Kiki's 37 Week Checkup

Last Friday we had our 37 week doctor's appointment.  We had previously been told that Kiki had flipped over and was head down, but when they did the ultrasound, it was clear that she was still head up. 

The doctor referred us to a specialist nearby who might be able to help Kiki turn head down.  After examining Kira and taking this fabulous ultrasound pic on the left, the doctor said would not do the procedure becuase the umbilical cord was wrapped around her neck twice.  He mentioned that it is very unlikely that Kiki would turn and that we would need to do a C-Section.

We spoke to our doctor and he mentioned that he would like to conduct the C-Section at exactly 39 weeks, which is next Tuesday, May 1!!  Just one week left until we get to meet Kiki (assuming Kira does not go into labor before that) and squeeze those chunky cheeks!
