Although this pregnancy hasn't been easy on me, I decided it was a trade off. I had an easy pregnancy with Liam then he had a struggle. So this time we are just getting the struggles out of the way early.
Last week I had an ultrasound to check the position of Baby Fudge.
Liam was breech, so we have a repeat c-section scheduled for the 24th, but the doctor wanted to check anyway. I have an apparent skill for growing breech babies as this one is too.
But during the ultrasound the tech also found the fluid around her to be low. It's not at a dangerous point just lower than they'd like. In addition to the fluid, Baby's stomach is also measuring small. This may be a result of the fluid level, or it may mean she is just skinny. Everything else is measuring as it should.
They of course do not want me to worry about it; yeah right!
So today I go for another ultrasound and "we'll see from there". Which pretty much leaves everything to the imagination, but there are 3 real possibilities.
1. I have been dehydrated and need to drink more water ( this is what the doctor is hoping for, but he obviously doesn't realize the amount of water I already drink)
2. The doctor will be sending me to a specialist ( but really with 3 weeks left, what's the specialist going to do?)
3. This baby will be coming sooner than expected.
We are so not ready for this baby to come yet!
Help us just continue to pray for a healthy baby.
