This will be the last time I get to post before the arrival of our baby girl! I felt pretty sick throughout the first trimester, but have felt pretty good otherwise besides the usually aches and pains associated with pregnancy. She was even head down and ready to go until sometime during the 36th week, when she decided to flip around and be breech! I have tried all kinds of exercises and even acupuncture to see if she will flip back around but so far no luck. I will go in to the doctor on Tuesday for my regular appointment, and then the plan is to either do a c-section on Wednesday or to induce if she happens to be head down. I am holding out hope that she will flip around because I know what to expect from a natural delivery but I also keep telling myself that maybe a c-section is going to be the best way for her to get here safely. I admit that I a freaking out a little bit but I am trying to be calm and accept things as they are. Dave is in Las Vegas for a Calix Conference until Tuesday so that has been a source of stress too. I know there are plenty of people that would help me if I go into labor while he is gone, but of course none of them would be the same as having Dave there. Stay tuned for how it all turns out! We will meet her either way on Wednesday!
