So… the version done to flip baby didn’t work :(. I had prepared myself to endure whatever the doctors wanted to put me though (marathon/training mental prep works for other things as well!), but with no avail. It was painful, I’ll give it that, but not as bad as it could have been. I was pretty bruised for a while, and even running two days later hurt since the bruised/swollen area didn’t like being jostled.
I am a little bummed that the recovery back to running will be a little slower with a C-section, but my doctors have been great. They’ve said that they think that 2 weeks out I’ll be able to hop on an elliptical (well, probably more like “step slowly onto”), and that I can try run/walk workouts shortly thereafter. I am very hopeful…

-Run as much as my heart feels like. So far I’ve been feeling great, and last week I had two great runs just under 5 miles each. I know I’m lucky that I’m not having any pregnancy-related running issues!
