go to a low-fat diet, make sure I keep up drinking at least 2 gallons of water a day. I'm taking Benefiber and I'm reinstating my tinctures (which taste horrible). Tomorrow when I get my results back from the lab I'll call my OB and tell her I have to see her asap and we can talk about starting the steroids at 29 weeks to help baby's lung mature more quickly so that we can plan on inducing no later than 37 weeks. That's August 29. I actually will feel a lot safer if we can agree on 36 weeks, August 22.

Today I feel really calm and confident that I can take every precaution and get baby out of here alive.
