My Little Nugget

Here's a profile picture from yesterday's ultrasound, where Bebe #3 measured in at over a week ahead, and I'm just entering the phase in which the baby gains most of her weight.

Unfortunately, she's still breech (ugh), and because of her size (4 1/2 pounds), the doctor and ultrasound technician said she only has about three weeks to get herself flipped around. My doctor mentioned the technique used to flip the baby, but he also confirmed that the procedure is quite painful and is accompanied by the possible risk of an emergency C-section if the baby's heart rate doesn't recover after the flip. It's also not guaranteed to I'm just thinking lots of flippy, gymnastics thoughts for bebe and hoping she turns herself around on her own :)
