Well, turns out baby is quite comfortable breech and would really appreciate it if everyone would just leave him alone.
The Dr. gave it 4 valiant efforts and actually got him half way around...but Mr. baby held firm, and then quickly went back into his favorite position.
It is so bizarre. You guard your belly for 8 months from even the slightest bump...and then suddenly two full grown men are shoving their hands and fists as deep into your tummy and they can. Dave said he could see the full outline of the baby through my stomach. Apparently baby has been working out and is looking quite toned!
So the C-section is tentatively scheduled for July 25th.
I think Dave was feeling since this was (potentially) his only chance to spend time in a labor & delivery room - he really had to make the most of it. I don't think he sat down once the 4 hours we were there. Instead he:
*Rigged up the TV so it played his "labor" play list via his ipod
*Opened every drawer and cabinet in the place - and went through the contents of each one. He kept saying "Do you think we can take this home?"
*Used the little magic wand thing that directs the massive "birthing" lights. When I came out of the bathroom, they were shinning on me. When I got back in bed, they were shinning on me. You see the theme.
*Perused the menu and asked "should we order some food?"
*The nurse made the mistake of bringing the ultrasound machine into the room, and then left it there with us. Dave busted out the ultra sound gel and checked out with the machine the inside of his finger, arm, and was nubbins away from lathering up his belly when the nurse came back.
*He also mentioned "Do you think I should jump in the Jacuzzi tub?"
All in all I'm glad the attempted "turn" is over - and I look forward to meeting baby in 2 short weeks.
