I set off for my appointment a little more nervous than usual. Over the past two days baby girls movements have changed a little. Normally whenever I sit down she goes crazy. I didn't know if I'd just been busier than usual but something wasn't the same.
I arrived at my appointment, urine was good and blood pressure was fine. The midwife then measured my belly. I'm still measuring two weeks behind but have grown 3cm in 3 week so right on track, just a little smaller than average. She next felt my stomach. She spent a lot longer today trying to work out where baby girl was. Turns out she is in a transverse position. My midwife said she has until 36 weeks to turn around before they would consider turning her manually. I really hope she turns around. I was actually almost 32 weeks at my appointment so she has a month!
I called Mark right away to update him and he came out of work and we went to get monitored. It took forever for them to find baby girls heartbeat, such a scary situation to be in! Your mind just races. When they eventually found her heartbeat they had a hard time trying to keep it. Finally we were hooked up and our 30 minutes of monitoring could start. They like to get a trace of the heartbeat for half an hour while you push a button every time you feel movement.
