I can't believe you're so close!!!
Oh, and I totally know what you mean about not being able to get around as easily with the 2nd baby. Having a toddler really throws a curve ball into things, doesn't it?
...to check on the position of this kiddo! The only appointment they had for the rest of the week (by the time we finished playing phone tag) was tomorrow at 2 pm. I will have them manually check on baby's position, and if they are unsure, I will have to get an u/s...not sure if that is a right away, go to the hospital for the u/s or schedule it at the outpatient u/s place. I am kinda hoping it is a right away thing if needed, b/c DS won't be with me. I would hate to have to try to schedule something else into a short time span. When the only appt. they had was tomorrow at 2, I told them to pencil it in and I would talk to my boss, since I am supposed to work 8-6:30 tomorrow. I think since it was a baby thing, my boss didn't question it too much...I was afraid it wouldn't be possible with other people being off for the holidays...but he said it is doable for me to leave after lunch. I HATE to use up PTO time that would be better used on maternity leave, but I am making myself NUTS not knowing which way is up with this little man. IF he is breech, I guess we start talking external version at 37 weeks...hopefully he is head down and it is a non-issue.
I will update tomorrow afternoon once I know something!
Glad you could get in sooner- not knowing would be killing me too! I hope baby has cooperated and moved head down!

I hope LO is head down for you & MW can tell w/out u/s. The same thing happened with DS2 because MW found the HB so high up on me & she 2nd guessed herself. Low & behold he was head down. Hope its the same for you.

Good luck I hope baby has turned for you.

Well ladies, I do not come bearing good news. 3 out of 3 providers over the last 4 weeks have said breech... Sadly they didn't send me straight to the hospital for an u/s. I go for an u/s Monday afternoon and have another MW appointment next Wednesday. She was saying we can try other things before a version (chiropractor, acupuncture)...I am just frustrated b/c we are running low on time. Anyway...will try anything I can between now and monday...and then see what the u/s says and go from there. I might download the hypnobabies turn baby track too.
Sorry it wasn't better news. Spin baby spin!
Ack! No way!
I'd start working every trick in the book to get the little bugger to turn. Check out the spinningbabies.com site (which you probably already have), use the Hypnobabies track, get to a Webster trained chiro, and find someone who knows how to do moxibustion http://www.glorialemay.com/blog/?p=258
Turn baby turn!
