My exam with the doctor afterwards was sort of surprising to me though - I'm still at 1 cm, but he said at this point it was time to schedule my C-section because of her position.
Ugh. I was not thrilled with that news. But in 17 days, on Friday morning June 26th, if our baby girl has not turned into a head-down position, we will be delivering her via C-section. The last thing they want to happen is for me to go into labor with her in the breech position, which can cause serious complications. And we want what is best and safest for our little girl.
There are pros and cons to it all playing out this way, but I'm trying to focus on the positive side (my 3 day stay at hotel-de-CDH just turned into a 4 day getaway!). I am realizing that labor and delivery is a bit more palatable if you aren't sure when it's going to begin or how it's all going to happen. But that's ok. It is obvious that the Lord has had many things He wanted to teach me through this pregnancy, and isn't done with me yet.
So, 17 days left... to whittle my to-do list down... to nervously consume gobs of sour candy... to enjoy my little boy while he is still an only child... to re-read all of my books about infancy just in case I've forgotten EVERYTHING already!
