In Position!

Headed to the maternal-fetal specialist yesterday for follow up tests after last week's episode. And guess what? The baby is fully in position! Over the past few days, she has turned from breach (head up) to sideways, to head down, and now - her head is starting to wedge itself into my lower uterus, pushing against my cervix. WOO HOO! Well - there are two sides to this sentiment - I'm happy that she is progressing, but the pressure/discomfort has raised significantly. But somehow it's easier to deal with it all when you know its only a matter of weeks until she is here!! They've moved me to a twice-weekly doctor schedule to keep an eye on her and me until I deliver (or they decided it's time for me to deliver!). Every Tuesday I will head to the perinatologist/specialist to do an ultrasound and check my cervix, etc. And every Thursday I will head to the regular OB to hook me up to monitors and check for contractions and the like. Can't believe we're SO close! I'm so appreciative for my baby girl (even more so than ever given last week's scare) and can't wait to see her smiling face and be the best mommy I can be for her. Let the countdown begin!!
