I wanted to come and thank you all for being so helpful to me. I did end up having my baby girl Megan via c-section on October 1st. After talking with my doctor he thought that I might only have half of my uterus and that is why she wasn't moving into the head down position. We both discussed doing a version but he said he did not think it was going to work since there was literally no room. The c-section recovery has been great I was up and moving around the next day because I was bed ridden for 24hrs while I was on mag sulfate because I had developed pre-e. I did end up being put completely under because after 2 failed attempts with a spinal I was only about 75% numb and I ended up freaking out I guess(of course I don't remember a lot of it I just got the story after the fact). My doctor did discuss with me which was kind of a highlight for me that if with my next pregnancy my baby is head down he is all for a VBAC and I will definitely be doing NCB. Sorry this was kind of rambly, but I just wanted to come back and thank everyone for informing me of natural childbirth techniques and such and I hope to be able to put them to use next time.

She's beautiful! I hope you don't feel like you failed at anything b/c you had to have the c-section. You did try your best and in the end you had to choose what was safer for you and baby girl! Good luck on a great vbac next time if that's what you hope for.
