The week started very bad. As in I woke up and baby was in a weird angle and very tensed in my belly. My mom was home and made her listen to his heart beat. She tried and listen and end up counting 70 beats per minute. The belly relaxed after I walked a bit and stayed bent so he’ll have more room. I gave my doctor an e-mail and she answered very fast, saying she understands my concerns and that I should go to the hospital to be motorized even for a few days if necessary.
I called the doctor she referred me too and she said the same. So Monday I went to the hospital for a Cardiotocogram, baby did his low heart beat again, the doctor there was not concerned saying it might be again that the baby moved and the machine lost his heart beat for a few seconds. But this time she took me in for an ultrasound to see if the umbilical chord was functioning properly, and the flow was very good.
Tuesday my husband got here because he didn’t want to leave me alone anymore, in case anything went wrong with baby again. He had lots to do home and didn’t finish all of them, but didn’t want to stay far away from us any longer.
Anyway, Wednesday, I went to the doctor that has to see me now that mine is on vacation, and looked at EVERY PIECE OF TEST since I got pregnant. I got another CTG and baby behaved this time. Assured me that whatever is wrong with baby is not harming him, and he will not have long term damages. She couldn’t say 100% percent that I will have a healthy baby, because she was not God, her words, but she knows cases with babies born with the umbilical cord around their neck even two times and they are fine and healthy.
So everything looks fine. We’ll keep monitoring him at least once a week, and we hope he will be fine. Baby still didn’t turn with his head down, so I don’t know if he will. It’s uncomfortable, but I will have a C-section because of my eye condition anyway, so I guess he can stay however he wants.
Symptoms: The swollen feet disappeared at the middle of the week, I can’t say if I did something different or what is the reason for that but I’m glad. Some headaches and backaches because of my sleeping position, the usual heartburn and peeing, but other than that I’m fine.
