Doing good

hey everyone! we're hooked up to our very slow dial-up internet now. i don't think we'll be posting any pictures any time soon, haha! although when nadia is born, one of us will use a member's computer to post some pictures then, so no worries there!

we're doing good here house-sitting for jonathan's mamaw. yesterday morning around 4am i had some contractions that woke me...i have to admit i got a little bit excited about the possibility of the baby coming early, but the contractions went away after an hour or so and haven't come back. i did go to the doctor today for my 37 week checkup and everything seems to be going great. my strep b test came back negative, and my iron level is great. i measured 35cm and nadia's heartbeat was in the 140's (her norm). the doctor did check me and i am 1cm dialated and 50% thinned out, so i guess that's good news :). it's just a waiting game. i'm so anxious to meet my 3rd baby girl and learn all about her.

i've been working on finishing up a blanket for nadia today..i am attaching the binding. wouldn't you know liberty started acting up when i was sewing and now there's a pucker in the binding on one side...ugh! oh well, i guess it gives the blanket character, ha! i'm also almost finished with nadia's knit hat. i haven't even gotten the materials to make a ring sling or a new nursing cover yet...hmm...

alright...i guess that's all for now. know that we are doing well and trying to keep up with everyone. and we're enjoying some crazy nice weather...it has to be at least 70 degrees and sunny today. makes it hard to believe it's january. usually it's cold and rainy this time of year here, but the past few days have been like summer!

sounds like things are going well for you too! wouldn't it be interesting if we have our girls at the same time?

Wow! Can't believe that you are that far! And that you have some of the labor work done ahead of time:) I never am that lucky...I go to the hospital and they can't even find my cervix to check!

And just as an encouragment...the ring sling will take you a whole 20 minutes to make once you have the fabric and rings...you can get them at Lowe's in the hardware section.

I also found a great site about using just a piece of fabric...check it out http://www.mamatoto.org/Default.aspx?tabid=121
