update...kinda

So I have been going in two times a week for AFI (amniotic Fluid index) which is done by ultrasound...and non stress tests.  In the AFI they do just as it sounds check my amniotic fluid...in the non stress they are just monitoring the babies heartbeat...and making sure he has natural accelerations in his heartbeat.  I think I have had like 10 ultrasounds this pregnancy.

Today I met with another perinatologist, everything still is looking the same.  My amniotic fluid went down from 13 cm last week to 8 cm this week.  She said that when I go in to be monitored next week on Thursday I need to be prepared for them to tell me that I am having a c section that day.  The baby is still breech and most likely won't turn now that the fluid is going down.  And because he has problems they wouldn't try to flip him.

While we were having the ultrasound she was trying to get a doppler reading on the umbilical cord but he kept putting his hand in front of it.  His hand looked all the way normal, and he was moving it in and out of a fist.  It honestly moved me to tears.  I don't really know why but it just looked like a good hand.

Then they got this really cute profile picture of him....




I added in some labels because I know some people can't read these things at all.  LOOK at how puffed out his lips are.  Hahaa.  And look at that adorable squished little nose.  Every single time I have seen a picture of him (which is quite a few times now) He has had both hands over his face.  It is amazing to me that he is a full little person, and that he will be here in a week.  

I felt pretty good about the appointment.  I have been having a little bit of a hard week this week.  Cali is gone.  Enough said.  hahaa. 

I think it is hard for me to have everything not go as planned. 

It is really hard for me to not be able to plan.  But I honestly don't know one thing that is going to happen.  It seems like too many things are out of my control.  :)

Hopefully I can blog soon about our new house (well this house just with construction finished)...things are still a wreck around here (which doesn't help me feel settled)...but as soon as I get everything cleaned and put back in order I will post.
