baby update 34 weeks

After seeing the Dr. today and hearing what seemed to be a much more normal heart beat I am super pleased. Although he did say that she appears to be transverse or sideways in the womb. http://www.spinningbabies.com/baby-positions/all-positions/sideways But he said we still have some time and we hope that in the next few weeks she turns head down. But other than that things look good and normal.

Hey Shell- Brooke was never head down. She was transverse for the majority of my pregnancy and then turned to the breach position towards the end. Now I went into labor at 35 weeks, but if I had made it to the 37 week mark and she had not turned on her own I was going to have an external cephalic version done, which is where they manually turn the baby. A friend of mine had it done and it was extremely painful and was not a success that lasted long enough for a natural birth. Anyway, just some food for thought. C-sections aren't that bad if you end up having to go that route. My only advice is don't do somersault underwater to turn the baby- that sent me into pre-term labor!
