Last week I went to see my midwife for my 34-week appointment, and while I was there I got to have an ultrasound to see the baby. During the ultrasound I got some news I really didn’t want to hear…Peanut #2 is breech. I was really hoping this wouldn’t happen again because I want to do whatever I can to avoid having to have another c-section. The good news is that we have a lot more time than we did when I was pregnant with Elyse.
I have met with a chiropractor once and am going again later today. There is an adjustment they do that some say opens up the pelvis and gives baby more room to move. I may also try to go to my acupuncturist. Yesterday I spoke with my midwife and told her that if the baby is still breech next week when I go for my 36-week appointment I want to give the external version another shot. (We tried it with Elyse, but since I was less than a week from my due date there was pretty much no room for her to move.)
Please keep your fingers crossed for us over the next few weeks…I really do not want to undergo another c-section and all the hospital time and recovery that is involved with it. I can’t imagine staying in the hospital so long while Elyse is at home, and I know I’ll be anxious to bring the new baby home to start our new life together.
The good thing that came from the ultrasound was this 3D picture of his/her cute little face…look at those chubby cheeks!
