Christmas morning and a baby update
A little baby update, I am 38 weeks, Last week two doctors tried to turn this little girl from the breech position with no success. And let me say it was the most painful thing ever! I was clinging to the bed, biting my lip off and kicking my feet uncontrollably. They tried turning her both ways but she wouldn't budge. Afterwards my hands were shaking uncontrollably, I was pale and my lips were blue and Adam said I looked like a trauma patient. I was so sad she wouldn't turn but I had a feeling she might not, because she has been in the breech position since the first time I saw her on the ultrasound, and felt her from the outside, for as long as I can remember her head has been right by my bellybutton. And I've been trying everything to get her to move. So plan B is I have and appt. with the only doctor at the U that will deliver breech babies vaginally and if I don't meet his criteria I will be getting a C Section probably some time next week (they want to do it at 39 weeks.) I am excited and anxious to meet this little girl :) I can't believe how quick it's coming up!
