"Adventures in Babyflipping"
My 37th week started out with a doctor's appointment where it was confirmed that our little one is still breech and is weighing in at approximately 7lbs 2oz.

Here is the list of baby flipping techniques I've tried.
I've lain upside down on the stairs
I traced a flashlight down my belly so the baby could “follow the light”
I've lain upside down on the couch
I’ve talked to my belly to try and coax the baby to move down
tapping all the while so my little one knows which way is down and doesn't get lost
I’ve done an external cephalic version, otherwise known as a version
where they physically try and move the baby by pressing and rubbing on your belly
a traditional Chinese medicine therapy where you burn Moxa near your pinkie toe nail
I’ve done several different yoga poses
I’ve crawled on all fours
I’ve visualized the baby rotating around into the proper position
I've gone swimming - floating in various positions
and last but not least
I've prayed almost constantly that this little one will get itself turned around
