Dispatches from Babyville

Holy crap, we have a baby!

Still breech March 25, 2009

Filed under: prenatal appointments — My Athletic Life @ 12:37 pm

Well, River is still a little confused about which direction is supposed to be up. But she can’t help it, since she’s just a baby and she’s just doing her best. We still have a while to unconfuse her, so I’m spending quality time with my saint of a chiropractor almost every day. If she hasn’t turned by next week, we’ll look at having a doc try to manually turn her the week after that. There’s a good chance that would involve an epidural and an immediate induction if they are successful in getting her to turn, so it would still mean missing out on the natural birth we’ve been planning for. For now, we’re just going to keep doing what we can to get her to turn on her own.

    Oh leetle baby! If you turn around that equals a healthier birth which equals you can go home sooner and see KITTIES!!! Think about it.

    Turn, Baby, turn!

    Why do they have to do the epidural and induction right away? I hadn’t heard that part. Work your magic Mr/Ms Chiropractor!

    At 31 weeks, our little one is head down and sideways (facing left) right now (we just had our appointment and our first birth class today!). I hope he/she stays that way.
