The View From Down Here

They confirmed that Baby Girl is still breech at my 36 week appointment yesterday. That's not good. The soonest they could get me in to attempt an external version is next Thursday. Thankfully, the head OB at the practice I switched to halfway through my pregnancy is a local celebrity as far as spinning babies goes.

In the meantime, I'll step it up on the flipping techniques I've been doing every so often, including moving to the full inversion, which for me involves hooking my legs over the back of the couch and hanging upside down off the side. Too bad we cheaped out and bought an IKEA ironing board, I'm pretty sure it wouldn't support my weight.

I'm really stressing out about this, so please cross your fingers that she spins for us in the next few days! I really don't want to have a c-section. The OB I'm with is also a local celebrity for breech deliveries, so that option is also on the table.


  1. Fingers crossed.

  2. Fingers crossed. I had to get a c-section with my third because she decided to flip right before they broke my water, and they wouldn't even entertain the notion of a breech delivery, although I think I could have done it since she was a lot smaller than the other two, and they were easy deliveries. SO FINGERS CROSSED!!!!

  3. Perhaps my story will relief a tiny bit of stress. My second daughter was delivered breech. I can still see that little foot sticking out in my mind. My first wife was not nearly as fit as you. It all worked out fine no complications. This daughter is now a mom herself. Also, I will point out that this whole thing took place in an Air Force hospital. I think the whole delivery cost less than $15.00 back then. All the best.

  4. Spin baby spin!!

  5. That did make me feel better, thank you for sharing!
