Yahoo!!! Baby Tori is officially full term!

I am so excited to meet her!!  I am still scheduled for the ECV on Monday, is it awful that part of me is secretly hoping that I get to meet her that day?  I really want a natural vaginal birth, but the temptation of a possible c-section on Monday and getting to hold her is really getting to me.  I know that sounds awful, right?  I just am so anxious!

You are only one day behind me!

Sorry, but what's an ECV?  I know what you mean about being tempted.  I'm having a natural birth at a birthing center.  One of my friends is due 6/27, but she's having an elective c-section on Monday and I'm secretly so jealous!

It is also known as an external version...baby is breech and the doc is going to try to rotate her himself.   If she goes into any type of distress, we will do a c-section right then.  The cool part is that if she just cooperates and flips, the chances of me going into labor a bit sooner go up.

Congrats on being full term and I do hope that you have a natural birth since it will be so much easier to hold her after. :) Good luck and keep us posted.

Thanks!  I definitely will keep everyone updated.  I already have my laptop packed in my hospital bag, lol.  I know the natural birth is the best option, the temptation of sooner is just really strong temptation. :-)

 I have an EVC and I packed my bags and I was hoping just a lil bit that my baby would come that day as well. But she didn't. Everything went great with mine. I suggest taking an ipod or something else to focus on. I was so scared it was going to hurt that I was all tensed up, it wasn't painful just kind of uncomfortable having someone push that hard on ur belly.  Anyway I hope all goes well for you!

How many weeks were you at the time of the version and how long after did you end up in labor?  You are the first person I have come across that has had it done.

 I sent you a pm, but I was 37 and I went into labor 2 days after my due date
