Congratulations, Lynn!   birthday.gif to Aiden!  Having finally bothered to try Skype with family, Saturday, I realize how nice it will be to be able to do similar things, once the babies are born, and everyone is home, again.  Your family sounds like a much bigger version of mine, farther off.  

 

I feel good about getting in a lot of long walks, lately.  Also, I feel better about making nice dinners the last several days, instead of sort of skimping on effort; and having had the groceries I've been using delivered, instead of walking to the store and rolling/lugging them home.  It was just getting to be too much, but I kept being focused on other things till we were out of necessities, and it was too late to get them delivered the next day.  It's good to feel a little more organized, and less worried about the strain of getting things back with me.

 

I feel VERY GOOD about how strong my babies seem, the last couple of days!  They feel like small newborns playing in the casing of my skin, rather than tiny creatures floating inside and sometimes hitting the walls around them.  I can really feel the change in their size, just in the last week.... I'm hoping they're near the three-pound mark, now.

joy.gif  Yippee!  I called my o.b.'s office for lab results, and passed my glucose screening with an 88 (out of the 65-140 normal range), and am told my hemoglobin is 12.1.  (I really would like to keep it from going lower, but yay for not being anemic!)

Thank you!!!  I hope you do!!!

 

In other nice news, Monday, on a walk, my husband and I ran into the husband of the couple with 8-month-old male/female twins we'd heard lived in our building, out getting the babies some sunshine.  Five minutes ago, bringing laundry up from the basement, I met his wife (with the twins).  She seemed really nice, and encouraging about how lovely having the two is, despite the extra challenge.  So, here's being happy for the possibility of nice, twin-parent friends in the building.... a specially lovely thought when the bitter winter sets in.

I got an amazing massage today! She spent a good long time rubbing my arms, my belly and my back. The hip stuff hurt, but that's expected. She kept seeming like she was done with my belly... and then she'd do more. Bliss!

I just did a modeling job and it went so well (usually my jobs go either fantastic or terrible). I got some amazing pregnant pictures that I am really happy with.  He's going to email me some soon just to be nice.  :)

It doesn't make you horrible to get your Vitamin D the direct way! :)

 

It got cold again here yesterday & today, but I had a great appt with the midwife yesterday, and I'm really pleased with all 3 of the midwives on my team, now that I've seen each of them 2 or 3 times & feel like I actually 'know' them a bit more. They're on top of things, making suggestions I can live with, and I can opt out of the GBS test, with no negative consequences unless there is actually a clinical indication of risk during labour/delivery. With my last doc if you opted out of the test, you automatically went on IV antibiotics, so it was very good news to know that was not the case with the MW, and that I have 3-4 weeks to decide either way.

Yay for all the good stuff!  thumb.gif

 

I got a call this morning, asking if I could go in for an appointment with the doctor I'm hoping to switch to, Tuesday!  joy.gif  That's exactly two weeks since the last appointment (and the day I hit 30 weeks), meaning I lose no appointments, and - unless there's a surprising lack of liking for this new doctor - will be in the care of someone whose past decisions, at least, leave me a lot more comfortable....

It's so good to hear all your good news, ladies! As for me, I am FINALLY able to sleep without getting serious hip and back pain. I think it's a combo of going to the chiro, swimming, prenatal yoga and the baby just went from traverse to head down. Yea!

Yay cat! Sleep!

 

I can finally sleep in a bed again! And my belly is big enough that I just put a folded up towel under my ribs and belly and get all the support I need. It's nice :)

Although I was less than productive on my three days off - the past two mornings I've been super duper productive before work!

I REALLY REALLY REALLY want a new camera before the baby is born- preferably a DSLR. So I've been selling things on eBay and etsy that I've been meaning to sell for MONTHS- so far I've made $200! The more awesome thing is- the three things I've sold cost me $10 combined originally! I listed a ton of dog clothes I have had sitting around for a year or two- if even half of those sell I'll have another $200, then if I can sell both retired American Girl dolls that I found at the thrift store- I should have about another $200! joy.gif:joy:joy I really enjoy thrifting and reselling. I'm considering doing it as a hobby business when DF leaves to go into the army- I'm not quite good enough yet to make a living off of it, but DF will be supporting the family for awhile anyway and it will be something I can do to bring in extra money, that will be easy to do with Magnolia and its something I love.

