OT: 38 wk appt - he turned breech :( Update at #10

Argh, just got back from my appointment. The stinker turned and is now breech. I went in for my NST. When the nurse hooked me up, we couldn't find his heartbeat on the usual side, and found it completely elsewhere. Both she and I were like, oh no, he better not be breech. So, I do the NST for a while, my OB comes in and says it looked good. Then, we settled on an induction date, 4/21, and I was pretty excited, since that's only 1 day before the EDD and my OB will be there that day. Then, though, because of what happened with the NST hookup, my OB wanted to do an u/s to see his position. He was breech, so she gave me some exercises to do and asked me to come back on Fri. If he's still breech, she'll schedule a C-section for next week. She said that if, on the day of the C-section, he's flipped, they would induce immediately instead of doing the C. Ugh ugh ugh. I really don't want the C-section if possible, so please send this LO some "flip into position asap" vibes, please Smile

Oh, no! Little stinker indeed! Flip back little, baby! I think there is a website called spinning babies (or something similar) it gives tips for getting the baby to flip too. might be worth a look? If not, I had two c/s and they're not so bad, if it comes to that.

Either way the 21st sounds like a great day for a Birthday! How exciting to have an exact date to look forward to. Smile

Oh no! The second baby is so much easier to deliver than the first. Crossing my fingers for you.

Got back from my appt - he's still breech, bleh. C-section scheduled for next Wed 4/18, at 12:30p. I'll keep doing the exercises until then, so there's still a chance that instead of doing the surgery at that time, they'll induce instead.

Thanks all for your wishes!

Amber: I've been doing some of the spinning babies exercises, and now I'll keep doing them, lol. It's good to hear that you had no probs with your 2 c/s. I know it's fine, I just had an emotional reaction to the idea of doing it, because I didn't want to and I didn't at all expect it, you know? I'm feeling much better about it now. Whatever gets him in my arms safely!

Dawn: I'm feeling ... wiped out completely. There's no point pretending otherwise. Uncomfortable most of the time, and very uncomfortable at night. This pg is soooo different than Aasha's. Now I truly understand what people mean when they said they are done and the "get the baby out" feelings, lol! With Aasha, I felt so good, I was actually a little sad when her arrival rolled around, because I knew my special time with her was going to be over. But, I'm healthy and baby is healthy, so that's all that matters.
