Wrong Way

I had a midwife appointment last Friday where I complained about the top of my belly being really sore, just under the ribs on my right side. I figured my baby was kicking me in the same spot over and over. My midwife thought otherwise. She said that's a classic sign of a breech baby.

I went for an ultrasound earlier this afternoon and my baby is pointed the wrong way. Head up, bum straight down. The sore spot is where the baby's head has been pushing up into the top of my uterus.

This is a game changer folks. Breech was not in my plans for a home birth. I really don't want a c-section. That's my worst fear come true.

I'll be seeing the midwives on Friday to see if there's anything that can be done to get this baby to turn around.
