Cute lil thing!

At my almost-40 week appointment, my midwives were like "uhh, dude, your baby your baby is breech, you should go get an ultrasound to confirm it since if she is you have to deliver at a hospital." So I went to get an ultrasound. It was so cool! The baby still seems to be a girl and she's soooo cute. Her face is in the upper left corner of that picture and her right arm is across most of it, if you can't tell. Somehow in between weeks 39 and 40 she'd managed to go from the nice head down position she'd been in for months to the exact opposite of that. Weird.  I went back to see my midwife and she pushed on my belly for about an hour and she was able to squish that baby back where she should be. It was pretty crazy. 

Now I'm 4 days past my due date with no end in sight. Ah well. She'll be here soon enough.

Garden, blanket, baby, stuff like that

My garden is doing better than it was after the floods. I reseeded most things a couple weeks ago, so maybe the long growing season down here will be an advantage.  Most things are trying hard to come up this time.

The rosemary and basil (both growing in pots instead of the raised bed, argh) are doing great and I use them all the time. The carrots and pumpkins look like they might end up doing pretty well, too. Something weird and diseasey is going on with the tomatoes, but they are growing pretty green stumpy leaf things, so I'll just let them be, whatever. The radishes look pretty good (at least that's what the caterpillars think). The corn might end up ok, but I am not very optimistic that we have enough for them to actually be pollinated so we'll see about that. The spinach is the only thing that just refuses to do anything. Maybe it's a bad batch of seeds or something. Either way, I like watching everything grow!


I finished knitting the baby blanket. I think it turned out even better than I expected! It's a bit on the bright side...

Baby Adventure

I'm still pregnant. Luckily, I'm due next Friday, and due dates mean that that is the day the baby will be born, so yay! ;)

It's awfully hot here

37 weeks

There's the belly. May as well put it first since I am getting used to following it around. It's been sooo hot, like in the 100's, this week. I have a feeling that being pregnant for the next 3 weeks till my due date and most likely the week or two after that are going to totally suck. At least I got cleared for a homebirth so any time that this baby feels like coming, I guess I just jump in my cute little smiling sharks pool and she'll just pop right out. ;)
