November 17?!?

Well, it looks like we may have a birthday for Jack! I am now 36 weeks and 3 days - and Jack is big - and BREECH. I've tried yoga, acupuncture, moxibustion and chiropractic .. and he has not budged. It is not impossible that he might still turn - but it is unlikely. So at this point - this wanna be crunchy birth mama has scheduled a C-section for November 17. Most docs will no longer attempt breech deliveries, neither will my midwives, risks outweigh the benefits. As we've already dealt with enough risk in this pregnancy - we're going with the C-section. I'm disappointed - it's not the birth I would have chosen - but I am getting over it. I am very, very, very excited to meet Jack. It's a moment I've been waiting for my entire life. :-)

I am awful blogger!

I don't know why I can't seem to find a minute to update this blog! I am lame.

Things continue to go well. I had a shower a couple of weeks ago and will post pics soon - it was wonderful. I had another growth scan this morning - baby boy is estimated to be over 5 pounds, apparently has quite a big (but normal) head, and is STILL breech. Turn baby turn!!

I will post a better update soon .. but all remains well as we head toward the home stretch! Amazing. :-)
