Everything is fine so far - we just reached the magical "full term" date last weekend and we're both healthy, which is more than we hoped at the beginning of this adventure. The problem is that the baby is sideways which is apparently not good. I'm under strict instructions to call an ambulance if I go into labour as it could quickly become a medical emergency.
Usually they will try to turn the baby manually but at the moment they don't think that would be a good idea because of the abnormal shape of my uterus.
I have an ultrasound tomorrow and then an appointment with my obstetrician Thursday to set a c-section date and an appointment with my midwife Friday to talk about how they will coordinate with the obstetrician during the surgery. So I do feel like I'm being taken care of.
