Feelin' great

So all week, my belly has felt so heavy. The baby's head was in my pelvis. And then something wonderful happened last night while I was watching a movie: the baby flipped around and now its head is up high. I don't know why people get worked up about breech positions; I had the best sleep ever last night. I didn't have any pressure in my lower abdomen and so I could sleep and not wake up achey. Head up babies are so much more comfortable to carry.

I had another baby dream last night. I gave birth to a boy; he was a little blue at first (aren't all babies?), but he pinked up nicely and we named him Harris. He fed great, slept great, and was easy to carry in a sling. It was like having the ideal child. By the end of the dream he was 1 or so and was playing with Scott and Carolyn's kid, Soren. I remember in the dream telling Harris to, "Play nicely with Soren!" It was a nice dream- probably because I actually got real sleep.

Side note: if we do have a boy, we aren't naming him Harris.

I slept in today. We have the day off school and my only obligation today is to see the chiro at 3. This means I should be cleaning up the house so I can enjoy my weekend.

And I'd like to make a plug for the Baby A Baby Swap. There's still plenty of time to sign up and lots of room for more swappers. You can knit or crochet to participate!


  1. My middle child was breech until 35 weeks and it hurt! His head would push up against my ribs or by my heart, oh man was I happy when he flipped!!

    I'm glad "Harris" decided to make you more comfortable :).

  2. Well, my child was flipping around until the very hour he was born! But I'm glad you got some good sleep. And I do like the name Harris, if you change your mind... Ooh, and you have a swap! I'll have to advertise it for you (seeing as I don't knit, not even a bit! But I do know people who do.) When's the deadline?

    Please join my swap. It's a sad little thing as of now. Sniff, sniff.

    PS- does Mr. M have his braces off yet???
