34 weeks and 5 days – update on baby’s position.

I just returned from my OB appointment.

My Dr. said she couldn’t confirm it was either breech or face down based on the heartbeat or by feeling it, so I have an ultrasound on Thursday to see.

Her recommendation was that if the baby was breech then, we schedule a c-section for 39 weeks but hope the baby moves head down and I go into natural birth.

Her professional opinion is that she is not a huge fan of trying to move the baby via version. She feels more than 50% don’t move and it can cause a lot of pain and stress on the baby.

So now we wait and see.

3D/4D Photos of Baby #2


I’m now 33 weeks and 1 day old and still hanging out in Mama’s belly.   Mama’s OB suspects I’m about 4.5 pounds now and 17 inches or so.

Even though she said I was already faced down, she was WRONG.  Mama & Papa found out yesterday that I was on the FRANK BREECH position! This means my bumm is facing down and my feet and hands are up near my face.  So essentially I’m in the shape of a V.  See the photo on the left, that is the way I should be to be delivered, but instead, I’m the other way, the photo to the right.

BUT… I still have 7 weeks or so to turn around on my own, otherwise, they might have to have a little assistance in moving me.  Worst case, I’m going to be delivered via c-section, which is something my Mama does not want!!  Fingers crossed I get moving soon.

Yesterday my parents were able to get a few great views of me during a 3D/4D ultrasound.  They were so shocked to see how much I looked like my older brother, Soren.  They said my nose and mouth are the same, along with my super long fingers.  I yawned, stuck out my tongue and even stuck my toes in my eye socket. Below you’ll see the photos of me – aren’t I cute!

Here are a few photos of my brother Soren right after he was born.  Still do not know if I’m a boy or a girl and will not find out until I’m born!
