We went to see this guy Dr. Magic Hands today to see if he would attempt an external version to turn the sprout. He would not - one leg is down and the other other leg is crossed over it, giving the version an estimated 25% success rate. He felt if he attempted it, I would end up with an emergency C-section today.
So, the plan is to stick with the plan. I'll continue seeing the midwives, at least through next week and hope the baby turns. I'll begin acupuncture treatments to help the baby turn this weekend and I hope to get a chiropractor appointment for next week. I'll be doing breech exercises all weekend as well.
If the sprout has not turned by my appointment on Tuesday, my care will be transferred to Dr. Magic Hands. I'll see him on December 1, where he'll determine if a)the baby has turned; or if b)I can attempt a vaginal breech delivery; or if c) I need to have a C-section.
So, it's all about position, position, position! Oh, and to add to the problem, he thinks the sprout is already around 8lbs, making the chance of him spontaneously turning even less because he's already large.
But, I'm hopeful. I'll be envisioning my baby turning and crossing my fingers. And my toes. And my legs.
