New House

We have moved into our new house and had a lovely first Christmas in it! The unpacking is proving to be a bit of a challenge with Keenan needing to be held all the time.I dont know how he is ever going to learn how to crawl or walk if he just screams and crys whenever he is put down. Is a little overwhelming, knowing that this is our house and that we are responisble for it. The exciting part is that this is where we are going to raise our family.

Sweet Potatoes

Sad news. Keenan's great granny Jean passed away last Thursday, a week tomorrow, so we have had family staying with us during the mourning. It was great to have Chris' cousins (Jill and Chandra) around as they loved(left today) to play with Keenan and we had adventures(like going to Banff). Just sad circumstances. Keenan has been a little bunged up so I am starting something other than rice cereal for him to keep things moving. We had sweet potatoes for the first time today.

Tuesday, November 08, 2005


It's been a busy time that is for sure! We have our possesion date, late December, so we will be living with Chris' parents a little while longer. Which is okay, I am just so anxious to get in my own place.Keenan eats cereal everyday now, and when he turns 6mos I will be introducing sweet potatoes. He had juice for the first time on the first and he wouldnt settle for bed, not sure if it was related or not, we have tired the juice again today so we shall see how it goes. He hasnt been a good sleeper these last few days so I am a walking zombie, but thats okay, still wouldnt trade for anything in the world.

Swimming Lessons

Started swimming today! Keenan loves it! He was splashingg in the water and getting really excited! If I could let go he would probably swim all around the pool. The concept that they are trying to teach is to get the ears in the water so when they are older it wont be a problem. Keenan already let me put his ears in the water so he is already ahead! Its daddy's turn next Monday, I wil let you know how that works out.

Tuesday, October 18, 2005


Still waiting for our house to finish. Not doing much just spending time with the boy. We go to yoga every friday and playgroup right after. Then starting Nov 7 we will be doing swimming every monday morning, We went for coffee with Lindsay who we met at LLL and that was fun, will be going to another meeting on the first monday of next month.

Saturday, October 08, 2005


Keenan is developing great. He reaches out to grab things, plays with his feet, rolls over and eats rice cereal. He is becomming a big boy! I can't believe that he is going to be 5months old on Tuesday! No longer a little baby! We have established a routine and he sticks to it pretty well. Up at 1030am nap at 1130-1200 another big nap from 2-4pm then nap at 7-730pm and then bed at 10pm.
We went swimming for the first time yesterday and Keenan loved it so much that I have putt him in lessons! He was laughing and kicking! We had so much fun.

Wednesday, September 28, 2005


The last few days have been long. I have been pretty tired and not able to do what I have wanted...Finish replying to all my emails. Keenan is teething for sure. He is so drooly and goobery and constantly has something in his mouth. I feel sorry for him but there is nothing that I can do. He is starting to like to play by himself so I will begin to have a little more time. My corespondence course came in the mail so I will have to start that..we shall see how it goes.

4 Months

I can't believe that Keenan is already 4 months old! He has grown so much just in the last month! He is holding his head up when I put him on his tummy and he likes to sit fully not slanted down at all. We just got an excersauser from a friend on our online parenting group for free! He's not big enough yet but he will be soon!
Mommy feels a little displaced right now as mommy is living at granny Barbs and Grandma Ruths on a rotating schedule. It's good because it gives me time with my own family and Chris' family some time without me.

Poor Baby

I think Keenan had his first bug. He was really not having a good time being ill. Chris is always away so we don't get to see him often, which sucks. It kinda makes me irritated that I have the baby day in and day out, but I guess that is what being a mom is!

Wednesday, August 31, 2005

Bad Day

Keenan isn't feeling so well today. He has a real sour stomach , so he has been spitting up a whole lot more. He is really cranky as well. I gave him gripe water for the first time today. I am at my moms because chris is out of town again. :(

Breastfeeding Clinic BAD

I am so unbelievably mad! The breastfeeding clinic called and told me that they needed my appointment so they are discharging us! And this is right after a week from hell, giving him formula that I now know he doesn't need. Why couldn't they have told me this before????? I am so steamed!

