Presenting Part

Yesterday I went in for my 5th ultra sound. Yup, my 5th. The ultrasound technician looked at me and asked if I was pregnant again!

When I went to my 37 week appointment the doctor checked me to see if the baby's head was down. She could not definitively tell by palpation. I was scheduled for the ultra sound to determine the presenting part and the estimated fetal weight.

Diagnosis: Breech baby, 7# 6 oz.

Prognosis: Eternal Cephalic Version or Cesarean

We opted to try eternal cephalic version and the obstetrician was very caring and successful! Now here's to hoping she stays standing on her head for 5 more days.
