Baby Update

So I'm not sure what to think. I had yet another check-up yesterday. We're to the point where you see more of your doc than you do anyone else it seems. Anyway, we had a brief moment of excitement when she thought that baby had finally decided to move head down. However, she thought maybe we should go take a quick peek via ultrasound just to be sure, since we're getting down to the fish or cut bait stage. And wouldn't you know it, this little guy is sitting on his butt, spine along my right side, legs facing to my left side, and that sweet darling head wedged up into (I'm pretty sure!) my diaphragm, "cushioned" by my lower right ribs. It was so fun to see him squirming around, even catching him blink, that I ignored my inability to take a full breath without pain for a minute.

Funny thing is, I'm not concerned. At this point his birth, no matter the exit route, is all I care about. And he's coming out, one way or the other, of that I am sure. So we'll just see what he decides to do. And like the king says, why wouldn't it be a c-section, we've covered all the other bases with the girls. Too true.

B#6 sat very low the whole pregnancy, but she didn't turn head-down until the very end. That little guy still has a little time. How much "little time" exactly? Less than a month, right?

I hope that he turns around, if for nothing else, that you can have another birth without facing the fear of a stinkin' long needle in your back!

oooh I SO feel your pain...Luke's head was formed around my rib...the doctor had to reach in and lift it off. But really, the c-section was a breeze. How did I make this about me??? I'm glad he's healthy...and you too! How are you doing? I've been thinking about you so much lately...
