Much ado about nothing…

I came in to work at 8:30 this morning. There was a message on my voice mail from the ultrasound clinic saying they had a cancellation at 9 if I still wanted to change my appointment. I called back, wondering if they would be open (the message had been left at 4:30 the day before, just after I left work). Miraculously, they were open and the spot was still available. I jumped on a bus and I was there 15 minutes later.

So it turns out the baby is definitely head down. From what I was able to see, it also has a spine, two arms, two feet that are definitely kicking me in the ribs, a nose, a mouth and five fingers on at least one of the hands. He/she was sucking his/her thumb during the ultrasound. The technician also said the cord was not wrapped around the neck and there was still a good amount of fluid. All good (as long as the baby doesn’t decide to turn again, but that would be surprising).

I guess I’m all set now for a natural delivery. Hopefully I won’t have any more surprises… Now I can concentrate on our son and make sure everything is ready for his birthday tomorrow!
