That brings us to today. We got up bright and early and fixed some paperwork that they had messed up on for the closing and ran it out to West Jordan. After that I had my weekly OB/GYN appointment. Trent had the day off so I left Jane home with him and ran up to the appointment. The doctor did his little exam and said that I was barely dilated to a 2 and that I hadn't really thinned at all. Good news. Then he checked the baby's position. He wasn't quite sure with just feeling so he brought in an ultrasound machine. He put the wand high on my belly and immediately said, "Yep, we have a breech baby here". So all those kicks to my bottom and dancing on my bladder were actual kicks and dancing because little man is head up! So tomorrow I get to go into Labor and Delivery and have a procedure called External cephalic version where they try to manually, from the outside, turn the baby around. It has a 50% success rate. If they can't turn him, I will have to have a C-section. If, in the process of turning him, Little Man's heart rate should drop or something else go wrong, I will have to have an emergency C-section. But if they can turn him, I will be able to wait it out and have him normally. That would be the best option. He is healthy and happy he just doesn't like to turn. Already a trouble maker :)
After I got home from my appointment, Trent started packing things up in his Blazer in hopes that we'd soon get possession of the house and he could start the repairs out there. Sure enough, at around 1:00pm our Realtor called to tell us the house was ours!!!!!!!!! That's right, it's official, we have a house!! Trent ran out to the house and started knocking the bad wall down and my little bro met him out there and started ripping out the carpet. By the time Jane and I got there around 4:30, the wall was gone and the carpet removed. My mom had also beat us out there and cleaned all the bathrooms! I can not say what a huge blessing family is!!!! Later my Aunt and Trent's parents showed up and everyone helped either with the house or with watching Jane. Trent's still out at the house framing up the new wall and tomorrow, if all goes well at the hospital, he'll go out and finish up the wall so that we can start painting on Saturday!
What a long and exciting and scary day. Here's praying that Little Man will turn and Trent can work miracles with sheet rock!

For those of you who don't know, we are in the process of buying a house. It has been a long and painful process because we decided on a short sale, but we feel good about the house and hope that everything works out. We got into contract on June 2nd and since then it's been a roller coaster of emotions. One day things seem really great and like they are moving forward, and then the next it seems like the bottom falls out. Who knew that buying a house would be so much stress?!?!?!? Hopefully we will be able to close on our loan at the end of next week or the beginning of the following week. Cross your fingers. We have to be out of our apartment by June 30th and the house (which we have named Rocky) needs some love before we move in so we were hoping to have at least a week or so to get things done. Needless to say, we'll be cutting it close. But with the help of family and friends, hopefully things can go fast. While this whole process has been frustrating, we are grateful to be able to buy a house at this time and look forward to raising our family there for the next little while. Now we just pray it all works out :) Here's a picture of our hopeful home Rocky
