Legs and abdomen of Thomas

Maddy Breathing
Madelynn's Profile

First...I want to say a word about this day. It is a day that will always be in our memories. My thoughts and prayers are with the families that lost loved ones on this day 7 years ago.

Next, I want to share what we learned today at our appointment. We had our weekly BPP and NST and consultation with Dr. Holsten (our OB). All went really well. Thomas' head is really ...really low. Madelynn is still breech. After talking with Dr. Holsten, we learned that the likelihood of a C-Section is high at this point. She is worried that a vaginal delivery will be too risky if Maddy stays in this position. She could deliver Thomas beautifully at this point and still have to rush to do a C-Section for Maddy. That would be too much on us would be safer to just be prepared for the C-Section first. Shannon and I are good with whatever she decides. My first choice of course is vaginal but I also want what is best first and foremost! We are totally trusted in Dr. Holsten.

We did get a few pictures so I will share those also. It is hard to get Thomas due to his head being SO low...his face is just smooshed and pictures are hard to get. You can see his nose and lips in one shot but that is about it.

Dr. Holsten also checked me and my cervix has thinned some and I am 1 centimeter dilated....but that doesn't necessarily mean anything. It can still be a week or 4 body is just preparing. I do have to share....she could feel Thomas' little head when she did the check....which is just amazing to me. Sorry if that offends anyone!

All-in-all it was a great appointment. We are just so glad to have such wonderful doctors watching over our angels!!!
