Quick 36 week update!


I’m gonna make this quick because I have a horrible cold and I feel MISERABLE. Peyton is doing just fine in mommy’s belly 🙂 both NSTs this week were great! On Monday, the doctor felt around my belly and did an internal check and SWORE up and down that Peyton was head down! … I didn’t believe it for a second lol He said he was either feeling a head or a very boney butt. I bet on the boney butt 😉 He was so certain that he postponed scheduling the c section until today’s ultrasound for confirmation.

Ultrasound verdict: She is as “frank breech” as they come. I don’t know how he missed feeling her head up top… but it is definitely still there lol The cord is still the same so I am now waiting for a phone call from scheduling to schedule the c section for next week.

I wish I could say I am excited… but I’m just scared and nervous. I hate the idea of forcing her out…and early no less. The doctor told us that because of the “growth restriction” that I may not be able to hold her right away… which is completely devastating to me. I truly hope there are no hiccups and I will be able to see her as soon as possible. Everything that I wanted in the birth experience is pretty much being taken away from me and I’m really having a hard time dealing with it. I know it’ll be worth it in the end, but it is still a hard pill to swallow. All I want is for her to be healthy and happy… and for me to have her in my arms safe and sound as soon as I possibly can.

Think good thoughts, send positive vibes, pray or whatever you’re into ❤

    1. You, Aaron and Peyton will make it through this with strength , love and faith! You will get to hold your beautiful baby as soon as possible. The Doctor is just preparing you for what possibly could occur. Little Emily was 3lbs and we couldn’t hold her right away, but she came home at 4lbs and that was 25 years ago!!!! It’s important for Peyton to keep her body temperature up that’s why holding her would be delayed just a little!! Love you sweet girl!
