37 weeks with baby #2

Here I am almost at the finish line of a pregnancy that felt lighting fast
I'm ready to meet this rambunctious girl and see if her constant busyness in utero reflects her personality in the outside world

who will she look like?

ANXIOUS is the word I would use to describe how I've been feeling

Last week we found out she was in the posterior position, which was what lead to a csection with Sienna. I had a major breakdown that night, and lost all hope for the vbac I want so badly. Its pretty likely that I'll wind up with another csection and going through hours of labor just to wind up in that OR again will be devastating to me mentally and physically but I think I owe it to myself and to baby to atleast try. Miracles do happen right? tiny chance she may still turn from her ever so comfy and wrong for birth position.


  1. My baby was also in the posterior position and I didn't know until I as in labor and my contractions were 1 minute apart yet I was only 2 cm dilated (the contractions were trying to flip the baby). My midwife sent me home and told me to do the Miles Circuit ( a few times but since I was in mid labor it was too painful. Baby girl ended up flipping on her own though. The circuit might work for you and shouldn't hurt since you aren't in labor. It's worth a try! Don't lose hope - and either way you will end up with a beautiful baby :)

  2. wow!! that gives me hope, thanks SO much for sharing. I will definitely be checking that out!

  3. I had a friend in your same position at 39 weeks. She had acupuncture and that helped to turn her little girl. Might give it a try! Can't wait to meet my little girl due mid September. Getting jealous of everyone due in July and August :)

  4. Praying for you and your little cherub my friend - hoping she turns x


Your sweet words always make my day! :) Thank you.
