Pregnancy Journal: Due Date!

By | August 4, 2011

Well…I’ve made it!  Tomorrow marks 40 weeks.  This is currently the most pregnant I’ve ever been — my first baby was born at 39 weeks, 3 days.  (Assuming I’m still pregnant…I’m writing on Sunday.) I’m feeling very positive.  Yes, I’m sore…yes, I get up at least 12 times at night to use the bathroom.  Yes, Read More

Pregnancy Journal: The Doctor Question

By | July 28, 2011

This week finds me at almost 39 weeks pregnant…assuming I still am, by Thursday!  I’m writing on Monday.  Tuesday will be the point in pregnancy at which Daniel was born (38w4d) so all bets are off now.  (Wednesday night — still pregnant!) It has me thinking about a number of newborn-related things, one of which Read More

Pregnancy Journal: Labor is Soon

By | July 21, 2011

Here I am, almost 38 weeks…. Of course, by the time you read this (I’m writing Wednesday morning), the baby may already be here.  Tuesday I decided that I absolutely had to go through the kids’ stuff and create a bunch of homeschooling materials (at least it’s done now?).  Then I had to clean out Read More

Pregnancy Journal: Full-Term, Freezer Cooking, and Nesting

By | July 14, 2011

I’m almost 37 weeks!  Full term!  Which, to me, means nothing more than baby will be okay whenever s/he decides to come.  I’d never schedule an induction (not that I can with a home birth) nor do anything at home to try to get baby out.  Now, if I’m still here 4 weeks from now, Read More

Pregnancy Journal: Preparing for Birth

By | July 7, 2011

**Quickly — any bloggers out there??  I need some guest posts for a few weeks when the baby comes!  I’d like to have most of my posts covered by others in the first 2 – 3 weeks, so that’s a good 10 – 15 posts I’ll need!  It’s pretty good exposure for a newer blogger, so Read More

Pregnancy Journal: Connecting with Baby and Preparations

By | June 23, 2011

I am almost 34 weeks now.  And I finally have a new camera so you can see a picture of what I look like above!  A bit different than 24 weeks, my last picture, right?  Things change fast at this point in pregnancy! Baby’s head down and a bit lower than in the past (I Read More

Pregnancy Journal: Baby’s On the Move and Birth Pool Choices

By | June 16, 2011

I’m almost 33 weeks now.  For the last few weeks, baby’s been in a rather…odd position.  It was kind of diagonal, with its head over my left hip.  It was absolutely impossible to get comfortable with the baby in this position.  Lying on my side felt so weird because of the way the baby moved, Read More

Pregnancy Journal: Nesting, But Not Really Getting Anything Done!

By | June 9, 2011

I’m almost 32 weeks now and nesting is hitting.  I’m itching to get in the kitchen and start making and freezing batches of…anything.  I know I’m slowly running out of time, so I really need to get moving! Actually that applies to everything.  I haven’t found and gone through my birth kit from last time, Read More

Pregnancy Journal: Preservation Season

By | June 2, 2011

I’m almost 31 weeks pregnant now, and it’s just flying by.  It’s kind of ridiculous.  I mean, my next midwives’ appointment, which is in 2 weeks, puts me at 33 weeks (almost).  Then two more weeks and I have another, at almost 35 weeks.  Then my home visit two weeks after that…and then weekly visits Read More

Pregnancy Journal: Thinking About Goals

By | May 26, 2011

It’s been…kind of a crazy week.  I’m almost 30 weeks pregnant and time is going really fast now.  I’m trying really hard to keep up with everything so that I can hopefully get ahead…and get stuff ready for the baby.  But that’s getting really, really hard since the summer’s coming, the kids constantly want to Read More

Pregnancy Journal: What An Adventure….

By | May 19, 2011

I’m almost 29 weeks…and had an adventure at the mall yesterday.  Here’s a thought: there’s a downside to consuming very little sugar. I woke up Wednesday morning feeling fine.  And actually I had a physical on Tuesday afternoon confirming things were fine.  I didn’t really eat breakfast because my parents were coming and we’d be Read More
