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.
