Looking Good!

Posted: August 1st, 2008 | Author: | Filed under: Pregnancy | 4 Comments »

So I had my first doppler today to check out the bloodflow of the placenta, everything looks good. Both babies have a good amount of fluid, membrane looks good, bloodflow is good, no one seems to be taking more than their fair share. Baby B acted as usual- popping in where ever. Baby A did a little better today although it wasn’t as detailed so maybe s/he wasn’t as bothered by the disruption.

They are both breech today- last time they were both transverse. That might explain why it looks like I have a head poking out from under my left breast…These two better figure out that they need to be head down soon- none of this breech/ transverse business, an extra 2 weeks paid sounds great but I don’t do well with wound care so I’d rather skip the c-section!

Sleeping has now become a problem- I can’t get comfortable at all. I toss and turn from side to side and have finally realised I probably need to get me some pillows. My hips hurt, my arm goes numb and I can’t do the semi-stomach sleep anymore. Last night I’m pretty sure I was awake until about an hour before the alarm went off.

    Um, I’m not so sure I know what transverse is, but I agree, 2 weeks additional paid does not sound like a great deal compared to a c-section.

    Transverse is when they are laying horizontal, like in bunk beds. We need at least Baby A to be head down if we want them to come out how nature intended. Personally I’d like them to just appear in an isolette next to me but I’ve been told this is not an option…pain before or pain after, pick your poison.

    Erin,
    Charley & Jax changed position until 37+ weeks… so don't let them scare you into making a decision until you have to. My OB tried to convince me to choose a C-section at least a month beforehand. I told her that I wanted to wait and see what position they were in at the end. (I wanted NOTHING to do with a C-section. Too scary to me– I know, they're both scary, but…) They changed position every time we did an ultrasound. In the end… no C-section and two healthy babies (even though B (Jax) was transverse until A (Charley) came out). Seriously, just drag your feet on this. No need to make a decision for a while!!

    Hi Beki!
    I’m really not too worried- my midwife and OB would rather not do a C-Section so I don’t think they would put that on the table anytime soon. It is always in the back of my mind though- especially when we never see them vertex! We’ve got time and room though, so anything can happen.
