Happy Happy Joy Joy

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood. . .la la la la. Good news from the doc today. I had an ultrasound and placenta has migrated north just a wee bit. .7 centimeters to be exact. Which is JUST enough for a regular old delivery. NO C-section!!!! I almost cried with joy. I still have to have one more U/S in 5 weeks to re-check but all looks good. I also have an "official" induction date. Baby #4 will be joining us on July 6. I get to have steroid shots next week to move the lungs along and an amnio on July 5. If all is good, we get to meet the last Lampen baby on July 6!

And no, I did not find out the gender. :-)

Yay!!!!! So happy for you. Do you need a doula? I'm free to drive down to IN on July 6. ;)

I can't believe it! I'm so happy for you...Doug says, "this never happens! He's heard of something like this but never actually seen it." Yeh! A regular old delivery!

Um, Amanda - i already called doula at the very beginning. However, with the price of gas, I may have to give up the honors if you can afford the drive.

Congrats on the migratory placenta. Good for you! Way to go on the bedrest:)

AMAZING!!! Praise God!!

You are going to have this baby before me and I will hate you forever for that!!!!

kkoois said...

sorry, amanda and jana. i am her doula (hate that word). no one can get her through labor like i can!

i know you're happy, jen, about no c-section, but i say it's the way to go! love them sections - great pain meds!!

Mommy Brain said...

Um hello, I'm the famous doula! I'm the one she really wants attending the birth!

Jen said...

You can all be my doulas! Anyone who owns a uterus is welcome to be there. This is my last hurrah. :-)

Jen said...

Except maybe Kim. She wasn't quite "supportive" last time. Told me I had bad breath and kept grinning and giving me the thumbs up. And saying things like, "Holy crap! That's a huge contraction!"

kkoois said...

i may not have been useful, but i was fun.

candi said...

Where are you delivering at?

PS I have no interested in seeing someone come out of your crotch!!

Jen said...

St Anthony's with you! We can be neighbors. Take your castor oil on the 6th. :-)

Heaven Sent said...

What great news! Hopefully this baby just slides out!

BTW, do we get to know the final names????

Tim said...

Good I can take a nap with all the doulas there!

ms leo said...

She doesn't have to heart to tell you that the job has been promised to me since before conception. Sorry girls. . .but I can videotpe it if you like. Does youtube have rules against that sort of thing?
