    As the title says I have my 36 week growth scan and consultant appointment. My blood sugars have been good since they increased my metformin in the mornings. My lo is still breech and not turned yet so have a feeling the appt will be a discussion on ECV v c-section. I know it will depend on size of baby, fluid and room to turn, but really don't know what to opt for. :wall2: I bet I won't sleep tonight, at least it is 9am tomorrow so no hanging around.

    Ellie, do you feel hiccups? That's how I know where the head is as I feel hiccups down low. I have a hard lump up high and it's the bum xx

    I'm not sure, I thought I did, one of the most frequent movements I feel I describe like a cat pawing at a cushion before it settles down lol- sounds a bit odd? That is right across the bottom of my stomach, then I get long stretchy movements higher up. Have this hard lump under my ribs. Wish I had X-ray vision!

    Well the munchkin fooled me completely and the scan showed that he or she is head down. Had some lovely views of the face and told her to not show the bum area incase I saw something that gave the gender away. All measurements on 50th-60th centile, fluid all normal, placenta anterior. (They don't gestimate the weight). So over to the consultant blood sugars they are happy with, BP and urine all good. For a sweep on 14/8/13 at 38 weeks. If that doesn't work another in a weeks time as she doesn't want a long induction.

    Had some big shuffles a week ago but didn't feel like a turn, unless he/she moved when I was asleep. Anyway in the right place that is all that counts.
