Woohoo! After a 53 second (Joe counted) external cephalic version this morning, baby Ava is now in the head-down ready-for-birth-provided-she-stays-there position! We're both very excited and are very glad we went ahead with the procedure. It was definitely not pleasant; in fact it was very painful but at a minute, it was do-able. I am not so sure I would have been able to stand it if it continued for 3 or more minutes, but luckily it was quick.
Now we have to a) hope she stays in that position and b) wait.
But for now we do a little happy head-down dance and hope all continues well!
