Flippin' Happy :)

This is a pregancy post. Please feel free to skip if that is easier for you. If you are skipping today, I leave you with a picture of Sadie and Garnett hanging out in J's office yesterday. J had to work for a half day yesterday and we picked up Rudy's BBQ for lunch for the folks that were working.The puppies and I joined everyone for lunch. :)

Here is a picture of the boy's room right now. The contractor had a really tough time getting the floors down so the room is a few days behind schedule. Trim should be added this week and the room should finally be complete next weekend. We are still waiting for the crib. Apparently, the crib we wanted was not easy to find in white. It had to be sent up from McAllen, TX (near the border)...should be here in about a week (maybe less, if we are lucky!).

We saw Dr. W on Friday afternoon for our weekly check-up. I was was tested for Strep-B...didn't realize she was going to be checking my cervix as well. She said "Okay, a lot of cold and a lot of pressure." Um, she was not joking about the pressure!! Turns out things are starting...I am 1cm dilated and the cervix is starting to thin out. We spent quite a bit of time talking about the version and whether or not it would work. We decided that we make a decision by this morning. While we were finishing up Dr. W asked if we'd like her to take a quick peek at the boy to see where he was located. We both said yes. The u/s room was packed so we had to settle for "Wall-E"...the old, portable u/s machine. Dr. W started looking at towards my lower abdomen area when J said "That's a head!" Dr. W took a look and said "It is! He's flipped!!" All three of us were so happy! The boy has moved to "head down"!! He's currently "sunny-side up" so that will mean more pushing for me and might mean back labor but who cares he's head down. :)


  1. So happy to hear that he's flipped! Sounds like everything is coming together. I'm so very, very happy for you!

  2. YAY good job little one! I hope he flips face down for you too! My little one didn't, stubborn little guy!
