Well, we've been *pretty* good this week. I delayed our grocery shop by a good three days; we had some meals that were slightly odd, but tasty, and it forced me to use up a lot of stuff (veggies in...

FyerFly: Oh no, I'm so sorry about your DH's friend. That's hard. :/

Ha! The thing is, I don't. I mean, I spend an embarrassing proportion of each day napping, or staring aimlessly at the computer wishing I were napping. Things do seem to happen, but it's not because...

It actually felt labour-y, kind of. The clutching a wheatie bag to my abdomen, the waves of pain, the 'should I wake DH up yet or not?'... except, you know, infinitely more pointless and yes,...

Ah, OK, that makes sense; I'll go gobble some before I forget. Yeah, I'll definitely take probiotics for a good while afterwards. Our family's prone to autism and I've read some scary stuff about gut...

Thanks guys. :) Yeah, I'm home now - I was only in there for a few hours in the end, for monitoring and pain relief and pelvic exams (shudder) and similar fun. And this morning I'm feeling definitely...

So I ended up in hospital at 5:30 this morning with a wicked UTI and some concerns about preterm labour. That was fun.

I sort of gave up on the 'meeting the baby' thing when I realised how much mine change. Basically, I don't have very precise definitions as to the 'look' of a name - it's mostly just about hair...

And hey, you have a grown-up daughter and dark blue hair. Awesome! :love

Oh, fun!

I henna my hair to dye it. My natural colour's a very boring, nothingy dishwater blonde/light brown, and henna makes it a rich brownish-red I really like. I'm too hippie (and cheap!) to...
