Yard sale


Had a yard sale today…on the hottest day (it seemed) of the year. I am disappointed with the amount I made but it’s more than I had going into it. By the time you take out the money you spent on the newspaper ad and the money in change to start with, you expect to still have a good bunch left….well, not this time. My sister tells me I don’t charge enough for my junk. I am an ‘el cheapo. I just want to be rid of the stuff. Oh well….off to Goodwill I go to drop off all the “unwanted items”! I did save a few things to list on ebay since I tend to make more money there – it’s also a lot more tedious work on my part but usually worth it. As for the yard sale, at least I got it done before the baby makes her debut.

38 weeks update


My pitiful attempt to write a “cheesy” poem at almost 2 a.m. –

Another weekly routine check today;
No progression has been made.
Not surprised – I am the typical case.
All the walking I’ve done this week, I’m in a race.
The ultrasound performed today
Showed she’s measuring at seven pounds, they say.
Membranes were stripped – no comment to add
Haven’t had the first contraction since, too bad.

While I was busy….


While I was out of the room for a few minutes, L managed to find the baby powder. His older brother showed him how to open the top. When I returned, the couch was covered in powder. Needless to say, I need to buy more now.

A welcomed the challenge of vacuuming the couch and floor after the powder spill.

L has also found his brother’s rain boots. He likes trying to flip over and looking underneath his legs.

Cereal Inspectors


A and L both like to eat Fruity Pebbles (we buy the generic kind). Here they are inspecting the package just before bedtime to make sure there’s plenty inside for breakfast in the morning.

Remember when we used to “rock the pool” when younger? We would walk as fast as we could from side to side of the pool or walk really fast around the inside edge of the pool to get a wave of some sort. A and L have learned the technique.

This week’s checkup


Visited my midwife again today. Small progression has been made…..I’m now 2 cm dialated (1 cm last week). I hope I dialate more than that over the next three weeks or I’m in trouble. She advised me to take some Evening Primrose Oil to speed things up a bit so we’ll see how that affects me over the next few days. She did say that the baby seemed a bit small so she wants me to have an ultrasound next week to get a fetal weight check as well as measure the amniotic fluid. She didn’t seem concerned so I’m not concerned. However, she is going on family vacation the week before I’m due so that DOES concern me. I must admit that I’m praying for my water to break next week before she leaves (or wait til my actual due date when she’ll be back).

Anyway, enough of that….no one really cares about my cervix……ha!
