36 weeks and her birthday!

*Full term on Friday!!

*She may never come out, LOL.

*Still breech. (butt first)

Scheduled a c-section for: Sept 10th

*If she flips before then my cerclage will be removed or if I go into labor before then they will take her out.

*Done with all progesterone! Yay!

*Nausea returned like the first trimester.

*She is about 6lb 4oz (+/- 1 lb). It's not as accurate this far along.

*Side Note*
I have gotten many emails and messages about baby turning websites and techniques. A high risk Dr are the ones who perform the aversion turning techniques and my Dr is not a fan of them. She has plenty of fluid so there is no reason she shouldn't turn so I trust there is a reason she is breach (short cord, placenta, ect). External turning can be more dangerous than a c-section for the babies. I trust my Dr and I am choosing to go with his advice. It is what it is. She will come out the way she was intended to.

So glad she is doing well! And a c-section isn't so bad I promise I have had 2 now. I had to have one with my first he was footling breech (feet first) so then second baby automatically csection and it didn't bother me a bit. If you have any questions for a mom who has been there please feel free to ask :)

Does the nausea mean you can't enjoy chocolate milk? Damn! I am excited that you have a date, now let's see if she waits that long. :)

My Tommy will be 4 on 9/10! He was a c-section, transverse for 2 weeks before we scheduled for 9/11, but I went into labor and they did the section shortly after midnight on the 10th. So happy you have made it to this point!'

I have been following your blog for a long time now, but I don't think I've ever commented :) I had to comment when I saw your c-section date...I'm also having a c-section on September 10th, bringing Baby #3 into this world(also c-section #3). I'll be praying that everything goes smoothly for you :)
