I have my 37 week appointment tomorrow. My dr. seemed sure and nonchalant that the baby is head down at previous appointments. My last birth was unfortunately an unplanned c-section as we discovered babe was transverse (after my waters broke at 36+3). So I am uneasy being this far along now and not having absolute knowledge of the baby's position this time. And by absolute, meaning see it with my own eyes. I've checked out the spinning babies workbook and just can't tell externally what's what.
Anyway, does it seem overkill to request an ultrasound at 37 weeks? It's really only for my peace of mind -- because if the position isn't right, at least I can still do something about it at this point. I don't want to seem paranoid or whatever, but pushing aside my uncertainty last time is one of my bigger regrets of that pregnancy (not that I'd have known that I'd be going into premature labor).
