Obviously he cannot come out this way so we're looking at three possibilities right now:
- ECV - this is where the doctor tries to turn the baby with this hands. It involves a little medication to relax the uterus and fetal monitoring to make sure baby tolerates it well.
- Wait it out and see if he flips on his own, if he doesn't and I go into labor, well then we're pretty much just left with the C-section option
D and I spent a little time just sitting in the parking lot after the appointment. I think we were both a little dazed and caught off guard. I may have shed a tear or two but D has always been amazing when it comes to talking me through stressful situations. He said all the right things and helped me remember that whatever the decision, it will be His plan, not ours. Have I mentioned how blessed I am to have such a wonderful husband?!
After much thought and a good night's rest ("good?!"...okay, that's a stretch) I've decided I'm going to give the ECV a shot in hopes to avoid the C-section. If it works, fantastic! If it doesn't, then C-section it is. Or perhaps Graham will just surprise us all with his own plans.
