I had an appointment yesterday with my midwife and am happy to report that all is well! We heard a nice strong heartbeat and everything looks normal . . . well, except for his position: he's transverse. This means instead of being head down (as he used to be) he is now lying sideways across my belly. The good news is that he apparently has plenty of room to move around in there and he is likely to go back to being head down by the time he's ready to greet the world. However, if he hasn't moved by 36 weeks then things get a little scary. I will be referred to see a consultant who will attempt to turn him the right way around. If that doesn't work I will be scheduled for a C-section. Having a C-section is basically my biggest fear when I think about giving birth (second to the baby or me being not well, of course).
So please pray or send the baby some spinning vibes or anything else you think might work to get this little guy in the right position! I'll be doing my part by checking out this website that a friend recommended about how to "spin your baby" into position. It supposedly works wonders!
