Flip Flopper

Is it possible that all those crazy contractions last weekend were Baby Amelia trying to turn herself over? If you said "yes," you would be right!

I went to my regular doctor appointment on Thursday who confirmed that Amelia is not only head down, but is also low enough that she shouldn't be able to flip back over. Actually, what he said was she is "locked and loaded," a phrase that conjured up some not-so-pleasant imagery but ultimately translates into "your internal organs will not be laid bare on an operating table any time in the near future."

Now that the fear of a c-section is gone, I feel ready to have this baby. Well, actually I need to get my hair cut and colored one more time and then I'll be ready.

I am sooooo happy for you! It is, however, just a little unfair that you did not spend ONE minute upside down on your ironing board and STILL that baby turned!!! Love ya!

Well, at least there was a good outcome to the craziness. I can't wait to see what she looks like. Hope you can take it easy (I can hear you laughing out loud) this week. We had our original LH small group Christmas party today and I was wishing you guys could have been there.
