26 week update...

‎I'm updating on the same day as my appt... whoa :D

26 week update... I gained another 4.5 pounds :/ my BP was good at 120/78. My tummy measures 3 weeks big (2 weeks ago it was 4 weeks big so???) Jaxon sounds great! His hb was 148. He's definitely a mover, doc commented on his moving again :)

We up the lovenox to twice a day in 2 weeks. We'll switch to heparin at the end. I'm terrified baby will be breach... he said he is one of two docs around here that will do breach delivery but he wont induce while baby is breech (is it ea or ee?) But if he us breech at 36-37 weeks when we plan to induce, he will wait until 37 then attempt to flip the baby so we can induce.

Sounds like a good update! I hope Jaxon gets into the right position and stays there.

Sounds like a great appt! There's still lots of time for your little guy to flip. I think our LO still flips every once in awhile because one day I'll feel hiccups down low in my belly and then the next day I'll feel them up high. Just a guess though, lol. Anyway, I hope he does flip and stay head down soon!

Thanks ladies, he does flip back and forth every single day right now, I've just got that nagging feeling that he's gonna be a stinker!!!

And I don't know yet exactly how I feel on trying to flip the baby or how I feel about attempting a breech delivery if it comes to that, but it's nice to know that I at least have those options with my OB, KWIM.

Good appt Torie! Keep telling Mr. Jaxon to turn baby turn. Glad to hear you are okay after your fall. Be careful!!

Great appointment! I love hearing baby every time, so fun. There is lots of time for baby to flip-My last was breech up until 35 weeks! There's a website called spinning babies that has tips on how to get baby to flip later if they are being stubborn. Not full proof but can't hurt :)

I'm so glad everything is going so well! I'm hoping Jaxon cooperates & isn't breech when it's time for delivery!

Oh Torie...how scary that you tripped and hit your belly! :smileysurprised: But babies are pretty resilient in there with all that fluid surrounding them.

So glad to hear that little Jaxon is doing so well though! Hope he flips around before birth. He's still got time.

Thanks ladies, I know he still has time to move, I'm just worried he'll run out of room... I was told that I have a smaller than normal uterus and the baby would run out of room to flip much earlier than normal... I don't know if that is still holding true, I think I'll ask at my mfm appt what he thinks as far as the room Jaxon has in there.

And as for the tripping, it did scare me because it actually hurt, but when I took a step back and thought logically, I realized that it more than likely hurt because my belly is all bruised from the lovenox injections and not from anything regarding the baby, so I was able to keep my sanity about that one, and the doc agreed with my reasoning. I told him I didn't even know what I tripped over and he laughed and said there doesn't need to be anything - when you can't see your feet, it's easy to trip over nothing.
