Well, I'm 35 weeks pregnant and our baby girl is in a transverse lie which means she is sideways in my belly. Sideways is no way for a baby to come out naturally so this is not good news for us. I have less than a week to try every trick and technique out there to encourage her to move head down. After 36-37 weeks, she will be too big to make her move. We have an ultrasound scheduled next week to check the progress and from there, we may need to schedule a procedure called an external version done in the hospital to move the baby head down. External version may result in labor so we may be having a baby in two weeks! We are currently facing a C-section as our only option for the delivery so we are praying for miss Elizabeth to turn soon so we are able to have the natural, unmedicated birth we have been planning for and are hoping for. We will keep you posted!
