We have a date.

My meeting at the hospital went really well today. I saw a different doctor who was just lovely (turns out the midwie doesn't like the last doctor either but that is an aside), he listened, he wasn't patronising, he was great. The outcome of the meeting though was that this baby is still breech and looks unlikely to move so I have been booked in for a section on the 23rd December.

I know this is probably a bit too close to Christmas for some peoples liking and the midwife did apologise for the date and double checked it would be ok, but it is fine by me. I don't want to be booked in too early and even if I do end up in hospital over Christmas it is worth it. They do think there is a possibility I will be able to go home on Christmas day all being well, which would be nice, but I'm not going to hold out for that just incase.

So it's all rather exciting! I am now definitely on final countdown.

At least with that date you can be SURE you won't be cooking the Christmas dinner!
