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 πŸ™‚ 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.

β€œLife is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” β€” Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. WHAT?? almost 30 weeks???!!! how did that happen?? LOL!!

  2. Stay away from the heparin if you can. That stuff is evil. I switched over the day before my c-section, and that was enough. I was on it for weeks in my first pregnancy, and dear god does it sting.
    Congrats on 29 weeks!!! That’s a great weight and everything. She’s really doing great, and so are you.

    • I know. boo! I will try to be on it for as little time as possible to avoid the discomfort.
      THANKS πŸ™‚ she is doing so awesome. I pray she keeps at it.
      Evan was so healthy and perfect that I just don’t trust anything anymore. boo.
