    Red face Fetal Echo results :)

    We finally had our fetal echo done today, only 10 weeks late (grrrrr). Luckily they were able to get some good views of baby's heart and rule out any major abnormalities. Valves look good and blood flow was just as it should be! At this gestational age that's as good of a report as we can expect

    Baby is measuring a bit ahead still, though not enough for them to change my EDD. She's weighing in at just over 5lbs now though - she's gonna be a bruiser I'd say.

    Unfortunately with less than 7 weeks left she's not only in breach but her bum is wedged tightly in my pelvis already. They tried to confirm gender but she was way too low (not to mention facing my back) and they couldn't even get close to getting a peek. I had been thinking she dropped (at least a bit) over the weekend because suddenly I can eat a full meal and am having a much easier breathing. Hopefully we can get her to turn around in the next few weeks so I can avoid a section!

    Going to check out spinningbabies.com!

    I'm glad they were able to rule out major abnormalities. That is very relieving for the baby and you all! From my experiences with u/s weights, they can be off, so don't worry toooo much about it. My dr was predicting my third baby to be 11 pounds. He was 8#11oz at birth, on the bigger side, but still quite off. For the others, they had them pegged at low birth weight and they were just fine.

    I can feel the baby is getting heavier and my bones are softening up. Truth be told, feels like they are breaking apart when I stand up. I don't think this baby has dropped the least bit because I can seriously not handle more than a glass of water at a time. I can't drink and eat. I can only drink OR eat.

    Can you feel the baby's head at the top of your belly? I mean, is it really obvious when you feel your belly that your baby is breech?

    Do they think your baby will turn or it's too buried?

    You can definitely feel her head, I had been hoping it was her bum but DH said it felt too round and he was right (I was just trying to be hopeful), they said she still has time to turn but then they couldn't even get close to her little butt for pics because she was so low so we'll have to just wait and see.

    5lbs right now puts her at around the same weight as my DD1 (8'4 @37 wks) when she was born.
