    @Shalexis OMG!! I'm glad your in your house! I listen to a podcast called "The Birth Story", they have a ton of different birth stories on there, including ECV's and c-sections. Maybe give them a listen? It might help your nerves! (Or it might not!)

    I had my 36 week appointment yesterday!

    Baby is confirmed breech, and also looking large (he was measuring about 7 lbs yesterday, and they put on anywhere between 4-8 oz a week toward the end on average, the tech said probably more if they're big!). Not as big as my daughter was measuring at that point, but I'm easily looking at a 9 lb baby if I go to term, and he could be just as big as her...

    I'm leaning more and more toward just scheduling a C-section. My doctor did say I could be a good candidate for an ECV because I've had a baby before, and my fluid levels are good, but she also said that he's lowish, which makes it harder. UGH I don't know. I feel like I should probably attempt an ECV, but I'm worried about it being painful and going through all of that only for it to not work and have to have a C-section anyway. Even if it does work, then I'm looking at another vaginal delivery, which could still end in a C-section. Although if it did work, in theory, my second delivery should be a lot easier than my first. But I just don't know how likely I feel like it is to work, and I would really hate to make the recovery from a C-section any harder by having to recover from that as well. Just scheduling a C-section kind of feels like a cop out when I have other options I guess. And because the recovery will likely be harder than it would from a vaginal delivery, so if I 100% don't HAVE to have one then I should try not to?

    Ugh. I've been going in circles with this since yesterday. My husband isn't much help, because it's understandably my decision ultimately. We scheduled an appointment for next Thursday, and she said I need to have decided by then so we can get something scheduled either way. Whatever we schedule will likely be two weeks from tomorrow, which is SO SOON!

    The good news is, we finally got EVERYTHING out of storage, so we now officially have all the nursery furniture assembled, and are working on getting everything unpacked and cleaned up before baby gets here. Also I got a 3d ultrasound picture yesterday, and he actually looks like a cute baby (you know what I mean. Some of those ultrasounds pictures are CREEPY).

    @shalexis You have a great photo! Everyone I've ever seen is so weird looking. That's a tough decision. I would probably do the ECV, just so I felt better, but whatever is best for you go for it!

    I'm 32 weeks now. I had an ultrasound today and baby is head down. She's measuring great, so no complicated due to our valementous umbilical cord. My blood pressure is good, so no worries about preeclampsia yet.

    However, I'm starting to feel miserable. I can't sleep, because she is moving constantly and I have to pee every hour. I have pregnancy carpel tunnel. I'm swollen due to the heat. I'm ready for this pregnancy to be over, but then I feel guilty for wishing she comes early!!

    Any others in the same boat?

    Hmmm this thread is kind of dead lately! Hoping everything is going well for all of you!

    I am schedule for an ECV and then either induction or C-section on Thursday! As in THREE DAYS FROM NOW. Having an actual date to anticipate is stressing me out way worse than I thought it would!

    @morgantaylore
    I'm definitely ready to be done! This baby is technically coming a week earlier than my daughter did, but 39 weeks according to what my doctor changed my due date to, and still 38.5 ish weeks according to what it was originally, so I don't feel too bad. I had a false labor scare at 37 weeks and felt a tiny bit bad that I hoped it ended up being real... But anyway, don't feel too bad. The end of pregnancy is hard, and I feel like the heat of summer makes it worse! But you're getting so close, it'll be your due date in no time!