Sunday, August 21, 2005


I have been so down and lonely the last couple of days because no one is around. Chris is working and my mom and barb are on vacation so I have had no contact with people. My grandparents did come out last week so that was a blessing.
With my breastfeeding issue I have been taking it hard, and everyone says that i have to do what is best for keenan... i know that, it just really sucks and makes me have to redefine what kind of mom i want to be.

Saturday, August 13, 2005

Internet Woes

Still no internet, so I have to use my parents instead! Keenan has only gained a pound this last month so the doctors want me to suppliment more with formula, which is okay with me but I dont know how Keenan will react.(gastrointestianlly) Granny Barb comes home nect week so we are excited and waiting to see how she reacts when she sees how big Keenan has gotten. My parents are going on vacation so my mom is getting as much of him as she can!
I am going to go to the next lll meeting in McKensie towne so i am excited about that. Our house is quickly being made which is great...thats all for now!

Monday, August 08, 2005


I have not been able to update this site in a while because we have moved to the inlaws as we are waiting for our new house to be built! Keenan is growing so fast! He is already just about 3mos old. Today we are going for his 3mos check up. And No I havent immunized him yet, I feel it is too early and he is still too little but ppl will just have to live with that as I am his mom. We have had lots of visitors and everyone keeps saying how alert he is. He is growing loads of hair and his eyes are still blue. But they should start to change any day now! Well have to keep it short as I am on my way out the door!

Body Size

Well, as you can tell I have been unable to get to my computer to write anything. Keenan's feeding issues are still there as he only gained an ounce last week. But I think it was all the stress..we just bought a house! I will write more on that later.
Keenan doesnt sleep well during the day and we are busy packing to get out of here in 10 days. Hopefully.
I am not sure if this feeding issue is even an issue as Keenan is a small baby and I have always been on the small side. I was 80 pounds in grade 5. And my BMI was 19 (should have been 24) before I was pregnant. I am going to have to start asking more questions as it is becoming increasingly more interventionist. I just feel like if he is growing and gaining weight, what is the issue?

Monday, June 27, 2005


God damn the startle reflex. I can never put Keenan down for longer than 10mins before he startles and wakes up. When doesn't he have this reflex??? When he is sleeping on me!(which i love, dont get me wrong)
We went to the Breastfeeding clinic again today, Keenan was a no go... too tired. So we have to go again on Thursday. He has gained 6.5oz in 15 days thats good right??!How am I supposed to know? Hopefully I wont have to keep going after Thursday

Sunday, June 26, 2005


Chris' friend Ben is moving to England so we had a wonderful dinner party at Morgans house. They pay the same in morgage as we do for rent, so now we are looking to see if we can afford a home. That would be great. A backyard for Keenan to play in. He is sleeping right now so I need to use this short time to do something other than type.

6 weeks

Keenan turned 6weeks old yesterday! I can't believe how much he has grown. We went to the Breastfeeding clinic and they said that Keenan weighed 8lbs 4 1/2oz which is only a half an ounce increase since his last visit a week ago...which I find interesting because we are supplimenting with formula and I am taking that drug to increase my supply. It also feels like I am increasing and when he ate yesterday the doctor told me that he had eaten 2 1/2oz so he isnt starving. I hate how I cant see what he eats but I really want to breastfeed so I am not going to let this stop me.

Naming and Other Things

Wow, what a week! Keenan is certainly a handful. I am never able to do anything but take care of him. We had his naming ceremony on Saturday and it was wonderful! (The weather wasn't )Granny's house was on the verge of flooding! But it didnt, thank goodness. Nadene the reverend did such a lovely ceremony, even with the glitches such as the weather and the forgetting of candles. We have a lovely certificate as well. I dont have much time to write. I am having breastfeeding difficulties so I have to pump and use a drug called motilium so that my supply increases and Keenan gets the food he so desperately needs! Gotta Go!

