My Aversion to a version

So my Dr.'s appointment was this morning at 10:30. I love Dr. Kholer, she is so sweet and as she is due with a baby in October she empathizes with me! She checked me to see how things were going and though the baby's heartbeat was steady & strong, the head was not fully down in the way she wanted it to be. The baby was laying almost side ways! She called over to the hospital and scheduled me for a version as well as possible induction. Needless to say, I was a little nervous. Having someone turn your baby from the outside just doesn't seem comfortable to me. Thankfully when we arrived and they hooked me up to the monitors, the Dr. checked me and said that the baby's head was down where it needed to be. Praise be to God! (and thank you to everyone who sent up prayers for me!) They have to monitor you for a minimum of 20 minutes before you can leave the hospital, so after that they released me and I went on my merry way. Since then my contractions have been anywhere from 2-5 minutes apart and gaining in intensity! Maybe I'll have this baby after all!
