hours, days, or weeks to go- today’s ultrasound leaves more questions than answers

September 2, 2010

The ultrasound today raised concerns for baby boy. 😦  I will be seen by a specialist at the hospital tomorrow morning and will either be sent home or wheeled in for a C-section!!! It is quite a turn around of events, as at my doctor appointment just yesterday my doctor didn’t think the babies had lowered enough to be really that close to coming out.

Today’s ultrasound, at 35 weeks and 3 days, showed that she is 6 lbs and 4 oz. He is 5 lbs and 6 oz. The size difference between them, and his going from being big for gestational age to small for gestational age are both red flags. Also, my amniotic fluid is low-normal.  He is transverse, so no matter what I am getting a c-section. And that could be anytime between tomorrow  a.m. and 9/22. Guess I’d better pack my bag just in case!! (I have plenty of time for that as I doubt I’ll sleep tonight wondering what will happen at the appointment tomorrow!)
