Okay, I might be freaking out just a little. Really, I know everything is going to be fine one way or another, and I know that's why they do it in a hospital, but my version is scheduled for this afternoon. Right now, I'm torn between terrified that the version will work, and I'll have to go through actual labor with no set date, and beyond terrified of having to have a c-section. I have no idea which way it is going to go.

The upside is that I actually have everything ready to go. All bags are packed and in my car, and I've made plans for my girls, should anything NEED to happen today. So, I figure, if nothing else, that is my assurance that I will be leaving the hospital today because I'm NEVER ready ahead of time. So, if any of you can spare a thought or prayer for my this afternoon, that would be great!

Now, I need to focus on getting work done, in case I'm not back after today!!

Just copied this from my Peep Show thread:

Arrived for my version, and they got me all registered, which means there shouldn't be anything left when I actually have to go in.
They monitored baby for a while and took my blood pressure (145/96). That's not normal for me at all! I told the nurse that I have had trouble with automatic cuffs before, as did my sister, and I was super nervous about the version so she said we'd take it again a little later.
The doctor came in about 45 minutes later or so and did the ultrasound. He kept looking and looking, which was making me even more nervous. Then he asked if I had been checked lately. I told him it was 2-3 weeks ago. He continued with the ultrasound, and I was thinking something must not be right. Then he asked if I minded a cervical check. At this point, there's not much I mind.
The result? Baby is head down, and we never even had to do the version!!! I said that they had told me he was good, and he said he used his telepathic powers to get it to move. Anyhow, I'm 1 cm dilated and 50% effaced, which pretty much means nothing to me. He said he'll plan on seeing me back there in the next week, or sooner, and I told him I'm hoping for later.
The nurse took my blood pressure automatically right before they let me go, and it was 148/103. I knew there was no way that was right so I asked her to take it manually. She took it twice, and it was the same both times - 136/82. A little high for the top number so I'm supposed to keep an eye out for any of the telltale symptoms of hypertension, but the bottom number was pretty normal for me. She said she's never seen that happen before.
I am so very relieved that I didn't have to go through the actual version, and everything looks good! I think the nurse was just as excited as I was!!

So happy to hear that!!! Didn't something similar happen with your last daughter as well? Sounds like you have some cooperative babies . Hope your BP stays down and baby boy stays put until the big day!
