37 weeks

I just had my 37-week OB appointment and...

baby is head down
and I'm dilated 1 cm.

Woohoo!!! There's no guarantee she won't flip back (or back and forth) again, but I was able to have a good conversation with the doctor and she said even if a version (ECV) is necessary, she wouldn't do it until 39 weeks. She totally "gets" my not wanting to be induced, and I am feeling more confident.

TOTAL answered prayer and I just cannot wait to go into labor and have this sweet baby!!!!

Hooray! That's great! I'm sure it is such a relief!!

Baby girl - behave for your mommy & daddy!

And as for your question..I doubt I'll try the ECV again. She really didn't budge at all, and she quite fills up her space...I'm just continuing the inversion exercises and hoping she does it on her own. And if not, we get to meet her on 10/9!

Good luck with the next 3 weeks!

Thanks for all your sweet comments! Yes it is much more comfortable with her head-down. My ribs certainly appreciate it!
