    *Sigh* Not much going on here...the weather got cold and rainy again suddenly (it was 80 degrees and sunny yesterday!).

    I'm just on the couch... trying to drink, drink, drink and think turning thoughts.

    I find it very frustrating to feel like there isn't much I can DO to make this kid turn. I mean...I am doing things. I had an ice pack at the top of my fundus earlier...but Moonshine seems pretty good at just scooting left or right to avoid it, rather than actually flipping. Stubborn little person! And I'm going to the chiro and doing acupuncture and moxibustion, inversions, etc... but it still just feels like there should be MORE that I can do!

    We bought out our registry at BRU the other day...we now have the changing station all set up- changing pad, diapers, wipes, etc. I finally got my hands on socks and hats for the wee one (hard to find white or at least not pink/blue!).

    Part of me is thinking that if we end up having to go through with the version next week, we'll end up meeting this little one ahead of schedule. It's just a gut feeling. On the one hand, since Joel has to go back to Angola on May 8, it wouldn't be bad to have an early baby...on the other hand, I just so, so, so would like to have a natural birth...

    I'm still really comfortable physically, and still really enjoying pregnancy...but I think just mentally I'm getting to the point of feeling very ready to meet this baby...

    Here's a pic of me at 36 weeks...

    You look fab! Have you check out any of the spinning babies stuff? It helps with getting the baby to turn. I just thought I would ask because you mentioned sitting on the couch and maybe you could be laying in a different postion.

    Thanks!

    I have looked at spinning babies. When I'm on the couch I try to lay on my left side, kneel on my knees or at least sit leaning towards my left. I'm trying to avoid spending too much time lounging/laying back...

    Wow---You look so comfortable still. My belly looks much bigger at 29 weeks. Are you tall? I've noticed taller women don't appear as big as shorter women due to having a longer torso.

    GL with baby turning. I've heard acupuncture and chiropractic treatments can also help turn a baby.

    hi Mara! Welcome to your lodge, I am sorry I am so late to post! Every time I get on to read it I get interrupted. I have been sending you head-down vibes since you first mentioned Moonshine was breech, but i will have to try harder
    Your intro was very interesting, to hear how you met and all of your plans for the future, too.
    I have heard of versions causing labor to begin, so you may be right about an early appearance. They don't even do versions at my hospital.
    Hopefully something else will help before that!
    I look forward to following your journey!
