I had my Baby Ellie check up today.
I am currently in my 29th week of pregnancy.
That means that today I got to drink the dreaded Glu-Cola and have my blood drawn to check for gestational diabetes.
I have done this for every pregnancy and have always dreaded drinking that crap but understand that it is a necessary precaution. I’m hopeful that everything will check out fine as it did with each pregnancy before.
I also had an ultrasound today as well.
First thing out of the tech’s mouth…..
she’s still breech.
See, here are her adorable little feet sitting nice and low where they can kick me so hard I think her foot is going to pop right out of my lady bits!
Aren’t they cute?!
Needless to say, I am not a fan of the breech position and the location of her feet and am PRAYING she flips SOON!!!!!
The thought of her staying breech and my having to undergo a c-section is terrifying me!!
Yeah, I’m not a fan of being sliced open.
Other than that, she seems to be doing pretty good in the ol’ womb.
She tends to be a little camera shy and it doesn’t make it any easier to see her since the placenta seems to be obstructing our view of her.
Oh and she prefers to keep her little face turned towards my spine making it more difficult to catch a glimpse, but we were able to get a quick peek before she ran to hide.
Of course as we are getting closer to the finish line we are all getting pretty excited around here.
I am hoping to start doing some shopping soon since we will need to purchase everything all over again.
Yep, a crib, stroller, swing…you name it….we need it.
Oh—except we don’t need a pack and play since a great friend of ours had one she never used and sent it home with us!
I have picked up a few little girly outfits here and there including a little black tutu and leggings that I cannot wait to see her in!
We are now to the point when we get to start going to the doctor every two weeks now which is also exciting.
In the meantime I am just praying that she gets herself out of the breech position or at least stops kicking so hard down there and that she will let me get some sleep….she tends to be a night owl!
Next appointment is November 4th so watch for an update then!!
