January 2nd is the big day...

At my doctor's appointment yesterday, I found out that Myers is breech. George and I had the option of having the doctor try to turn him manually, but after thinking about it, researching it, and praying about it, we decided to just go with a scheduled c-section. I was afraid that once I made the decision I would keep second guessing myself, but I feel at peace with my decision.

I did get to have another ultrasound so that they could make sure he was breech. I didn't get to see his face because he was facing my back (what a stubborn little boy!), but I did get to see that he has hair. Based on the measurements the ultrasound tech took, he is about 6 lbs. 3 oz right now.

Our c-section is scheduled for January 2nd at 8:30am, so our little man will be here before we know it!

After talking to others who have gone the "manual turning" route, I really believe you are making the best decision for both of you!! More than a third of all births are by C-section these days so you can be sure the doctors and nurses are well-versed in the procedure. I will continue to pray for you but I know everything is going to be fine.
