Brandy - how's that belly holding up? I hope that babe is staying put for a little while yet!
It's so surreal to think that we *could* have babies now. And they'd likely be fine. I want them to stay put and cooking for a little bit yet, but it's still a crazy thing.
My babe is still flip flopping around in there, prefering to stay mostly transverse. Ugh. He gets daily chats about how it's just no possible to be born that way, but so far, he doesn't seem to get it. He's breech this morning though, which is, at least, birthable. I'm trying to figure out a way to keep everyone off my back and from freaking out about position and yet still find out if the high risk ob here attends breech births. I've vaginally birthed a large-ish baby (9lbs2oz), and do think I could handle a breech birth. Hopefully it won't be an issue, but it would be nice to know if it was/is a possibility just to have on eless thing to worry about.
So far though, I have NEVER been palpated. Never. Not a single time. Is this normal with ob care?! There aren't any midwives here (boo hoo!), but with dd, my midwife palpated at every visit from fairly early on. I just think it's a little nuts, especially where I declined the anatomy scan. Don't they think position is something they mimght want to know?! At this point, I'm not about to bring it up, because I know people will freak out and we are definitely coming to crunch time in terms of getting the kid oriented properly. I figure, as long as he's not transverse, I can just show up pushing and maybe no one will figure it out until the bum crowns? I seriously can't imagine that someone would shove the kid back in only to yank him out via c/s at that point?
I've been doing spinning babies, and let me tell you, hanging upside down when you have a sinus infection is seriously unpleasant! DD and I have been sick for two and a half weeks now. It's brutal. Hoping it passes SOON!
I cleaned the fridge today. Like, pulled everything out and dumped a bunch of stuff and washed all the shelves and the walls, etc. etc. It was all very satisfying, and very out of character. Normally I will wipe down a shelf if it's looking particularly grotty, but that's about it. It's amazing the dirt and scum you can find in your "clean" house, isn't it!?
