Evangline update at 29 weeks 4 days
Follow up ultrasound scan this morning. She is doing wonderfully, the doctor even said that if today was a Biophysical Profile day she would have a perfect score. Best news of all, she has come from the 13th perentile for size at the 20 weeks scan to the 50% percentile today at 30 weeks. My baby girl is growing and I am so happy to know she is thriving. They estimated her at 3lbs 5oz today. They also said she had a good amount of hair already 🙂 haha. Evan had lots of dark of hair, which I don’t understand cause both Dave and I were born bald.
3 weeks and then we begin the weekly biophysicals until delivery. I can’t wait to have her in my arms so I can see that she is ok in front of me. 7-9 more weeks. If she keeps doing this well they are gonna really want me to wait until 39 weeks, but I am just so scared. Evan was a perfect healthy baby too right up until his death afterall. I am just taking it week by week, that’s the plan right now. Meeting with an Anesthesiologist on Thursday to discuss medication options, because if I want to stay on Fragmin 1 a day versus Heparin 2x a day, then I have to be aware of my options should something unexpected come up, like early labour or a unplanned emergency section. You cannot have a spinal or edidural for 24 hours after a Fragmin shot, wereas the Heparin is a 12 hour med. Thus no epidural at all for pain relief and in the case of an unplanned section I would have to be put out, not frozen.
I dread the idea of giving myself 2 shots a day with a medication that bruises and burns, boo! Also the Fragmin is fool proof in pre-messured syringes, wereas the Heparin does not. All of this with no proof I even need it. Well I have made it this far, 4 month of Fragmin now. Can’t wait til it’s over.