I tried Traumeel (http://www.traumeel.com/) on my rash because I read it posted somewhere that someone's midwife recommended it. Oh, it's good! I had it anyway because I adore the stuff, but didn't think to use it on a rash. Probably it tells me not to. Eh. It helps so much :D

 

And Dusty's nieces are coming to visit for about 15 days. I think they're 9 and 13? Something like that. Should be fun! Get me out of my recliner and into the sun. They live in Eastern Kansas, so I'm plotting all the awesome things to show them that they've never seen - the ocean (not completely sure they've not seen it, but they haven't seen it here), mountains, volcanoes, temperate rainforest, Seattle, Portland, and all the different people up here. I immediately wanted to take them to one of my favorite places here (Darby's - http://web.mac.com/darbyscafe/iWeb/Site/Welcome.html) but Dusty thought we should ease them in a bit so they know that here it IS normal to have men in skirts with dangly earrings. Oh yeah :) I forget.

 

Very excited about that visit!

we had our first vacation ever  that did not include visiting family or friends far far away. Just the two of us and no plans, it was great - I am very thankful that we decided on this in Feb of this year and made it happen, it was worth it even for three days! So, I am happy about that in general.

 

What I am stoked about today is that there was a letter waiting for us when we got back home late last night, from my health insurance saying that they are approving our MW as an out-of-network referral!!! Yikes, I really was not holding my breath for this, just figured I would give it my best shot and still can not believe it. Sure, nothing is guaranteed and they can change their mind etc. But for now, I feel good about this.

I used the slow cooker to make a batch of black beans yesterday.  I haven't really cooked anything since Feb, so it felt really good...and they taste really good too!

Yeah we just moved into the rent house we're in now this past weekend.  It was ridiculous!  All I can say is my poor husband!  He was so good to me though.  He said next time I'll be more supervising than anything, so at least he understands that I'm not gonna be able to do much.  But I'm so excited!  We were so worried we wouldnt be able to do anything before August, but the couple moving out need to get out quick and we need to get in quick so I think it may work well.  But I'm not unpacking anything we don't absolutely need so I don't have to do it all again we can just move when the time comes.  And baby needs to stay put til then!

One of my very dear friends went into labor about an hour after she unpacked the nursery, on the day she moved in to her house (the first house she and her partner every bought, in fact).  It's kind of a sweet story...  But fingers crossed that your bun stays firmly planted in that oven until you get settled!!

while i should have been studying all weekend for my encroaching finals, the weather here was beautiful for a three day stretch!! this is the first time all season.....  so clearly, i blew off my studtying and spent hours upon hours in the sunshine and garden. oh my goodness, what a difference the time and love has made! i was even able to get the little house i've been dreaming of for the kiddos to play in this summer all ready to grow up....it is a form made from long stiacks and bamboo, with sunflowers, tall snapdragons, sweet peas, cosmos, and willow growing up and all around. i have had the willow alone rooting since february.... what can i say, i am a fair weather gardener.shrug.gif  doesn't mean i can't dream in the winter.winky.gif

 

so the yard is starting to look beautiful and amazing.....and......this is finals week!!! i am done with two classes, and only have three more to get through tests with before i can cross this term off my list. that will feel so good. i am never, never, taking 18 credits again. i am, however, taking 12 credits this summer.....ack! ......but mostly they will be online credits, and one class i have had many a promise that the teacher is super accomodating, and that the class has a lot of good info but is still easy. right up my alley this summer. it will help the time to pass....

 

omg, 8 more weeks! i will be holding this babe before i know it. i have so much i have to get done!

I've been feeling creative this week.   I re-wrote a short story I originally wrote a couple of years ago, and also wrote an essay (about the weird negative things people sometimes say to pregnant ladies).

 

Also, I just peeked at my Amazon registry and noticed 5 more items have been purchased!  I managed to resist the urge to scroll down and see what they were or who bought them.  So it looks like I will get some surprises in the mail soon!

Finally got inspired with colors for painting most of the rooms in the new house-- the theme?  "Serenity in a Tree House"-- we're in a wood-sided home in the woods, hence the tree house feeling, and I want every room to inspire a soothing, zen-like feeling.  For the first time in my life I'm bringing out some taupes!  I've always had very brightly colored rooms in my house, but the trouble with this new house is that brightly colored rooms would not fit well with the general vibe.

 

And, we're meeting with a doula today!
