One of the best ways
to prep is to normalize what’s gonna actually happen. So… we’re gonna watch
a little video. You guys ready? All:
Mm-hmm. ( “giving birth”
video playing ) ( screaming ) Jessica:
That’s a head coming out. – Shay: Oh, my God.
– Ooh. And it’s the child
screaming or the–? Jessica:
That’s the mom.
That’s the mom screaming. – Oh, my God.
– I can’t– Oh, my God, I was at,
like, at zero, now I’m at a fucking 110.( woman screaming )Oh, my God.
Oh, my God. It looks like
an alien movie. Oh, my God. Jessica:
That’s the head
and then the vulva. That head is stretching
the vagina. Oh, my God.
Oh, my God. Jessica:
You hear her screaming,
“I can’t do it.” I don’t know, she’s pulling
on the head so hard. Oh, my God,
I’m gonna be sick. ( laughing )
Oh, my God. That’s crazy. Wow. I can’t do this. Jessica:
And the baby is crying. – Yep…
– You okay, baby? I’m solid. Shay: ( retching )
Oh, my God. ( music playing ) I’m wearing my sleepers now
because, well, that’s what happens
at this stage, so I heard. We’re going up to
the doctor’s office and hopefully I’ll have
better news next time. You okay? I mean, okay as like,
I can be with that. I honestly was going
in there thinking that everything was good
and she was head down and now I have to have
an ECV at the hospital where he will
physically push on my belly
to move the baby and I don’t know how
the hell that’s gonna go because I had
somebody tell me that that was like almost
just as bad as labor. – Really?
– Yes, they have to forcefully
move her in your stomach. I don’t know
if I can watch that. I can barely watch when
you push on your stomach. It makes me feel like, weak. The idea of watching
your stomach like that, knowing that
she’s inside there,
it’s like, crazy. Anytime you ever
wanna get mad at me
in the future, just like think about
what I’m going through. – I know, I do.
– Well, let’s test it, because I think I shrink one
of your vintage shirts. ( music playing ) I know, but,
it wasn’t me, it was the baby brain. – Which one?
– On the wrong setting. Potentially the
really expensive one
from Tokyo. Yeah. – Anyways…
– That’s okay, honey. Thank you. How are you
gonna fix it? Giving birth
to the miracle. – Okay.
– Yeah. ( music playing ) Shay:
My mom is coming to town,
which is awesome.But at the same time,
her presence in being herereally makes this
whole thing feel real’cause I’m like,
“Oh, the countdown’s on now.”– Hola.
– Hi, Angel. Hi! How are you? – How do I look? Big?
– Yes, you’re so big. Look at Angie. Angel, are you jealous?
Are you jealous, Ange? How was your flight? – Was good.
– Yeah? So, how was
doctor’s visit? Not good. – Her head is right here.
– ( gasps ) So her feet
are kinda wrapped. This is her bump,
stomach and head. Wow. Do you know
what that means? You have cesarean?
Oh… No, it’s not the case yet ’cause I’m still,
almost 38 weeks, I still have
two weeks. Okay. So I’m gonna
do anything. If you told me to eat
a bunch of pig shit, I would do it
at this point. Okay, whatever
I can do to flip her around
so I don’t have to. – I’m giving you good energy.
That’s why I’m here.
– She needs to flip. Come look at the nursery. Now remember I’m not done
or anywhere near it. – Oh, my goodness.
– Yeah. Oh, my goodness. – So, right now, crib.
– This is nice, I like it. And then look at this. Look how cute this looks. – Even though this is–
– Oh, my goodness. Look at all
all ready. Oh, where’s my suitcase?
Because I brought some clothes – of you when you were a baby.
– You brought clothes? – Hang on.
– Oh, my gosh. – This is your first
– Oh, my gosh. – Grandma Marguerite– Yeah.
– I remember this
from the photo. How did you keep this
in such good condition? – This has lasted like…
– I kept them– Yes. 32 years. What are you gonna be
wanting to be called? I know you had an
issue with grandma. GG. You wanna be called GG? Yes. Glamma or GG. So she’s gonna be walking around
being like, “Hi, glamma.” Yes. ( laughing ) I cannot be
called grandma. – GG… GG…
– Hey, GG! Gorgeous grandma.
