This and That

I haven't been very wordy here lately, but I have been updating my photo blog semi-regularly, so if you want to see what we're up to, that's a blog to add to your reader/follow list/etc.

Had a great prenatal with my lovely midwife today. Unfortunately, she didn't get to stay for supper as we had planned, but it was good to see her and get an update on the baby. FHTs 144 today, Fundal Height 25cm, various and sundry body fluids are fine. BP a bit high today, but hopefully it's just a fluke.

Visited with an OB last week who is willing to be our backup in case of transport. We don't anticipate needing to transport to the hospital, but being able to have an OB who is familiar with the mom is a wonderful thing about having legal midwives. It makes continuity and quality of care much better in the rare cases that the mom needs to transfer to the hospital from a planned home birth. We're excited about having a doc who is willing to work with us.

I have a post to write about our recent yard-cleanup efforts, but I think it will wait for another day.

This Friday, we're doing a progressive dinner with several of the families that live close to us. We'll be having appetizers here, salad at the K's, main dish at the W's, and dessert at the T's. Should be a great time, and I'll try to remember to take plenty of pictures.

So... there you have it... this, that, and the other!

I am so excited for you that you have a midwife there! And that you will be able to deliver at home, Lord willing. So incredibly cool!
