Cute lil thing!

At my almost-40 week appointment, my midwives were like "uhh, dude, your baby your baby is breech, you should go get an ultrasound to confirm it since if she is you have to deliver at a hospital." So I went to get an ultrasound. It was so cool! The baby still seems to be a girl and she's soooo cute. Her face is in the upper left corner of that picture and her right arm is across most of it, if you can't tell. Somehow in between weeks 39 and 40 she'd managed to go from the nice head down position she'd been in for months to the exact opposite of that. Weird.  I went back to see my midwife and she pushed on my belly for about an hour and she was able to squish that baby back where she should be. It was pretty crazy. 

Now I'm 4 days past my due date with no end in sight. Ah well. She'll be here soon enough.

I am not a huge home birth fan (for which you can probably blame my being married to a doctor), but I am glad she is cooperating for you. I hope it goes great! I'm very excited for you guys (and a little jealous).

She looks pretty cramped in there... have you told her how much more spacious it is outside of your uterus?

Yes, and I explained about Angry Birds and chocolate cake and boobs and all kinds of other awesome things and still nothing. Silly kid. :P