24 years and counting

Yesterday was my birthday, its funny because it really didn't feel like it, it felt like Keenan's 1month (which it was). Christopher bought me the most thoughtful gift. It's a royal doulton family made me cry! We went over to my parents house and had lamb. Keenan was such a fuss pot yesterday, it's really starting to be taxing as he crys all the time. (except when latched on). Needless to say, I am pretty tired today. Chris is on his second day of SCUBA so I am home alone, again, and will be for the next two days...thats why it is so taxing.
Still wouldnt trade for anything in the world.

Thursday, June 09, 2005


It's so hard to keep this site up to date as I feel like I never put Keenan down! As it is right now he is nursing while I type. I have been having issues with my of them is always clogged so it hurts alot. I am going to a lactation consultant to see if we can nip this problem in the bud. I need to figure it out because I plan on Breastfeeding until Keenan is at least 12months old.
Another issue I have is my lack of Breastfeeding tops, you wouldn't believe how difficult it is to breastfeed in regular clothes. (that arn't frumpy). I did however get a catelouge so maybe i will get some clothes for my birthday!

Saturday, June 04, 2005


Keenan smiled at me today! I know it wasn't just gas because his eyes smiled as well...and he was imitating me! It was so cool to have him actually start to interact with us! He has his good days and then his bad, it actually seems like it goes bad then good, then bad then good. He has a real issue with passing gas. I feel so bad for him because I can't do anything. And I have been trying to watch my diet so he doesnt get gassy foods in the breast milk...doesnt seem to be helping. Chris went to work this weekend so it was really wierd not to have him here with us, but I will survive! My birthday is comming up so that will be wierd, as people want to go out but I can't. And no partying for me...anywho baby is crying so I have to go and attend.

Wednesday, June 01, 2005

3 weeks

So, Keenan is 3 weeks old today. He has been a little bit of a handfull as we don't get to sleep until 2am. He is so mad at night so it takes us a little while to get him settled. He has to nurse for at least 30mins before he will start to sleep. Chris has taken to sleeping on the floor as whenever he moves Keenan wakes up.
We had Patrick(our photographer) come over to take Keenan's baby pictures but Keenan did not want to cooperate. So we had to postpone.
I got my invitations for the Naming Ceremony so I am planning on sending them out this week, so I need to get on that. Also, I have to start planning it. We are not planning to have anything big just family so it should be fun.

So Tired

I can't believe how tired I am. I have just about hit my wall. Keenan is so fussy after he eats so nursing is an hour long endevor. It's quite frustrating, and Chris can't really help because he doesn't have the equipment. I did however get an hour long nap today, so that was good. Keenan is not a bad baby by any means, we are just so sleep deprived that it's taking alot out of us. But, they say that it should get better at the 6 week mark, so only 3 more to go.
I am feeling like I am comming down with something, but I am not sure if that is just the lack of sleep or if I am getting a cold. Let's hope I am not getting sick as that would really suck

2 Ounces

We had our two week post-natal appointment today, and Keenan has gained 2ounces! That makes him 7lbs and 6oz. I thought he would be a little bigger than that as he eats constantly!! He is eating now every 3hrs during the day and 4hrs at night, so I am getting a little more sleep. I am pissed off today though as the midwives have informed us that we have to pay GST on thier services rendered. It's not like $2800 was enough for them, now they want another $200!! We can't afford that! Not with Chris on paternity leave. Stupid Government. Everyother province except Sask. pays for midwifery care, now we have to pay more money? What is this?!? Two teired health care already? It's ridiculous! Chris doesnt want to pay because he says that we signed a contract that said we had to be paid up by 36weeks and we were, so they dont have a leg to stand on...but I dont want them to be mad(what if i need them again...for my next birth???) So irritating. I think I am more irritated because I haven't been sleeping well....with the baby and all.

