Evangeline is a superstar…and also that is not my butt you are rubbing.
Evangeline was done her first biophysical profile today in 5 minutes. She got an 8/8 in 5 minutes. She is allowed 30.
First thing she did as I lay on the table was punch my bladder or so I though, then kick the ultrasound wand, then roll side to side, so all her required movements, big and small were done, just like that. They looked at her chest rise and fall and said it’s so wonderful she is practicing her breathing so much already, her kidneys are great and the flow of blood through the umbilical is strong and clear. In other words she rocks and she has hair.
However. She is also an acrobat. I know I felt strong and painful movements this past week, but the freaking child has turned breach again….footling breach. She was head down last week. That giant bump I have been poking that keeps morphing out of my right side is her damn head not her butt. The lady said don’t panic, there is just a good a chance next week she will be head down again since she is so active, but if she is not turned by 36 weeks, we have to plan for a c-section delivery. I said I could care less really, I hugely preffer a vaginal delivery, but if she cries when she is born she can come anyway she wants.
So that is the latest and greatest Evangeline scoop. This one is gonna be a wild one, she not a laid back child haha.
So happy to see her thriving on that screen that I almost started bawling, the nurse was amazing and very empathic with how hard this is for me to go through.
