Birth Position

For the past week or so, I have been wondering if Baby might be in a sideways position instead of head-down (obviously, sideways is not a good position for birth). I was very relieved when my midwife assured me at my appointment today that Baby is definitely head-down. She also talked about creating a "baby hammock" with my uterus, by leaning slightly forward when I sit or being on my hands and knees some every day. This apparently helps Baby rotate into the best position for birth.

A good friend of mine whom I have known all my life (we were bridesmaids in each other's weddings, too) came over at 1:30 today and we chatted until 5! Thank you, Lord, for friends. :-)