Visiting Day

Today is the visiting day. I am excited that people get to meet Keenan, but I am also so tired. This one hour of sleep stints are starting to get me down. Thank god I have Chris to help me out or else I think I would go mental. Keenan is not a bad baby, far from it, but he is a very sucky baby. He would stay attached to my boob all day if he had his way. I am constantly feeding him. At first I thought maybe it was me, that I didn't have enough milk or that he just wasnt getting enough nutrients.... but his output is above average so he is getting everything he needs, he just wants to suck. The hard part is that I can't tell between wanting to suck and hunger, so I end up sitting all day feeding. So it gets a little tiring, not to mention a little sore.
As I am typing this Keenan is swaddled and in a sling around my midsection because he freaks if I put him down, so typing and regular stuff just got that much more difficult.

Thursday, May 19, 2005

One Week

One Week. I can't believe that he has only been here that long. It seems like he has always been here. We are pretty much feeding every hour right now as he is going through a growth spurt. I am lucky that I can go into REM sleep as soon as I fall asleep! Chris seems to be feeling it more than me. But, I cant be on the computer all the time anymore so my journal entrys wont be so frequent... but i will try!

Bed Rest

Wow! 3 days of bed rest really takes it out of you! Not to mention having to continually get up and feed the crying baby. But it is so worth it as most of you well know! We have been getting cards and congratulatory emails everyday. Everyone can't wait to meet our little guy. It's really hard to believe that we are actually parents and that Keenan is absolutly dependant on us!
I am so happy and proud to have Chris as my husband as he is the most caring and helpful father that I have ever heard of. Just yesterday night (or morning as it was 4am) Chris took Keenan upstairs after his feeding for 4 hours so that I could have some rest. Also, he has been waiting on me hand and foot! I am so lucky! I have no idea how those single mothers do it. My girlfriend Tricia had to do this all by herself and I admire her even more!!!

BIRTH STORY - written by DH

Keenan was born May 11, 2005, at 9:53pm. He weighed 7lbs 4ozs, and was 20 inches long! It was quite an exciting birth, as we never made it to the hospital! Here's how it happened. Yesterday morning, Alisha woke up with steady, stronger contractions, which were about 6 to 10 minutes apart. They weren't that painful, but stronger then before. We went on a long walk during the afternoon, and nothing seemed to change, so we were a little bummed that it might not be today. She had been having small regular contractions for about the last 3 days, so it didn't seem like it was progressing all that fast. After we ate some dinner (Caribbean Chicken, which Alisha now says might not have been the smartest thing to eat!), and Alisha decided to go and have a bath, as that worked to get the labor moving for her mother. While in the bath, I asked her if she was still having any contractions, and she said that she was, but it was hard to tell because she couldn't really feel them. At this point we started to joke about how this labor thing isn't all that painful, and Alisha said this was easy to handle. Not 2 seconds after she said that, her stomach had a massive rumble; it looked like the baby just kicked and punched in all directions, then there was a loud "pop". I said "Wow, that was some kick!" and she said "That wasn't the baby!" She had just finished saying that when her contractions kicked in full force, like nothing she had felt before! Here is where the pain coping we learned came in!! She had to stay hunched over on the bathroom floor while we called the midwives to let them know we think that the water broke. Maura (one of our midwives, Theresa and Toby came right after) said she was on her way, but not to get too excited, because we could still have lots of time to get fully dilated. However, when Maura arrived about 30 minutes later, Alisha had already began pushing, and when checked was fully dilated. We managed to get her from her birth-ball (thanks Joanna!) onto the couch, and within about 40 minutes he was out and in our arms! Didn't even have time to make it to the hospital! He was perfect! No complications, and as of today, he is doing really well. We will keep you updated, but we ask that no one stops by until at least Sunday (and please call first!!!) as Alisha needs her rest! Best wishes to our fellow class mates, and we wish you all a wonderful birth as well!

Time Yet??

All yesterday I was having mild contractions about 10 mins apart. We kept hoping that they would take off and get stronger. I can totally understand why women say that they were in labour for an ungodly amount of time. I could say that I have been in labour for over 48hrs. But, I really haven't because I don't consider first stage labour to be labour. Today I woke up with some doozys, so now I am averaging 6 mins. So it is getting closer and they are getting have no idea! It's up to the baby. We just have to suck it up and wait for him.

