And The Verdict Is. . .

The acupuncture might have actually worked! I also did an inversion before I went to bed, then slept on my left side all night. When I woke up this morning, I was pretty sure she was head down. After walking around at work all day, I'm fairly confident she is! My figure is even different today. Who knows what might have done it, but if she is indeed head down, I am incredibly happy.

As fair warning, this next bit might be TMI. I've been having some uncomfortable/painful contractions this afternoon. At first, I ignored them. But then I went to the bathroom, and there was something mucousy that may or may not have been mucous plug related. It was clear/white, but thick and stringy. It looked like my mucous plug with Miss M, only that one was tinged pink. This wasn't at all. But I'm feeling kind of crampy, too, with lower abdominal cramps, and I'm having whole belly contractions. Nothing regular, nothing super painful, nothing involving my back. . .but, something.

My doctor is away this weekend, and I have never met the person she has covering for her, although she says that the woman is very much like her in terms of perspective. I really hope I am not going into labor this weekend, as I really like my doctor, and would rather she is there for the delivery.

My due date is two weeks from tomorrow. I still have time, right? This baby won't come this weekend, right?

Okay, good. That's what I thought.

So glad she may have turned! Hoping you're able to hold out until your doctor is back in town!
