Update on the pregnancy

Well, it has been a crazy week for us. Last Wednesday, we went in to have a check up and the doctor checked to see if I was dialated. When he checked, he told me I definitely wasn't dialated and that he couldn't feel the baby's head. So, we had an ultrasound done. I guess our baby is a little bit directionally confused - he is breech. His head is right up under my ribs and his bum is right where his head is suppose to be. So, the doctor gave me two options. He said we could try to turn him or we could just schedule a c-section. We decided that we wanted to try everything we could to have him natural, so I went into the hospital on Friday and the doctor tried to turn him. It was a very painful process, and unfortunately he wouldn't turn.

So, we are scheduled to have the baby on Friday, May 23rd at 7:30 AM. Of course this isn't what we planned on or expected, but we are just happy that he is safe and everything looks good. We just want him to be here, no matter how that has to happen. Unless I go into labor on my own, we can plan to meet baby boy Morrison on May 23rd!
