Pacing myself

ok, I'm calming down and I've hit my stride as well as I can with all this. Two weeks down, two weeks to go of long hours (hopefully, but also probably). I'm saving my sanity by reading science fiction/fantasy books for teens (good writing without the sex and violence in grown up novels) and looking for maternity clothes and other baby things on ebay.

I had my second pre-natal appointment. It was much less involved than the last one and it was with Kristy, who was at Georgia's birth. Baby's fine, heartbeat's fine, and I always impress them with my low (110/64) blood pressure (they don't realize it's always low, pregnant or not). I got my date for an ultrasound- October 6, the day the great question will be answered and we'll all KNOW it's a girl. Kristy told me that a Baha'i midwife has been hired by Carle Hospital and she will probably be all licensed and pracising by my due date. Now that would be cool, but there's still the whole rotation thing where you can't know which midwife will be on call when you go into labor. Anyways, it's all good.

Well, gotta go bid on the Baby Bjorn I've been lurking on. The auction's over in a few minutes.

I'm so excited about the Baha'i mid-wife. Almost makes me wish I could be pregnant again...almost. And I'm also so very excited to find out the sex of your little one!
