Birthday wishes to the mamas with birthdays this week, heidirk and Amber_Lion, right?
Nothing interesting to report here. As I mentioned before, I'm working a lot - twelve long hours on Friday, even. Looking forward to getting through the next two weeks at work, then I'll be almost finished there for good.
I managed to finish sewing some curtains for the nursery yesterday. That's a good feeling! The nursery is slowly but surely coming together.
I'll be thirty weeks tomorrow and I'm feeling great. I started Floradix this week for slight anemia, but honestly I wouldn't have known I was anemic had they not told me so. So, then, I'm hoping to feel even better once the Floradix takes effect.
Hope everyone has had a great weekend, and a good week to come.
I am a breadmaking maniac

I finally made an appt to meet and interview a ped. Aug 15 at 8:30am. Hopefully I can find a sub for my class that morning or I'll have to r/s. I also scheduled our tour of the hospital which I'm nervous and excited about. I hope it will ease my fears about being in a hospital for something so natural as birth.
My next OB appt is Friday and I'm a little nervous. It seems everytime I go, there's something that I have to decline (last time was another u/s and GTT) and thus explain my views and research on. It just makes for a somewhat stressful meeting even though my OB is actually really good about listening to me and respecting my informed decisions. Thank goodness DH is on board with most of my crunchy-ness now! He can help me advocate. I'm nervously awaiting the appt where she wants to check for GBS. I have a hard time explaining my reasoning for declining that.

I'm declining the test and if I have a fever during labor then I will do the abx.

That's great Amy Lynn!! Congrats! Anemia is pretty easy to take care of but it's wonderful that your GTT turned out so well.
My beads came today! Thanks to all you ladies. I haven't been having one of my stronger days as it relates to the birth process and your beads immediately changed my feelings and gave me power! Each is beautiful and the notes are so warm!
I am in pain! I walked to the park today, pushing DS in the stroller, and back home when we were done. I felt GREAT until about half way home, when I started getting twinges behind my pubic bone! By the time I was home, all I wanted to do was lie down (which I of course did not do). I didn't really think I'd overdone it! My pubic bone and my tendons on the inside of my legs burn. . .
I want an ibuprophen
Otherwise everything is fine, no ctrx or anything.
