so went for a 3D scan yesterday. it was lovely and we did get to see her, she's beautiful i've put a pic here too.. but..
the sonographer seemed really worried because i'm 30 weeks, but she's fully engaged and really low. he almost couldn't get to her because her head was so low. all the pics we have are only of half her face because the other side was squashed into my pelvis. also he said she doesn't have enough fluid especially around her head so she might not be drinking, so i need to contact my labour ward asap to get a emergency scan to check her kidneys.
he said she's definitely going to be early as she's already ready for labour. when your amniotic fluid levels drop to how low mine are, the cervix will think it's ready to dialate, so i could be looking to have her in about 4 weeks?
also she has already dropped into position which is putting pressure on my cervix again tricking it into dialating early.
AND. if i go to the NHS now and there is something wrong with her kidneys and she isn't drinking enough they'll have to get her out now.
how glad am i that i went for the 3D scan!?? i need to ring midwife today.. but i know they're going to ask me to come in and my OH isn't home yet. so i'll be ringing them this afternoon. i'm nervous!
yeah as i was reading that i was going to write 'bet your glad you had a 3d scan now' then you wrote it at the end
I really hope she's ok babe, i'm sure it'll all be ok, they thought i was going into preterm labour not long ago, gave me steriods and stuck me in the delivery suite on a ctg... but he decided to stay in there... hope she does the same for you lots of hugs and kisses to u and bump xoxoxoxx
she has got her nose and lips 100% from my OH !! the lips were scary, in some of the pics they're the spitting image of each other!
yeah i'm hoping the guy is just being over cautious, but i'm so glad i had it so i can double check everything!! i'll let u know what happens when i ring up in a bit. i bet they just ask me to come in and do a scan or something.. just worried because if she doesn't drink she'll have permanent damage to her kidneys.
apparently she's 'above average' size haha. nice way of saying she's fat xx
i was born with kidney complications (only got 1 working one since birth)
and i know from what my mum has said how scary it was.
fingers crossed everything is fine!
and shes a gorgeous baby by the way!
