someone owes this baby a pony

Guess whose placenta moved a whopping 4 cm?

Guess whose baby is head down?

Guess who is cleared for a vaginal birth?

Guess who is so happy she cried hot fat tears in the doctor's office?

Me me me me me me me me me me. So we went out for sushi to celebrate where Gabe consumed copious amounts of seaweed salad, chicken katsu, edamame, and broiled eel. And I thanked my lucky stars for a beautiful boy, another beautiful babe on the way, and hopefully an easy last couple of months of this pregnancy. Thanks for all your prayers and positive thoughts. The baby has his or her head wedged between the placenta and the cervix, so maybe I also have him or her to thank for tugging on that umbilical cord and moving that placenta out of the way. Who knows, but we'll definitely be celebrating in this household for quite some time.

AWESOME! I know the relief you are feeling. I had the same "scare" with Elle and while I was ready to accept whatever got me a healthy baby & birth, I was overjoyed to know that wouldn't be my only choice. Here's to having the beautiful, healthy and happy birth you wish for! Te felicito.

That is such great news! Phew! I wish I could have had a natural birth with Mack, but his heart rate was dropping and when they did an emergency C, they found his cord wrapped around his torso and foot. Not fun.
