Texas is coming to an end only 15 more days till we start our journey home! I’m excited to get back to Utah and mostly because of my Family, Horses, and Dogs. Texas has been a great experience, we have been living with another couple, and their son a few months older than Atticus. It [...]Read more
Two Saturdays ago the weather was beautiful! Alex and I had a project to work on outside and so I grabbed Atticus’ walker and brought him outside! He loved pushing his walker around and being outside with the dogs. The next day we had family dinner up at Leslee’s house and he was walking EVERYWHERE! [...]Read more
Leslee, Tiffany and I went to the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show. We were all able to leave our kids at home and enjoy a girls weekend! I woke up at 4:30 the morning we were supposed to leave to make us matching t-shirts but we didn’t really get a photo in them :/ We watched [...]Read more
So apparently blogging is not a strength of mine. Oh well what can you do? This last week has been a bit of a whirl wind, with everything to do to make it special for Alex, but Atat wanted to do his part to help and so on Tuesday the day before Alex’s birthday Atat [...]Read more
It snowed practically all day so the only thing to do was to go sledding of course! So Ariel, Steven, Thomas and our family went sledding! We went to Rock Canyon, Ariel and Steven only had two sleds so I took a tote lid and some trash bags they worked great! Atat and I went [...]Read more
These days I forget lots of things, but today it was that I am pregnant I kept stepping to close to things and hitting my stomach on them.
as I lay here Songkran is hiccuping, it’s funny to feel them, but right now it’s nice.
It all started two days ago. We went to the Drs for a regular checkup. We had a ultrasound done because this Dr likes ultrasounds. He listen to the heartbeat in that was normal and he was looking around and everything looked good he told us it was probably about 2.8 kg and that it probably about three by the time it was born. The dr then switched to a red and blue viewing I guess to see the blood flow. He became quiet as he looked and then told us the umbilical cord was wrapped around the babies neck. He suggested a c-section in the next few days.
Internally I’m freaking out a little bit, but we decided to talk to our Doula in the states and go to another doctor for second opinion and said of planning the c-section. Our doula said that we can still give birth naturally. So that calmed our fears till we could talk to another Dr. which we had scheduled an appointment for the following day at Bangkok hospital.
We met with the same dr we had seen before and explained what we were told. She said that there isn’t really anything to be done until labor. Then if the babies heart rate goes down they will do a c-section. To calm our fears and just to double check on every thing we monitored the baby for a half hour, and did another ultrasound. Their ultrasound did show the cord across the neck but they can’t be sure that it is wrapped around the neck it could just be behind the shoulder or something. To make sure everything is going smoothly I am to count movement, and go in twice a week to monitor the baby. So here is to hoping the baby will be born healthy in the next two weeks!
The search for a doctor has not been the funest thing in the world. We started with a doctor that was close to the house. She was at a newer hospital very clean and people were nice but they didn’t really speak English so I wasn’t really comfortable with it. Though Alex said she was willing to do it our way.
The second hospital we didn’t meet with a doctor just took a tour of the hospital. But they didn’t seem willing to do things our way they seemed to have their procedures and weren’t willing to stray from that. So we didn’t meet with a doctor.
The third place was really nice we liked the doctor liked the hospital. One thing against it is it is down town so if there were traffic it could take 2 hours to get to it. And then later a I was looking at there price booklet and besides being more than double what the other hospitals were if we had the baby between the hours of 10 pm and 6 am it would be an extra $800. So we were on the hunt again.
The last hospital we have looked at is close to the house (took us 20 min to get home). The doctor was hard for me to understand but he was kind of funny. He didn’t seem worried about my blood type like all the other hospitals were. And he seemed willing to do things our way. We weren’t able to take a hospital tour because they didn’t have any open rooms. But for now we are taking planning on using this hospital. I did see lots of babies at the hospital so hopefully it is a good sign.
