I got a great report at the doctor yesterday. Everything looks great, my blood pressure is perfect, I only gained one pound since my last check up, the baby looks completely healthy and is right on track...........

except........

the little rascal has flipped around and is now breech!!!!


When we had a sonogram at 34 weeks, he was in the proper position, so sometime over the past 2 weeks, he flipped. The ironic thing is that I know exactly when it happened! This past Saturday night, I was sitting on the couch, trying to relax. We had a super busy day and although I was exhausted, I had to let my body unwind before I went to bed. Steven had gone to bed early because he was fighting getting sick. While I was sitting there, I began feeling some serious pressure. It went down into my legs and in my back. I was also having some contractions but nothing consistent. I remember thinking, "Oh Lord, please not tonight." After about an hour, all the pressure and contractions subsided. But now I'm pretty sure, Asher was just practicing his somersaults!

Please pray that he will get back into the right position because if not, I'll have to have a c-section and I sure don't want that!

When we left the doctor yesterday, I told Steven, "I hope this isn't a sign of things to come with this child!"

Love y'all!

Praying for Asher to flip back
I had a friend whose daughter did the same thing - she was able to get Charlotte to flip back before the delivery
Also they can do things during labor - add pressure to make the baby flip into position

BUT I am praying that the little guy will just flip himself right back down :)

Love you - and thanks for being REAL!

Somehow I'd lost track of you and so I'm overjoyed to come here and see that it is just about time!
