Oh, boy, ocelot! I hope the propane gets resolved quickly so your little one can join you.
kitty, so glad you got in and everything is clear! I hope you feel better.
So sorry for all the various animal issues. There are days I'm really glad we don't have any.
I had a beloved cat before I married DH, but he's deathly allergic to cats (nearly instant asthmatic reactions) so I left her with my parents. She died of liver failure subsequent to steroid shots she was getting for asthma. Thankfully we had DS1 by then so I had a little someone to love on when she was gone! I never was in charge of feeding or litter boxes for any of our cats in the past (ok, not since someone got a clue that 7 and 8 year olds shouldn't be!) and so I had all the fun and none of the trouble.
My boys always say they want a dog. I have 3.5 wild animals already and think that's quite enough.
Saw my MW today.
Had a nice chat about birth desires, how the last two went, etc. Went over birth supplies and I ordered the rest of the things I need from inhishands.com - AND it's already shipped!
Seriously, they were faster than Amazon.
We talked about homeopathics for labor and I was glad to hear that she does, indeed, carry 50 and is comfortable using more than half of those when needed.
We talked about Smooth Transitions (supposed to help in transition) and she has that, too, though isn't a huge proponent of it. So if I need it I can have it but I don't have to buy it.
And... I see her NEXT week!
I can't believe we're already at the weekly visits mark!
I told her about my latest cervical check and she wrote it down which makes it seem official.
Baby's doing well.
She said we definitely do not have a 10lb baby. I'm aiming for 7.5lbs so that's good news.
Had a little bloody show while checking last night and some today, too. Still too early for it to be significant but it won't be long!
I need to look over my lists AGAIN but they are getting shorter! Air pump and hose will be here in two days. I ordered "What Baby Needs" for DS3 and "Heart and Hands" (midwifery text) that will also be here Wednesday. Then my birth supplies should should up in 2-3 days (since they are already marked shipped and are in the same state). By 36 weeks, I should actually have everything I NEED!!
Now if I can stand up long enough to move the laundry I can start washing baby things and get them ready, too. These BH are making everything a bit tricky.
Bathroom construction seems to be on schedule.
We had jackhammers out today working on moving drains and then they were moving the shower head and stuff like that. My DH is going to be SUPER spoiled. He's 6'5" and will have a shower head mounted at 7'6"! It'll be on an adjustable arm so I can get it somewhere closer to me.
I still need to go view the progress but all reports are good.
Was looking at Zutano Itzy Bitzy clothes today... Oooh, my... I can't wait to have a little tiny baby to dress! And if it's a girl, I'm in BIG trouble.
