But it's not causing cervical change right now.....instead......

THE BABIES ARE FLIPPING! And it's anybodies guess who will get there first. Ben is trying to beat her down there to become our presenting baby. He's beating the crap outta Claire already.

I'll update if it gets going and people start coming out. Otherwise I have another adjustment in the morning, and I think that's going to seal the deal!

Last night I was telling DH about you and that Ben was trying to beat out Claire and he said "As he should, he SHOULD be born first.... that way he can protect his little sister". Awwww

My friend sent me this video today and I was thinking of you:

ELVs your way!

I'm home and they are both head down!!!!! She wasn't sure who's head was down there, so we'll see on Monday when my MW palpates. I am SO uncomfortable today. My hips and back feel like they are being wrenched apart.

I thought it might be, I recognized some of the belly shots and birth stories. I figured you had seen in a million times already, but it is SO positive. Especially the mama who had TWO almost 10lb babies! WOW!