Tuesday, May 10, 2005


IRRITATING!!! Nothing is happening yet and Chris and I are a little annoyed because if he isn't here soon Chris has wasted a vacation day that we would want him to use once the baby is born. It's so irritating because we told everyone that it was time and it was a false alarm. I only have 9hrs until the 36hr window I was given is up. I don't understand why I have to keep going through false labour, I have never been so irritated. I just want to get on with it and have it over and done with. The waiting is driving me crazy, not to mention mental because we don't really want to go out in case my water breaks in a store or something...wouldn't that be embarrasing.
So next time we decide to do this I am not going to tell anyone until he is actually in my arms because now we have to deal with people calling to get updates and we have no news for them. GRRRRR!!!!!
So really, don't call us we will call you.

Monday, May 09, 2005


So yesterday we hit the 39 week mark that was given to us by the doctors and midwives. BUT, May 10 is what my due date was supposed to be according to my last period. And guess what?!!? I had my bloody show come away this morning so the baby should be here(God willing) in the next 24 to 36 hours.
My feelings?? Scared, excited, nervous, wondering if I can handle the pain etc... But, at the same time elated that he is actually comming.
I will let everyone know what happens!

Friday, May 06, 2005


We had our midwife appointment today and everything is still a go! We are just waiting on the little man to decide that he wants to come out. Now both of my midwives think that I won't go into the 20's of May so the longest they think is May 18. But, hopefully it's sooner. We have everything that we "need" for this baby! I got my diapers delivered today (We have a diaper service), I have been waiting for them, for like forever!
We will continue going in walks and trying the raspberry tea among other things to induce this baby. I don't want to wear myself out though, so I don't think that running up and down stairs is such a good idea.
Maura asked me today if I am ready and I think that I just about am. I don't think that I will get anymore "ready" so it might as well just happen.

Sunday, May 01, 2005

38 Weeks

Well, we are now at 38 weeks. How crazy is that?! He is completely head down and dropped into my pelivs and Toby(midwife) thinks that it may even be this week! She said that maybe they wouldn't see me for my next appointment. It's funny though because I am so used to being pregnant that I feel normal. And having the baby outside my body would be the wierd thing.
Some interesting news...I tested positive for GBS (strep B) which is a bacteria in 4 - 20% of healthy women and is only an issue during birth because you can pass the bacteria to the baby while he is being born. So my dream of an unmedicated birth is no longer as now I have to have antibiotics pumped into me during labour. (I don't HAVE to but it's all a game of Statistics and I am not a big gambler). I am not sure if this affects the cord blood banking, probably :(
The only thing that I am worried about is how are the antibiotics going to affect him and his little immune system??
It's so annoying! Why can't things just be normal and uncomplicated for Christopher and I sometime in our lives??
Okay, stop ranting!! I have been getting irregular contractions regularly...:) So my uterus is gearing up for the birth. It's really just a waiting game. Hopefully he waits for Chris to come back from lets say "Wait til the Weekends baby!!!"

Sunday, April 24, 2005

Full Term

Well today I am officially full term! That means that I could be having this baby at any time! I am starting to get scared about labour... I really hope that it don't hurt..that much! Last night we went to the Langdon Firemans ball (town outside of Calgary). We were invited by Christopher's partner Laurie for dinner and then the ball. A guy actually asked me to dance! (That means I am still hot even though I am a blimp!)It was probably our last date so we stayed out a little later than we should have.
I have been having major braxton hicks and pressure and pain in my uterus so I think that delivery is imminent. I still have to put together that hospital bag, which I am not looking forward to, because that means I am just that much closer to delivery.

Prenatal Pictures

We got our prenatal portraits done today! I am so excited about them because it is something that I wanted to do before I became preggo. I was really worried that I would have him before I had the chance to get my pictures done. Christopher was such a trooper, he actually did everything that Patrick(the photographer) asked...even though he did feel a little shy/stupid.
They are going to be black and white and gorgeous! I just have to wait until after the baby is born to get them!!!!

