The bad news is... the baby is now breech. Ugh. Last week the doctor said he felt his head was down. But I do have a lot more amniotic fluid that normal, so he may just like to swim around in there. I'm praying that he turns again before next Wednesday. I have an "external version" scheduled for 7:00 am next Wednesday at Iowa Methodist Hospital. The doc will come in and try and turn the baby externally, which I've heard is extremely painful. The bummer too is that it only works in 50% of attempts and even if it does work, the baby can flip again before labor. But the doctor thinks it's worth a try to avoid a C-section. It can also put me into labor whether or not the baby turns, so they'll keep me in the hospital for a few hours afterwards to monitor me and the baby.
So, please pray that this baby turns on his own. I'm really nervous right now about turning him manually. And if you have any tips for helping him turn, let me know! I know one of my friends mentioned putting headphones on the lower part of her tummy and playing music and her baby actually flipped! Anything's worth a try!
