37 weeks, yes, 3 weeks left. Or, maybe 2. Today, Scott and I went to see Dr. Sodoma on our second weekly visit to see if the baby is ready to go...and it's not. I'm not dilated, I'm not effaced, in fact, I'm breech. I'm not breech, but the baby is sitting on my bladder and cervix with its rump. Dr. Sodoma was none too pleased with the "violent" turn the baby took at some point in my uterus. Apparently, it likes Hotel Scheider too much to want to come out, so it flipped and basically gave us a big protest. Stubborn like their Mother. So, where do we go from here? Well, next week, we have to see if the baby turns itself around and I have to keep a close monitor on how much the baby moves. Seeing as though the Dr. states that it takes a pretty significant amount of energy to move a full 180, she's anticipating that I'll have to be admitted sometime after the 4th (probably on the 5th) have some maneuvers done under sedation to get my muscles to relax and if she can't turn the baby or it goes into distress - out it comes at 39 weeks via Caesarian. I guess we will wait until next week to see what happens. My thought is that the baby just likes the sound of Mom's heartbeat.
So, I owe you an OWT - this one has to do with the shower as well. Since I've had both my baby showers, the book states that if you get more Green clothing, it's a BOY and if you get more Yellow clothing, it's a GIRL. I got far more green items (probably since there aren't a whole lot of yellow animals besides ducks - I will give this one to the BOY.
Girl - 18
Boy - 17
