Had my 36 week check up and BPP today and received some excellent news, little man has finally moved out of breach and is head down!!! I am so ecstatic!! I was amazed when the tech told me.
The only indication I had was some pains/discomfort about two this morning, but I thought it was just a more painful version of his usual stretching. His head is now down and in position, and his foot has officially taken up the spot that his head previously occupied...the exact same spot which is sort of weird.
Baby is still measuring two weeks ahead, while my stomach still measures right on target. My cervix is still thinning as well, which they say is from my constant BH. The doctor tells me he is not letting me go past 39 weeks, which would be the 25th...but he doesn't think I will make it that long.
Considering I have had the mindset for the past week that this kid was content to stay where he was and I was going to have to have a c section...I feel like a drastic weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Add to that that LO could quite possibly be here 'anytime' (in the doctor's words)....ELATED!!
Got home from the appointment and the first thing my husband asks is "Does that mean we can have sex now?" hahaha...we have had to sustain the last couple of weeks because of the condition of my cervix and the baby's position. I hadn't even thought to ask the doctor about that, and it feels odd to me to call up to the office to ask....awkward.
On the other hand, now that I have been given the okay for delivery...sort of tempting!!
Hope everyone is doing well in their neck of the woods
Also wondering- is it true that squatting will help engage the baby and keep him in place? I am so horribly paranoid that he will decide he was more comfortable breach and flip back around, so I want to do everything possible to encourage to stay head down!
