If you had spoken to me as I approached 37 weeks, you probably would have heard that I was counting down to this milestone. You see, 37 weeks is the official green light in pregnancy that proclaims, "YOU'RE FULL TERM, YOU MAY NOW PASS GO!" I must admit, I was really excited about this week and was strongly encouraging Baby Love that it was A-OKAY to make her appearance sooner than later, just because she could!
As I sat in the doctor's office yesterday afternoon, my entire perspective quickly changed. I found out that despite being head down just a couple of weeks ago, Baby Love is now transverse. For those of you who have no clue what that is...she's lying sideways in my belly. This position = no bueno for vaginal delivery [insert sad face].
So with this unexpected news, I am now very glad that I have 3 whole weeks to D-day so that she can get in the right position. While the likelihood of this happening diminishes with each passing day, one thing I have on my side is the amount of amniotic fluid she's in. There seems to be lots of it, which means baby girl is able to live it up a little more than the average Joe.
This mama over here has already started to seek out what can be done to get her movin'. I started doing some of the very awkward positions and will be making an appointment with a chiropractor very soon in hopes that he can work his magic. I think these things mixed with prayer is a good combination for success! I am starting to realize that whatever is best for baby will ultimately happen and all will be well in the end!
I would greatly appreciate your prayers in the next few weeks as we near the end of my pregnancy...thanks friends!
