Planning the unplannable

That's funny that I thought it made perfect sense to revitalize this blog while pregnant. Obviously that didn't go so well.

An update, at 37+ weeks: Baby is breech, butt down and head up. At least, he/she was a week ago. We've been doing what we can to help baby flip, and tomorrow we'll see how things look.

We've spent the past several months preparing for a natural birth- hypnobirth classes, lots of reading, practicing relaxation techniques, all of it. I've been really looking forward to the experience- no fear, just preparation and strength. And here we are, potentially facing an unavoidable c-section. I'm not yet accepting that as the final answer, but still: A lesson in not being able to control it all. I'm trying not to get caught up in it until we know for sure what's going on. Everyone is healthy, and whatever happens this little one will be in our arms very soon.

It's amazing how the parenting lessons begin so early!
