Hi Ladies,
I went to my OB check yesterday and the baby is transverse (my DD is Wed). I did spinning babies exercises last night and am hoping for the best. I'm heading in to the hospital now for a version and then probably an induction. I've got extra fluid so the baby has too much room to move around, but hopefully they will have room to turn her.
This is my 4th birth - was hoping for my first home birth but at this point just trying to avoid a section.
Please send any prayers, baby/labor vibes our way today!
Thanks!

Update with quick birth story - Baby was head down when we arrived at the hospital but still not engaged. Too much fluid to just break my water to start induction so started some pit. Got going, turned it off, AROM, labored for 4 hours with good contractions. Labor stalled out for 3 hours, restarted pit briefly took me into transition and pushing. Squatted out a 9lb 1oz baby girl at 10:30 last night. In the end it was a great birth exactly how it needed to happen. My home birth team labored with me all day in the hospital, my OB's were fabulous and very non-intervention ( I asked for the 2nd round of pit because I was getting very tired and knew we had to get moving or I would wear out). Baby went straight to my chest and stayed there for almost an hour before anyone else touched her. My 9yo son got to come in and cut the cord. We are now home and getting settled in - had a calm, quiet day in the hospital bonding with the baby - she never left my sight. Couldn't have asked for a better hospital birth!

Wow, what an amazing hospital birth story. So happy for you, and happy to know there's at least one doctor in one hospital with a human idea of the birth process. Welcome to your baby girl!
