Oh My Cylon!

Today we had the 1337th week scan and oh my, Cylon B (the breech one) has turned! TURNED! After everyone told us that if s/he hadn’t turned by 32nd week then there probably wouldn’t be enough space for acrobatics apparently there was! The lesson is obvious: do not underestimate these hybrid Cylon entities – they have a plan. (And I decided to celebrate with lattes and almond croissants all around.)

So this of course throws the chilled out scheduled c-section, and regular birth (x2) is back on the table. This is good news because I would rather avoid major surgery where possible but I am not feeling overly precious over my birthing experience. If I end up needing a c again then I’ll roll with that in the same way I am rolling with the prospect of having a regular birth. We’re seeing my OBGYN on Friday so will have an updated plan of attack then.

In the meantime I’m glad that we took the birthing class, and I’ll be re-reading the birthing section in ‘The Mayo’s Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy’ this afternoon.

    YAY! So happy for you! As for birth – the only preparation you can do is talk to your partner. Have him understand when you say something, you mean it 😉 All your yoga has you as prepared mentally as you can be. You will be great no matter what! And recovery would be so much nicer with a vaginal delivery, especially with 2 little ones to care for, that’s for sure! Good luck!

      The shock that B has turned has just about sunk in. Your words are comforting as I think it’s best not to over think the birth as who knows how I’ll react until it’s going on. Seeing OBGYN tomorrow so will have an update to the birth plan – fun times!

    Glad to hear that B has turned! I have the same pregnancy book as you. I love that it is not full of “woo” like the other ones I’ve seen.
