Tomorrow afternoon... ScienceGeekMomma TTC since Aug 2013; 1 child; New Brunswick 104 posts

My baby girl will be born! At my 38 week appointment, the baby had flipped around and was breech. I kept hoping all week that she would flip back around, but after an ultrasound today, the doctor said that she was still heads-up and my pelvis was empty. He said that everything looked great and scheduled me for a c-section tomorrow afternoon. This is my first, and I was really hoping for the whole "experience" but I guess it's much safer to schedule a section rather than take the chance that I go into labor while she's breech and end up have an emergency section. DF and I were quick speechless - we knew that there was a good chance he'd schedule us for a section, but had no idea it would be booked so quickly! I'm both nervous and excited. Still have to finish getting my hospital and diaper bags ready... keep baby Finley and I in your prayers tonight!

Thanks, momma! I'm just so excited to finally meet her. At the same time, I've had such a wonderful pregnancy that I'm going to miss feeling her moving around. I thought I was going to have at least a few more days being pregnant, but I suppose that there'd be no guarantee I wouldn't go into labor soon anyway. I have a fantastic doctor and trust that he knows what's best for baby and I. :)

From what I understand, once they have me prepped, they will try to manually flip her from the outside. Even if they are successful, they would induce me immediately so that she wouldn't have time to flip heads-up again. Either way, I'm "officially" going to be a mommy tomorrow!

Hopefully they are able to flip and you can have the vaginal birth you want! It's also much safer for you and baby. Either way, good luck, and congrats in advance!!

Congrats on getting to meet your little one tomorrow! Have you tried Spinningbabies.com? I had a little guy that was turned around very quickly after trying some of their techniques, it's worth a try!!!

Gosh, I haven't even though of looking for techniques to flip her as I didn't think it could be done so quickly without a doctor/midwife to assist. I will definitely look through that site and see if anything can help. Thanks!

That site is awesome! DS wasn't breech, that's a little harder to turn. But he was sunny side up, which could cause worse labor for me and cause injuries to him on the way out. At 34w he was like that. 36 week he flipped the right way from me doing stuff on this site, I like to think :P