Glamorous grandma. ( both laugh ) She’s honestly
my stomach. She just kicked me,
“Are you kidding me?” Yes, I know,
she said, “See?” Wow, all right, GG. Matte:
Whoo, this is
what we’re doing. Trying to turn the baby. Shay:
Before my ECV appointment,I am going to try
everythingin the book
to get her to turn.Acupuncture…I’m gonna apply heat and this should make
the baby active. – Chiropractor: How’s this
pressure for you?
– Great. Shay:
…seeing a pre-natal
chiropractorAnd putting headphones
on my belly.Hopefully something
to go to hospital. We are going to go
in for the ECV, which is, when they physically try
and move her in my stomach. And it is really painful
so I’ve heard. Please, can you be
head down? ( sighs )
Crossing fingers. ( music playing ) Shay:
I don’t know
what else I need. What’s this?
You need this too? I need that too. That’s a lot
of toiletries. No, no. Listen,
this is overnight, this is when I’m in labor, like, I’ll ask you
to hand me something, there’s headphones
in here. I have my
hand sanitizer, which everybody’s
to use after. This is the
in-labor bag. – You have toothbrush?
– Yeah, I have that all. – Okay, so listen.
– All right, so that’s all
you really need. By the way, I’m not gonna
need this too anyway, but I like the fact that… Yeah, it’s just that
there’s a 5% chance something
could go wrong. and I could have an
emergency C-section. So we should pack. Hair curler? – ( clearing throat )
– It’s a what? It’s like a waver,
Wait, hold on. Just in case,
I can’t do this,
can you try? Like this,
down like that,
if I’m like… Like, you wanna
crimp your hair? It’s not a crimp,
it’s like a nice wave. Anyways, we could be
there for three days, so we might as well
be able to do something. What are you bringing? Nothing, honey.
it’s all about you. – I know, but– Yes.
– A toothbrush and face wash. – That’s all I need.
– Maybe another pair of clothes,
just in case. I hear your sense
of smell is really,
really sensitive. Really? Okay, whatever you need.
You want me to bring it? I’m joking.
( laughing ) ( music playing ) I’m not feeling
that nervous, I’m more so like,
I really wanna believe
that she’s head down, Joanie:
Yeah, yeah, so you don’t have
to get through this. – Yeah.
– Matte: She moved crazy
the other night. Like, it looked like literally,
she came out of the skin. When I was trying
to flip her around. I know. I don’t know if she’s going
triple axles in there or if she’s actually
moving south, so… It’s not gonna happen,
but worst case scenario, if like,
something happens and you actually have
to get a C-section today… I can’t even
talk about this. It actually
makes me upset. Hey, it’s not gonna
happen anyway. Hmm? ( sobbing ) I know,
but if it doesn’t
happen today, I don’t wanna
have to do that. I know, but they’re
gonna spin her today. We’re 3 for 3 right now. Placenta is out of the way,
you have lots of fluid, and the baby is sitting
high enough. Like, there’s no question,
she’s gonna turn today. Honestly,
it’s not just the surgery, it’s the recovery time. I cannot be bed ridden
for however long
it’s gonna be. I really don’t want that. – If I’m in bed,
I’m gonna go nuts.
– I know. No, you don’t, ’cause you’ll be
able to live your life still, and I’ll be fucking stuck
after the baby’s born, like, you can’t even
lift them sometimes ’cause it hurts so much. Babe, she’s gonna
turn today. If she’s not already turned,
she’s gonna turn today. I think we ought to have
a C-section, that’s the only thing
that’s making me feel better, to be honest. Joanie:
( laughing ) ( music playing ) Okay. Doctor:
All right. – What?
– Matte: See, I swear! Joanie:
There’s a miracle somewhere. Doctor:
Great. – All: Yeah!
– Oh, my God. Oh, my God, I thought
that I still felt her head. Matte:
That’s amazing. ( music playing ) Shay: ( singing )
Oh, my gosh! Oh, my gosh! Guess who turned,
guess who turned. Whoo! I told you, you didn’t
have to worry about it. – Matte: That’s what I said too.
– You never had a C-section? – No.
– So, exactly, you can’t be
like– I was terrified. I could’ve gone in right then
if something went wrong anyways. I know, I just had a feeling,
I know it was gonna turn. – You did? Yeah,
– I did. Like you knew it was
gonna be a girl? Yes, I did.
I knew it was a girl. So am I gonna go
early or late? I have a feeling
it’s gonna be early. This could be
the last night. ( sighs ) This could be
the last night. – Are you ready?
– Are you ready? Yep! I am. Ready to meet her.
