Thanks ladies!! I came on here to post about some news I got and was excited to see I have my own lodge!! Wow this pregnancy has just flown by!!! I'll post more about me and my waterbabies in a bit and now that I have my lodge I'll post about my news in here.
I'm planning a homebirth and yesterday I went to see my backup midwife. Well as she was feeling the baby she said she didn't think the baby was head down so she wanted to do a quick u/s. (not in front of her but...) I kinda rolled my eyes, she's obviously not like my mw's, they wouldn't rush to do an u/s, she's a medicalized midwife But fine I didn't want to piss her off and mess it up for my homebirth mw considering all the malpractice and how lucky she is to have this back up dr and mw. Well sure enough as soon as she places the wand thingy where she thought the head was, there was her head! She's breech. Now I know she must have just turned and thinking back, it explains why things were so different starting on Sunday. (you'd think I would have noticed a flip with this being my 4th but I just thought she was more active) So of course the news was disappointing because now I would have to get care through them till the baby turns. She asked if I was up for an aversion, and my head not being clear I said yes. So it's scheduled for tomorrow. Obviously she still has room in there to turn but the dr will not wait till next week cuz she might be too big for the aversion to be a success. (bull) So after I left I called my orginal midwife (there's like 4 mw's here it's hard to keep track lol), she's the one that was there for the care of my previous 3 and just last year, her and her other mw partner teamed up with the homebirth mw, but technically still work in their office with their dr. Anyway we were talking and she gave me ideas and stuff to do and take to turn her and then she wants to see me today to try to do her aversion since the baby just turned she thinks she might be able to get her to flip back.
So that turned out longwinded lol, but I could sure use some baby flipping vibes! I really think she will flip back, but my concern is not to piss off the back up dr or mw and still be able to wait till next week to see if an aversion is nessessary.
Like I said on the BB, try the chiro. and enjoy the day on your ironing board watching some TV.

Welcome to your lodge! Definately try a chiro and check out spinningbabies if you haven't already. I'm hoping she will turn for you!
So I've been on my head like all night last night and all day. And the one mw wanted to see me today to get her look into it since baby was not breech last Friday. Well she's feeling around and says, I feel stupid because I swear she does not feel breech at all, but maybe I'm wrong. So we go down to the office for a quick u/s..... she's head down!!!! So no aversion tomorrow!! Although the back up dr was cool and told the hb mw that he would definitely deliver a breech baby since this was my 4th. So this day has turned into a great day!!!
What great news-- I'm glad baby girl flipped for you...and you could avoid the version. And woot for having a doc who will catch breech. I always said that if I was term with a breech baby that I'd be driving myself to the Farm in TN....as it is hard to find folks who'll catch breech these days (but hopefully I'd be able to find someone....as this is my 4th, too.)
