Cozy Baby Isn't Going Anywhere

     Well this baby is not coming any time soon.  Sigh.  S had a doctor’s appointment this morning and they confirmed that she is not dilated at all and that the baby hasn’t dropped yet either.  S’s normal doctor was off “catching a baby” so she saw another doctor in the practice.  According to that doctor Jude needs to come down another 4 inches to be fully “dropped”.  And the doctor freaked me out by thinking that Jude was breach.  So they sent S in for a quick ultrasound and saw that no, he is not breach, he is head down like he is supposed to be.  That is a relief.  We really want to avoid a C-section if at all possible and with a breach baby you don’t tend to have many choices unless you can get the baby to turn.  So I guess he will continue to cook up a bit cuter in S’s tummy for the time being.  I keep teasing her that he isn’t going to be born any time soon because she has made him too cozy in there.  So the cozy baby will probably be staying at least another week if not longer in the tummy.  I’m just hoping at this point that he will be close to on time. I think it would make us go crazy for him to be more than a week a late, so fingers crossed that he will be born in January and not February!
