26 Weeks of Fun!


This week was a significant week. I always get a little nervous before I go to a doctors appointment. I am not sure why. Maybe my mom and Scott are right, that I am always looking for something to worry about?? I think they are on to something. Last night baby girl Foley was not being her normal, rambunctious self and I started worrying that maybe something was wrong. I asked a couple of friends if it was weird that I had not felt her move very much that night (even though she was a wild child all throughout the day). So, I decided not to worry too much. Every day and night we pray that our baby will be healthy along with me. Some of you knew that I had Placenta Previa, and basically in a non-graphic explanation, the placenta is in the wrong place. The doctors were not too concerned about it and said that usually when they see that, the placenta moves as the woman's stomach grows/expands/explodes. IF the placenta does not move, however, a C-Section is required for safety of the baby and mother. SO, I was a little concerned that maybe it had not moved and I was doomed (not that a C-section is the worst thing in the world). Well, we were scheduled an extra ultra sound and found out today that not only had my placenta moved, but that baby is also very healthy!
I guess how I can look at this experience is that I was given an extra couple of free ultra sounds because of the previa!! I still get one more cause my placenta is still a little low, but the doctors are not concerned. Sorry if this is TMI !!

She is beautiful! We saw her wiggling her little feet and she had them pretty much bent over her head! Seriously, can that be comfortable at all? She must get her flexibility from the Foley side cause I know that is not a Lovell characteristic!

How awesome is it that we get 4-D pictures of our babies? Okay, it is not the CLEAREST picture in the world, but you can see her chubby cheek her little nose, and closed eye. There is other random stuff that the tech said was her umbilical chord. Dang Umbilical chord gets in the pictures! Oh well, I am glad she has one!! :) To date, she weighs just over two pounds and is measuring perfectly! We feel really blessed to be parents soon and be trusted with this little baby!

So exciting! i love those 4d pictures because you can really see that they're real. She looks amazing!

(we pray for you every night too Lindsay, so you have double prayers coming your way).

Lindsay said...

Awwww!! Thanks so much Emily! That means a lot! Can't wait to see you!

yeah our doctor's office is lame--they don't have the 4-D ultrasound option. oh well, it's exciting to look forward to seeing what they look like when they're born. I think she looks like scott in the ultrasound.

Lindsay said...

Haha..Jaynee, I did not even think to start seeing who she looks like the most!! Maybe she does!!?? I dunno...hard to say right now. I think I get another one in a month so that will be cool!

I love the adorable belly pics. I think that the 4d stuff is crazy! She looks perfect!

I didn't know about the previa. Glad things are improving. I don't know what Lovell babies look like, but that looks like a Foley baby head shape to me.

Yeah, things look good! Now that I think about it...She does seem to have the FOley head. Heheh. I can't wait to meet her in person to really find out!

julz said...

AWE!! I can't wait to meet her! I had a freaky dream about your baby shower last night... no food!! Yikes baby foley would not like that! Look at those cheeks, too many McDonalds cini-mini's:)

Bradley was born Placenta Previa, and he was also laying on his side instead of head first so my mom did have a C-Section with him. He turned out okay-ish...if you consider him okay! =) She is looking beautiful though!! Im so excited for you.

Dents said...

wow, what cool pictures. She is beautiful already. With my ultrasound pictures it looked like we were going to have monster babies. I won't be in town over the 4th, that would have been great to see you and wish you the best with your little one.
