And so begins the 9th month...


Our last Dr. appointment (Friday) showed us that Paisley would rather be standing up than resting on her head... She's in breech position and that doesn't make the doc real comfortable. (What about me?!)

The crazy news is that if she hasn't flipped by this Friday, they want us to seriously consider having her manually turned the week after Christmas. (Doctor manipulation of my baby belly!) When - if! - she turns after all that pushing, pulling, and kneading of her comfort zone, they'll want to induce me to begin labor before she changes her mind. If all of this happens...we'll have our little girl in 2 weeks rather than 4!

Anyway, it suddenly feels like lots to get ready for! But on the other hand, I've heard story after story of babies flipping on their own right when they're supposed to! So we'll see how it goes. If she stays breech and we wait for her to flip but she doesn't, then she'll soon be too big to flip and it'll mean a c-section, which I'd really rather avoid.

So it's not all that big of a deal, and God's will will be done, but if you think about it, could you send up a prayer that Paisley turns on her own so I can go into labor naturally and at the proper time? Thank you!

I'm praying for you, Cass! I was breech (or maybe sideways?) right before I was born, and I turned after my dad prayed over me. :) Either way, I know the Lord has you both in His hands. Love ya!

PS at least you look positively adorable. :)

Definitely praying for your peace of mind, Cass. And for Paisley to be in the position God wants her in!! It's possible she will still turn in the next few weeks....but you're right, God's will be done! Love you dear! And that sweet baby of yours I haven't met yet!

Love ya and can't wait to hear what God does!!

Have you looked up on the net the oddly uncomfortable exercises available to try to help baby dears into better position for natural birth? I haven't but I'm sure there are some out there. Who knows maybe you can manipulate that dearest on your own...

I am praying she will see the need to do a headstand soon. And that whatever the case, you and Paisley will be well and safe, in good hands, and that everything will go just fine.

I love your picture~ mighty cuteness going on there. I love you.
