I'm tired now but know there are people checking this blog for news...so here it is.
The external cephalic version (ecv) was pretty painful but, ultimately, a success.
There was no c-section but also no induction. I am absolutely fine with that. I feel that with pressure from the head on my cervix now that I have a better chance of spontaneous labour and delivery.
The only doctor in our small city to be willing to try an ecv did it successfully today. He is also one of only two doctors willing to do a trial of labour of a breech baby. He is not on call Thursday or Friday but he is willing to come in to do another ecv or assist my regular doctor in a breech birth if the baby flips again. I'm grateful. The pressure to have this baby today (Wednesday) or wait till Saturday (as if I could if s/he decided it was time) is off.
I have peace with the choices we've made and was so grateful to be able to go to prayer meeting tonight. What a gift.
I'm hoping for spontaneous labour to begin in the next couple of days. I'm thankful for how well today went in hospital. I'm excited to meet our little baby and hear newborn cries. I'm remembering the big sister s/he will never get to hug on this earth and hoping she is smiling down on us.
What a big glowing smile she had.
