31 Weeks

Baby Hudson is kinda like a peanut in its shell. There's not that much we know about him right now. I do know that Baby Hudson's heart is always beating. He usually has beautiful rises and falls in his heart rate which the doctors love to see. Very rarely he has really low drops in his heart rate which make the doctors scared so they do extra monitoring to make sure he's stable. Sometimes his heart beats irregularly but the doctors know it's normal for him so they don't mind it so much. I also know that Baby Hudson is still growing. His 30 week ultrasound showed him in the 57th percentile overall. His estimated weight is 3 pounds 8 ounces. His head measured at something like 34 weeks but his ventricles have remained stable since surgery which is positive. I know Baby Hudson is still breech, but that doesn't matter too much since I'll deliver by c-section. His head is up by my ribs on the left side, his bum is down near my cervix, and his legs are up by my ribs on the right side. I feel him hiccuping in my lower abdomen at least 3 times a day. I know Baby Hudson's lower back is squished down near my pelvic bone so they haven't been able to get a good image of the skin closure at the surgery site. We just assume it's healing over well. Other than that we don't know much else about how Baby Hudson is doing. We just keep hoping he keeps growing for 21 more days! ETA: October 8, 2012.
