Oh my we have less then 10 weeks to go! I can not wait to meet her! Here are a little updates! I have a few days here and there that I'm just not sure if we should name her Oaklee. Don't get me wrong I love the name. I just don't know if I should give her such different/not so common name. Emma keeps coming to my mind. I mentioned this to Rhett and he said that he rather do Oaklee. I said what if she hates us for giving her that name. He said at one point everyone has probably dislikes there name for some reason. He said that his name is not that common and is different and he likes it. So for now we will name her Oaklee... No I'm sure she will end up with the name Oaklee. Like so many of my friends have pointed out that I have loved the name for forEVER!
We are also down to having appointments every two weeks! This has been going on for about a month now! I'm starting to get tired of going. I mean it's great that we get to hear her heartbeat everytime. About a month ago the doc told us that she is now head down!!! She is getting so big and isn't as active as she used to be. Which scares me sometimes. Rhett likes to remind me that she isn't going anywhere she is here to stay. ( I love him, and I don't think I could do this without him, he keeps me grounded)
Yesterday we had our appointment.. Everything was normal, walk in, sign your name and let them know that you have arrived. Then we sit in the waiting room and just wait and wait to be called back. We get called back, then I get weighed (I hate this part), then I get to go pee in a cup ( which I hate even more then getting weighed.) The nurse has us go in a room she takes my blood pressure, and then more waiting for the doc. Doctor T walked in and asked how everything was going. I let him know that she isn't as active as she used to be. He said well if you don't feel her moving you need to get checked into the hospital right away. I assured him that I feel her throughout the day, just not crazy movements or a lot. He had me lay down on the bed and lift my shirt. He couldn't feel her. I was getting so worried. I knew she was there, I mean where could she had gone?? He couldn't feel her head so he was worried that maybe she had become breech with in the past two weeks. I let him know that I hadn't felt a big movement like that. Then he said that maybe her back was facing my back, I let him know that I had been experiencing a lot of back pain... He said that must have been it. I also let him know that I have been feeling harder movements under my boobs like she is kicking or moving her legs and flutters down below like her hands are moving. Then came time for the heartbeat, MY FAVORITE PART!!!.. buuuuuuttttt he couldn't find it. I was getting so scared I looked at Rhett who gave me his normal reassuring look as everything is fine!! Then Doctor T asked " You did say that you felt her today, right?" Oh my, I almost cried.. Of course I have felt her. But then I started thinking, okay when did I feel her? I thought for sure he was going to move us in the ultrasound room.. but thankfully my little pray was answered.. he finally heard her heartbeat!!! I asked him since he found it, and where he found it if that meant she wasn't breech. He said that if we find her heartbeat under/below the belly button most likely she is not BREECH!!!
Seriously that is the scariest thing I have ever went through. I never want to go through it again. My heart was beating so fast. Its so strange that you can love someone so much that you have never meant. I so happy that I still get my little one in February!
