Curve Ball #1

Yes, I'm anticipating more of these. I just came back from my MFM appt. had my final BPP and growth ultrasound. And guess what? My baby girl, with lots of hair, has decided to flip into a breech position. Complete breech. Not transverse, head is up by my ribs.

I knew something was different yesterday. I woke up and was able to walk without the round ligament pain, the pelvic pressure, all in all I was feeling great. I called and told my husband I thought she was breech because the pelvic pressure was gone. Then I felt something in my ribs and thought, well maybe she isn't.

Well, she is breech. One week away from scheduled induction. Oh well, if I have to have a C section, I'm OK with that. I just want her alive and well.

Oh and her estimated weight, 6 lbs 10 oz, 77th percentile. Wow! She's pretty big isn't she for 35 weeks 3days.

I'll keep all of you posted.

Oh, fun curve ball! Who knows, maybe she'll decide to do a flip again. Bottom line is that it's so exciting that you are so very close. Yay!!!

Sorry for the curve ball but YAY for being so close.. I cant wait till I am at that point. Just have a lot of stress etc to deal with until then. Cant wait to hear she is in your arms. Take care, not much longer....

Isn't it bizarre how we have adapted - I remember so wanting a vaginal birth the first time (which I did get but not how I wanted) and now, if I'm lucky enough to get pregnant & carry to term, I don't care how the baby comes, as long as it's alive. Very exciting!
