Answered Prayer

Well, once again God comes through,  Proof once again that he listens and is in control!!

This past weekend I felt like Landon was moving A LOT  more than usual like I mentioned in my previous blog not just rolling and stretching, like crazy movements, it was even hard for me to focus on giving report sunday morning because he was doing some wild stuff in there, after I got off work Sunday morning I thought for sure this little guy had either flipped or moved in to some other position than he was previously in.  Things just felt different.  Usually I could feel his head right at the top of my uterus round and hard, and he liked to head-butt my belly and push his head out.  Not so much anymore...

Well, Sunday I was noticing more limb movement.  What I mean by this is previously I would only feel kicks on my bladder and cervix, and they were quite painful might I add.  Sunday I could feel feet or legs or something near the top of my uterus...not a hard head... I continued to feel all kinds of crazy limb movements in the front of my belly not down below like before, so I had a feeling he might have flipped but did not want to get my hopes up.

Even last night I couldn't hardly sleep because he was moving so much and then when I woke this morning I felt a weird pressure on the right side of my groin...well come to find out that was his head.  Now, I feel a lot more pressure down there than before and it isn't really that comfortable but I suppose this is the new normal and it is welcomed with open arms if it means my little man is in the proper position to make his debut into this world!!

I had an OB appointment this morning and she did an ultrasound to confirm his position and sure enough he was head down!!!! He still is pretty high, he hasn't dropped yet and I am still barely dilated to a one and not effaced at all.  This is completely normal since there hasn't been any head pressure to dilate the cervix like nature intended.  The Dr said she thinks I have a few weeks to go still..well yeah Duh, my due date is not for 3 more weeks.

Either way they said they wont let me go past my due date as I have a small frame and that will only increase my chance of needing a c-section because of him being too big. So since they do inductions on tuesdays the longest I have to go is about 22 days!!! So exciting and so surreal, I cant believe that THIS MONTH I will have my baby, brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it!!!

So exciting!!

I'm Katie a 27 year old mommy and wife. Welcome to my blog where I will chronicle the happenings of my life as I find the balance between being both SAHM by day and CVICU nurse by night.

I love Jesus and strive to be more like Christ every day. Running, reading, and cooking are some of my favorite past-times. I love photography but I am no pro, but it helps I have such a cute subject to practice on!!
