C-section

{Pregnancy Update} I went to the Dr. last week to discover my sweet little peanut is NOT heads down like she should be. (I wondered...she kicks me and hits nerves I didn't know I had. OUCH!) I am at 38 weeks and so one of our options was to go to the hospital on Monday to see if the Dr. couldn't manually turn her. This lovely procedure is called an external cephalic version. Let me just say I'm t-e-n-d-e-r. Just imagine all the wiggle room I have left in that abdomen of mine (NOT) and 2 sets of hands pushing, cramming and shoving to get this baby to move (on the outside, luckily)!!! It hurt. A lot. But...it didn't work and little peanut is still heads up. So now we get to have a scheduled C-section for April 6th. (It was April 5th, but just got a phone call changing it to the 6th). This will be my first, so I'm glad that I can prepare myself and give myself time to plan ahead. Crazy to think that I'll be holding my little Zoey (yup, that's her name) in just a few short weeks!!! {Lukas offered to do a photo shoot with me. He's not too bad with the camera. I am a complete cheese head on the other hand.}

Oh no! At least you have time to plan like you said. Good luck! I can't wait to see her. I bet she has a full head of hair like the other two did. Love her name.

JaNece! Why couldn't I look like you while I was pregnant with Lilah? It's really not fair. I'm excited to know the date of your little princess! C-sections are...different (I assume since I've never had a natural baby) but they're way fast! Plus it gives you a little extra excuse to stay off your feet for a few more days!
