It's hard to believe that I will begin my induction in less than 1.5 days. I still have mixed feelings, actually, my feelings are pretty confusing lately and I don't even really know exactly how to explain them. But I am happy that the baby continues to be doing well.

The last 9 days the baby was breech so I was trying to prepare myself for my scheduled c-section. I really didn't want a section so I went on line to see if there was anything I could do to try to make him flip. There were lots of ideas, some really crazy ones that I avoided like hanging upside or standing on my head, lol, but also some that didn't seem to crazy to try. Though I must have looked like a nutcase to anyone who came in my room while I was in the middle of the floor on my hands and knees trying to distract myself from the discomfort by playing a game on my ipod (didn't help) while I had headphones pressed against the lowest part of my belly, held in place by my underwear to get him to turn. I also spent a lot of money on a relaxing belly massage at the hospital and an accupuncture treatment to get him to turn. Well it WORKED!! He was head down this morning. Please please please pray that he stays that way until he arrives!!

Thank you so much for all of your thoughts and well wishes. It means so much to know that I have so many people thinking about me and praying for my family. I look forward to posting good news as soon as I can.

    Father I decree and declare the favor of God, for this birth, that it will be quick, perfect and so beautiful. I pray for a strong healthy baby boy with a set of loud pray my friend Jenna will be relaxed, and comforted to know you are in the room holding her hand and guiding this birth along with your angles present to make sure that all is well.
    I praise you and thank you for his amazing strong birth, and I thank you for blessing my friend Jenna with a healthy baby boy.
    In Jesus Name,

    All is well...
    I love you mama...

    Great news that he flipped. Good for you for thinking outside the box and coaxing him to do what you wanted. Can't wait to hear all about his arrival and see some pictures.

    Jenna, I absolutely have faith that you will soon be a smiling, happy, mama...and I know that it is an understatement to say that little Aidan will be so very loved and adored.

    Your emotions must be running the gamut right now! I bet you go from excited to scared to thrilled to worry...and everything in between. Easier said than done, but try to put your mind on auto-pilot and the time will pass faster! This gift from God to you is what I've been praying for for almost 2 years now!

    Good luck, my sweet friend, and please post pics as soon as possible! I KNEW God had a baby planned for you...
