Good News!

My amniotic fluid levels went up to EIGHT!
This means Elliot just bought himself at least another two weeks in the womb. Yay!
And one other thing: he's now head down! Which is great! Of course, they warned me that he might not stay that way, but it still makes me happy.
The tech seemed surprised at how small he is. I actually had to assure her that we're already well-aware how far behind he is. But this was at the regular (and small) hospital here in Gaylord, not the office of maternal-fetal medicine in Grand Rapids. So she doesn't see very many high-risk or out of the ordinary pregnancies.
I couldn't be happier. Hopefully he makes it to my next goal: 33 weeks, which is just a few days after my baby shower. :)
