This pregnancy has been a roller coaster. We've surely had more ups than downs, but nothing has remained static. When I went back to the doctor a week ago, the baby had turned again and was back in breech position. This was something I really thought we had left behind us, but here we were again dealing with the "what to do with a breech baby?" question. I had a follow-up appointment at the hospital this past Tuesday, still with a breech baby. We made and action plan and I (finally) left. As of yesterday (Friday) baby is back to starting position. I can now obsess about the possibility that Baby will turn yet again.
The current plan is that I will not be allowed to go over 40 weeks, which is November 9th according to my records (really November 10th if we want to get picky, but I don't think the doctors will grace me with one more day). I will be cut off at 40 weeks because of the gestational diabetes - which seems to have gotten much better recently. As long as baby is still head down then I will be induced on November 9th, if not I'll have to have a c-section. If I go into labor before 40 weeks (please, please, please) and the baby is head down - great! If the baby is again breech and the attending at the time is on board, we're going to try a natural birth. This baby is much smaller than Blaise at about 6.4lbs as opposed to over 9lbs, so the doctors feel there shouldn't be a problem getting out. Still hopin' to get this baby moving before 40 weeks and in the right position!
On a positive note, the baby looked healthy, which in the end is all that really matters.
