I had an appt this morning to check for
progress. Dr. says I’m making slow progress, only a little change, so that’s good.  We believe that the little stinker flipped around and he may be breech.  He still has some time to flip head down, but I go in next week for an
ultrasound to check and discuss the possibility of manually trying to
turn him via a version. I really hope he flips before then. I do not
want to have a c-section if I can avoid it but the version doesn’t
sound pleasant at all either. I hope it doesn’t come to that.

The
scary part, when I got there the nurse checked his heart rate and it
was at 195! As soon as she put the dopplar on my belly, I just started
to panic, it sounded wayyyyyy too fast. The Dr. listened for awhile and it was between 175 and 195 (normally he’s
around 150-155 tops). So they kept me for an NST. After 20 minutes she was comfortable with his
baseline so they sent me home but now I’m sitting
here worrying that something is wrong.  I just want our little man to be ok.

  • My thoughts are with you all 🙂

  • Love the name you picked! Take care of yourself and your little guy. I bet he’s just fine b/c they wouldn’t have sent you home if they thought there was any complication, right? That’s what I think anyway. Blessings to you both.

  • I’ll say a prayer that all turns out well. If the events of the last few weeks say anything about his personality, you’re going to have your hands full(as if you don’t already)!

  • Was your heartrate elevated too? Maybe that had something to do with it? I know when they told me my daughter was breech and then discussed the version MY heartrate jumped up! Totally freaked me out, but everything turned out fine, and everything will for you too. Hang in there!
