Three months. . .

I am offically thru the first trimester and had my first appointment with Karen today. She has an office now up in Charlestown WV that she shares with an accupunturist, so I drove out there today and got to see her apprentice. (Karen was out at an Amish birth today.) I loved the building. It was a cool old victorian in downtown Charlestown and her apprentice was really helpful. She was young, maybe a couple years older than me and she had this really pretty little tree branch tatoo on her foot kind of spread across it. Other than the tatoo though she was mostly dressed like a grad school student on vacation. But man her tatoo was so cool.

I got to listen to the baby's heartbeat but it took her a while to find him as he was so sneaky. Karen's going to do blood work for me this time which is nice. I'm glad that she can do it and I don't have to go to the doctor to get it done. Otherwise everything was normal and the baby is measuring right for the due date so that's comforting.

I also found yet another 200 dollar thing that is SO cool but I will never afford. Ben thinks he can make it for me if he has the time. Okay I'm gonna try a link.

That is the coolest thing I have ever seen!! I love it. Do they make them for Mommys too?

That is rather beautiful, swaying in the breeze. Of course I mostly picture my boys pushing little Josephine--a super push-- and 3 year old vincent, who now delights is yelling while in the car driving to Berkeley, JOSIE, WE'RE GONNA CRASH, JOSIE at the baby, and she laughs a 5.5monthold crazy laugh and then changes the subject to Dada...

Anna,
Hi.

I know I'm this total strange person on your blog, but I think you might know me if you saw me. :) I go to your church and was a freshman at C.C. when you were a senior. :) This is the only way I know of to get in touch with you with a question I have. :)

It's funny you should post about your midwife because I've heard (from Mary Grace S.) that you have a great one and my question is . . . does she only do homebirths, or does she have hospital priviledges? I am three months along too (with my 2nd) and looking for a good midwife, but my husband is anti-homebirth. :(
Thanks!

Hey!

How exciting to hear the heartbeat! I have a sneaky baby too - the nurse said it was probably a boy since it was so stubborn and took her awhile to find the heartbeat too. Wishful thinking - she probably just takes after my hubby, lol! :)

I love those dolls from nova natural too, and was wondering... how did you make the doll for Z? Did you have a pattern? I would love to make one as a gift for Christmas :)

Hey Anna, Sarah's right! They should make those bouncy seats for grownups! There's a fortune to be made...
