Spinning a baby

Thank you all for your many comments and stories regarding C- sections. I've got to be honest, some of y'all scared me a little bit! haha! I had previously heard that if you had a really rough recovery with a 1st delivery, that a C-section is a piece of cake in comparison. After reading all of those comments, I'm not sure that will be the case! With Keating I had a lovely 3rd degree episiotomy, so it was a verrrry long recovery. I guess it comes down to the preference of what area you would rather all stitched up? At this point, I am fine with whatever method I have to go through... really what choice do I have? As long as he is delivered safely, that is what matters.

I know there is still time for him to flip around, so I'm just waiting to see what happens. I have been doing a few of the exercises from spinningbabies.com to see if will help A. to turn. He has been breech close to half of my pregnancy, so we will see if the exercises work. I do know one thing, lying upside down on an ironing board nearly 36 weeks pregnant is not a flattering position. I thought of posting my picture just for laughs, but it was too bad to even keep it in my phone! Keating on the other hand thought the he would give it a try. He looks much cuter than I do doing it anyhow. (Yes, I need a new ironing board cover)
To explain the process to anyone who may be confused... the point of the exercise is to lay inverted so that the muscles and uterus have a chance to stretch out and hang. Hanging uterus sounds sexy right?? You can only do this portion or you can add to it with a hot/ cold combination. With the hot/ cold process you place something cold behind where the baby's head is, and something warm into the direction you want for them to move to. Archer doesn't react to this part at all, so I'm not sure that it is working.
Keating doesn't really understand why I am lying there, but he takes it as a time to use me as a jungle gym and climb over and under me. The other day during the process he managed to spill a red popsicle all over the floor. (Yes, I was the idiot that gave my two year old a red popsicle in the house) After I was able to get my very pregnant self down to clean it up, and get back to a flattering inclined position, I was sprayed in the face with the carpet cleaner. There is never a dull moment in my house. Never.
I go back to the Dr. next week and I will see what the verdict is. Either way, we will need to know something somewhat soon since I went into labor with Keating 2 weeks early. I like having a plan of action in place, who doesn't.
Hopefully the rain we are getting today will clear out all of the pollen that is torturing so many of us! Have a great weekend!
