.....and baby is no longer breech! Yeah!!!!!!!! I am so excited.....and breathing easier also! Yesterday a close friend came over and sat with me to clear me and we called on all the angels and asked the baby to make it's way when he/she was ready. I felt the flip in the middle of the night!<br><br>
I am still measuring small, but the MW isn't too concerned. She just continues to say that there is no need to have a 8-10lb baby and that 6 will be just fine for me. I'm all about that! BP was 120/80 (with me being a little anxious) and hopefuly the GBS test comes back negative.<br><br>
I am scheduled for another u/s on the 10th just to check size again. She did a quick u/s today to confirm position and there was a great big noggin right in my pelvis. I am so thrilled. She joked that I traded heart burn for pelvic pressure, and while she's right, at least feeling like I have a bowling ball between my legs is serving some purpose towards birthing. The heartburn and constant feeling of being crushed was just annoying. Pressure, I can handle.<br><br>
I am so thankful for this opportunity to have a natural delivery.....whenever baby is ready <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
Just wanted to share. Hope everyone else is feeling well and hanging in there as we get close to our EDDs!

Congratulations!! (We are due date twinkies!) My little one keeps moving all over the place from day to day. Some days head down, some days transverse. He/she was breech last week.

I remember the feeling of relief the first appt. that my baby was head down. Like a weight lifted off my shoulders.<br><br>
You sound like you're in such a good headspace - we're all envious, you know!<br><br>

MW is "worried" about size because I'm measuring small. This, combined with the fact that I'm only 3lbs above pre-preg weight makes her feel that extra u/s's are justified to make sure everything is OK. In general, she's not stressed about it and says I will likely just have a small baby (dd was 7lbs and I gained 55lbs!). At the 33wk u/s baby measured 3lb13oz which was apparently the last once of the low end of normal. Everything else has consistently looked fine including previous size checks. I go for another u/s in one week and then if baby looks OK and is still head down they will let me go until I deliver.<br><br>
Dh jokes that with all my conscientious eating now I will grow a huge baby and shock everyone with a 10 pounder......I tell him that's not funny! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
