Kristi - If I was in your position, I'd ask him to put off his vacation. I wouldn't feel comfortable being alone for so long, and although its still 6 weeks from your due date, its still pretty close and his help and support would be needed.
I called and "fired"
my OB yesterday. I have an appointment at the birthcenter here in Kirkland with my midwives coming up in the next couple of weeks. I love it there, I feel so comfortable. Its like I'm talking to a friend, and I'm not afraid to ask questions. I feel great to be free of appointments in Canada, its such a worry to drive up there every few weeks. Mostly, I'm so happy I'll be having the birth I want.
Monday night I start Prenatal yoga. It'll be nice to get out of the house and hopefully make some friends around here. Since moving here last November, I havn't met anyone around my age or with my same interests. It would be nice to make some pregnant friends.
We painted the Nursery and set up the crib yesterday. All we need now is the mattress for it. Theres no rush, since we are planning on having the baby in our room for the first couple of months anyways, I just want to be prepared. The room is a light green called "cabbage green" with light blue trim. When we picked it out, it seems fairly unisex, but after I got it on the walls, it leans a little towards boyish. Thats okay though, I'm really happy with how it turned out, and its nothing a few girly things strewn around can't fix.
I have a picture of the crib with the bedding in it, and some of the paint job HERE
if anyone wants to see. Here's an example of the paint job from the company we bought the paint from, you can't see it so well in my photo - their example is alot clearer. So pretty!
Anyways, thats all I have to say this week. I'm so glad to have the nursery painted, and enthusiastic that I'll be having my water birth with midwives that I love! I hope everyone's doing well.
