There's a rumbly in my .... Ribcage? + belly pic and prenatal update

This morning while I was laying in bed my stomach started to growl. Except it wasn't in my tummy, it was in my ribs. I cannot express how bizarre that feels.

We had our prenatal appointments last week, and baby girl is looking good. She's still basically transverse. I think Joseph was until he was 28 or 32 weeks or more, so it's nothing to worry about for now. I gained almost 10lbs last month. Oops. My blood pressure is still catatonic, though, and I'm not swelling or anything.

I blame the fact that I have to drink a gallon of fluid per day now to stave off dehydration headaches, and I'm incapable of doing that with just water. So I've been drinking 1/2 gatorade 1/2 water - a half gallon of gatorade per day is not exactly the picture of health, but it's better than the alternative, I suppose. I'm sure the weight gain has nothing to do with ice cream, or chick-fil-a, or the 4th of July party and additional week we stayed with my inlaws, filled with mayo goodness.

I'm surprised at how different it is being pregnant in the summer. I thought it'd be no big deal, but it is.

So, anyway, I'm pretty enormous now. I'm creaky and cranky and sore and I waddle everywhere I go. I look about as pregnant as my friends who are a couple of months ahead of me, and I got my first "you POOR thing" at the store the other day when I said I wasn't due until the end of October. :P

Without further adieu, here are the photos:

What are your thoughts on the Webster Technique for transverse babes?

I'd try it, but I wouldn't worry about it till at least 34 weeks. They are too little and will just go back to a preferred position before then, from what I've read. I never had to do much about it, as Joseph turned on his own to a good (though not ideal) position.
