Midwife appointment... another u/s scheduled

I had my midwife appointment today and it went well. I am up about 3 pounds from my last appointment, up to 119. My urine looked good and BP was 107/74. My midwife checked baby's position and she guessed breech at first but then when I explained that he likes to shove his hands out in my hips she said he very well could be head down then, especially after she found the heart beat and where it was located. His HR was in the 150s-160's as well cause I had a contraction right before that and with my midwife feeling position. I am measuring 27 weeks now, i'm nearly 32, but my midwife says as long as she sees a decent increase in measurement that is fine. Especially since I measured small with my other two pregnancy's as well. If you remember from my ultra sound at 19 weeks my placenta was low and close to the cervix, well my midwife would really like me to go get another one around 35 weeks to make sure it has indeed moved up. It's was only 1.6cm away from my cervix and they like to see it 3cm or further away.

So with all that being said I could really use some prayers and placenta move vibes as well as some grow baby grow vibes!!! lol. I really don't like measuring this far behind and I really would like my home birth which I can't have if my placenta is still too low.

Oh only one more appointment till my home visit AND I very well could get the birth kit ANS the birth pool at the next visit!! I can't believe how close this is getting!!!

Sending all the vibes I can that baby boy is growing perfect and you get your home birth.

As a mom you worry even if you feel confident things are a-ok. It's amazing it's so close, huh?! Seems like just the other day we were finding out the gender!

Sending placenta moving vibes, I hope it moved out of the way. I am sure baby is just fine if your other 2 were small I mean this one will be small. Plus you are small yourself.

Kup! I can't believe it's almost time to have the babies!

Placenta moving vibes being sent your way. And some grow vibes too though it sounds like your babies tend to be on the small side so my guess is you're okay. I really hope you can have your home birth Smile
