Heads OR Tails?

It's official. After a bit of a coin flip (or body flip in this case), our little boy has finally chosen tails. He is coming out head first, and is definitively back in the bum up and head down position. Fantastic!  We had an ultra-sound today to confirm his position and to have the normal healthy baby checks. The doctor who studied our ultra-sound report told us that the baby is 5 1/2 pounds and is estimated to be about 7 1/2 pounds at birth (totally doable), presenting in the cephalic position (head down) and top to bottom appearing to be an extremely healthy baby. You know what he did then? He looked Peter straight in the eye and said "Well Done".  I had to laugh when Peter sheepishly looked over at me, and said "Good Job".   It was like being told that the cake I have been baking for 36 weeks is estimated to turn out just perfectly and being congratulated on the prep and baking work. Weird. And exciting. Very exciting.

You know what I feel like I have all of the sudden? Time. And while that might be a fool's gold because we all know this baby could come ANY day, it's given me some relief that we will be moved and settled before this show hits the road. Excellent! So we're happy... the house is 80% done and our baby is healthy, happy and head down once again. 

Love you all!
