All right, ladies. Shame on me, but here's my 36 week update

Kellen may still be breech I've been on all 4's or inverted or with a cold and hot pack on my ab... it seems like FOREVER). I've tried about everything in the spinning babies for over a week now, and it's impossible to tell what's going on with him. Kicks and punches feel the same, and all over. Hiccups are high and low. Bah!

My doc, upon the first external guess, said she'd guess he's still breech, but then she did a vag exam and said she'd bet money that he's flipped, so we don't know! I've had one Webster Technique appointment already, have one tonight, one Monday and we'll see from there.

Monday, I have a VERY quick u/s appointment with the OB just to see exactly how he's positioned. If he's still breech, later that week, we're scheduling a version. If this is the case, I'll also get in one more Webster Technique on Wednesday.

Weight is good. I had not looked at my weight in over a month (I NEVER look at her office) because I hit that same weight I was when I delivered with Kensley and I swore I'd NEVER be here again. Well, I bit the bullet and weighed myself yesterday and in all that time, I only gained a pound! So, while I'm still horrified by my weight, the good thing is it's well under control.

Baby is good. Measuring 2 weeks ahead, pretty consistently, and we have no concerns except the positioning.

So... official due date is Sept. 9, but we'll see what happens between now and then.

Hat's off to Vicki for my cute siggy, thank you!

You're 36 weeks already?!?! That can't be!!! I'm sorry he still seems to be breech. I hope he flips soon! There's still time, not much, but there is still some left! I'm so loving all the babies right now!

Great to have an update from you, Gwynne! I miss you around here.

I hope Kellen gets a spinnin' for you very soon, there is still time!

August is turning into a pretty exciting baby month around this PR and with you and Carrie both on deck, I'm betting we may see a couple more new little faces this month!

Good luck on getting him head down and KUP!

Not a bad appointment! There is definitely time for him to flip. I've heard of babies flipping during active labor.

Oh man! 36 weeks?! Wow! He will flip!!! Collin did in the 36th week!!

I hope he comes on the 6th, it's an awesome time in Sept, you have a perfect excuse for a big BBQ on labor day and it is Thomas' birthday!

You better come around more often! We miss you around here!
