The new baby is squirmy. They were unable to get a heartbeat with a Doppler, so they slid an ultrasound machine ito the room and gave me a quick little peek inside. Still no heartbeat (too squirmy) but a moving baby is a live baby with a heartbeat. The little guy (or gal) is much higher than anticipated. We were all searching with the Doppler for the heartbeat down low by my c-section scar but when they actually found the baby, it was up near my belly button.
My blood sugar is low but it's not a concern. Keep eating.
My doctors do not do VBAC, so I guess I am scheduling a c-section for some Monday in November (they do scheduled sections on Mondays). I'm not thrilled about this, but I know that finding somone to let you have a VBAC is getting harder and harder, despite everyone's contention that the c-section rate is too high and they should get it down (safely). Apparently, the insurance companies run the show. It's OK. I'm a little bummed but there are up-sides to scheduling I guess.
And here is squirmy for your squinting and viewing pleasure. Head is on the left (two dark circles are eye sockets, then a bright nose, and the mouth).
Oh, and there is no one qualified to do the Ultra-Screen in NW Indiana. If I can find someone who will do it, my doctor will write me the order. Apparently, measuring the nuchal fold takes training. I am willing to travel up to 2 hours to have this test done. Does anyone know of a place from Indianapolis to Milwaukee where this is done (someone in Chicago must do this, right)?
