At my last ante natal appointment, they got out the little ultrasound machine to confirm his position – he’s lying back directly across my front, like he’s lying in a little hammock. He’s apparently very long, and because I am so tall, he has lots of room – which he isn’t using to turn around ready for exit.
This morning I woke up with a feeling that he had moved, and had kicks in different places – I think he had moved to be head down. But it didn’t last – as of about lunchtime, he was back in the hammock, and kicking in unmentionable places.
So now I’m on weekly appointments, and next week if he still hasn’t turned – we have to talk about him coming out the sunroof.
Josephine has gone home, and we’re putting the finishing touches on the nursery – apart from the changing table mat and the nappy service, we have pretty much everything ready for our new family member. So I’m going to try to get out and do a few things that I won’t be able to do when he arrives – like spinning class, movies, and visiting friends.
So if you’ve got some time to hang out during the next few weeks, give me a call!
