Following along our adapting birth plan fate a failed ECV we were to see a specalising breech birth team at another hospital (not all only 2 hospitals offer breech birth because of training) This was scheduled for Monday. We were sent for a split growth scan on Thursday (26th) to check AFL and placenta function And we're booked to check growth the following Thursday 2nd This scan showed not only a dramatic drop in AFL from 10 days earlier but a drop below safe levels we were sent to the hospital and admitted booked for an elective c section on the emergancy listing

not a November bub . But grandma said she can have her great grandmother's opals
Update. Growth and wellbeing scan today And bub is still breech. Also stubborn and lazy and not moving a lot . They made me go have lunch to get them to perk up and move as a leg was obstructing some measurements . They did move. A little so the measurements could get taken . Generally measuring in 22nd centile and an estimated 2.7kg
Everything seemed fine baby is just being lazy and not turning ....
1) How far along are you? 36+6 2) Any appointments this week or last week? How did it go? baby is breech. We have ultrasound today to check positioning and appointment tomorrow with midwife to discuss it . 3) Cravings/symptoms? My ankles ache at the end of the day and often I wake up with sore hips and shoulders from side sleeping. Other than being tired not too bad 4) Rants/raves/concerns? I'm starting to stress about running out of time to get everything ready and to turn bub. I'm starting to feel like I'm losing control of this experience or control on how I'll cope with it There's a lot going on all at the same time and doesn't seem to be a point of constant I think I'm most anxious about, no matter what ,in a few weeks there's going to be a little baby here and it still baffles me 5) Anything else you want to add/ask? 6) GTKY: Are you planning to bring music / a playlist / anything to listen to during labor? If so, what kind of music or content? yes absolutely we live by music. We have a selection of gentler folk and pagan metal . And kind of new folk music as well as our hypnosis tracks . Anything we have that's enjoyable assn ambiance to listen to and nothing that irritates me. We put music on before bed a fair bit and so most of that will be available to put on
