Dear Baby,

Yesterday I got to see you on ultrasound again! I was thinking we'd done that for the last time before meeting you here in the outside world, but something came up and our midwife wanted to have some more information about what's going on in there. Rachel went with me, and we got to enjoy seeing you wiggle around and pucker your tiny little lips.

Your face is much fleshier than it was the last time I saw it. You're starting to look rather normal and human! You can get yourself into some really impressive positions, too. When the ultrasound tech said, "There's the face...and there are the toes!" Rachel and I decided that someday you might become a great yogi.

There is just one thing we need to talk about though: your position. While I am totally impressed that you can hold your foot right by your head, all the time keeping your knee completely straight, the positions you are choosing relative to my body are potentially problematic. The way you were lying yesterday, parallel to the ground with your axis perpendicular to mine, will simply not work for when it's time to come out. For now it's ok, but in a few weeks, you'll have to give it up until after you're outside of me.

Secondly, when your head is up, as it is right now, I have constant heartburn and your feet can kick me *hard* in the bladder. I know it must be fun to be able to do flips and somersaults in there, but as the weeks go on, the amount of room left for you to rotate decreases. Please turn around so your head is near "the exit," as your Dad is calling it, and I promise, we'll all be a lot happier.
