    they already labeled her a fall risk... they are checking her hormone levels so she goes back friday for more lab work. she spotted for three days over christmas weekend... she also has lumps in both breast that they are watching. they dont believe they are anything to worry about. just gonna watch them to make sure they dont change... she is 9 weeks along and already showing pretty good

    What's a fall risk? Never heard that term before.
    When is her due date? I think I was about 9 weeks along this time last year. Summer baby...ugh.

    she is due aug 8... fall risk means she is at risk for falling later on in her pregnancy when she gets bigger... the only reason I can thing they labelled her chart with a big red sticker saying she is a fall risk is because she is so tiny. she is 5ft 3 weight 104 lbs. .. ususally if your on meds in the hospital you will get a fall risk braclet... still not really sure why she is considered a fall risk

    daughter dumped her boyfriend... so we never had that pow wow... which is fine. we dont want him in this babys life. I have heard he is a drug user and doesnt keep a job... so dh and I will support daughter until after the baby is born then she will have to go find a job. we will still help her but she will have to do the main care of her baby... we are trying to get excited about this baby. it is hard but I am getting there...

    the spotting thing worries us because my other daughter did that in the beginning of her pregnancy and she ended up having her baby 10 weeks early... so we are taking every precaution we can to try to prevent an early birth

    spotting early on could just be implantation bleeding, which is nothing to worry about
