He Flipped!

We had our follow-up ultrasound yesterday, after the doc heard that he was breech or transverse, and I am happy to report that Owen has flipped into the head down position on his own!!! I was honestly surprised, I could have sworn he was still breech based on where I thought I was feeling movement. But he's officially head down and ready to go!

However, my doc warned me that we're not out of the woods yet. Apparently because he did flip so late, that means that he still has some room in there, which means that he could flip again. So she would like to continue with monitoring via ultrasound until the end, just to be sure that he doesn't decide to turn himself around again. She also told me that when I do go into labor and head to L&D, to let them know that he just recently flipped and to request an ultrasound at the hospital so that we can be sure he didn't flip back to breech. She doesn't want me going through hours of labor, only to find out that he did flip again and will end up needing an emergency c-section anyway (thanks doc!).

So right now, we're in good shape!

Unfortunately, as of this morning I am not dilated at all :o( My cervix is nice and soft, so we're on our way, but not quite making any progress just yet. I will admit that I was hoping for a little something, but oh well... there's always next week, right?! ;o)