Sunday, April 17, 2005


I had my baby shower yesterday and got so much stuff!! I am not looking forward to going through it and putting it all away! Or all those thank you cards!
I can't believe that I have less than 30 days to go until I give birth, I really have to get cracking and finish cleaning and getting ready. Now since I got everything I am going to have to make a list of things that I have to buy. Like crib sheets or a breast pump.
I am so tired. Maybe I will do another journal entry tomorrow...or not.

Tuesday, April 12, 2005

Soon it will all be over!

Starting to freak out about how soon he is coming. I am really not looking forward to birth, at all. It's kinda scary that he has to come out. I hope he doesn't have a big head. Our Birthing From Within Class is over on Wednesday (tomorrow) so hopefully I have all the tools I need to have this baby!
My shower is this weekend, which is so unbelieveable that it has come up on me so fast. This last month is just going to fly by!
I am not sleeping at all. My mom says that I just have to live with it because he is just going to get bigger and that 's a good thing. Also, I am always hungry but I can't eat as much because of the massive heartburn and the fact that my stomach is have the size it use to be.
He gets hiccups everyday, which can be annoying but it lets me know that he is okay because he is trying to breathe. (I can't wait til I get to breathe again).
I think it's a natural progression to want to get the baby out, or women would never go into labour. It's the wanting the baby out that makes you work hard to get him out!!

Monday, April 04, 2005


Last night was the worst night of my pregnancy! Baby is head down and last night I overate and he moved because I was so full (I think) He went vertex (sideways) and stretched right out. That was uncomfortable but liveable, then he went back head down but put his feet straight up so he was kicking me right in the ribs! Up against my stomach and right in between my painful!! I tried to get him to move by pelvic rocking and yoga poses but nothing worked! Needless to say I had NO sleep! I can't wait until he comes out, it's so uncomfortable.
I know that comming early is not the best thing, but I just wish I could take him out for the night and then put them back in.

Sunday, April 03, 2005

Not Ready

I really don't feel like I am ready at all! We have so much stuff to do around the house, but I am so tired that I don't think I will ever get it done! At my last ultrasound the tech told me that his head is right on my cervix so he is more than ready to come out! (It couldn't be any sooner?!?!)I don't have placenta privia, so I will be having this baby naturally, god willing!!! As I get closer to the date I will do more journal entrys so that when I am post baby there is lots of stuff to read!

Sunday, March 27, 2005


I am not sleeping well at all. He moves way too much!! Now I can actually feel his elbows and knees and feet because he has no more room! I can't believe that he is going to grow more, I don't think my body can take it! I have a final exam on Saturday and really have to start studying but it is so hard when you are not focused on school what-so-ever. Don't the professors understand that I am having a baby??!? :)

Papa Ken

I had another prenatal appointment with Maura today, the student midwife Theresa was also there. Everything is still textbook. Maura thinks that I will deliver at 41 weeks. So that is still a little while to go!
I am having braxton hicks regularly and my back is just KILLING me! Today was especially hard as it was Christophers Grandfathers 90th birthday today and dinner was 4 hours long. Too long for a pregnant woman!!
We have to start getting out stuff together as the baby will be here in no time at all. Hospital stuff, labour stuff, baby stuff.
The save the date invites went out last week and I am just waiting on the invites from Tricia for the baby shower...then Voula and my mom and I can start planning.

Friday, March 18, 2005

Little By Little

Yesterday I had the biggest cramp right in my cervix. Maura (my midwife) told me that he is now head down and ready to go, so Toby (my other midwife) said that it is perfectly normal to feel some pressure or grating on my cervix as he gets ready to be born. I hope not too much more as that really hurt!
Chris is thinking about keeping a stray dog that he found at work and I am not sure how that will work with the family dynamic with only 8 weeks to go.
Im getting so excited but also soooo impatient because I am so uncomfortable all the time..
The baby shower is comming up so I can't wait for that, I miss being social with people. (And no one will be mad at me for talking about babies because it's a baby shower!!)

9 Weeks Left

Only 9 weeks to go. We finally got the baby furniture all set up. Chris had a wicked sore throat but he did it anyways! What a trooper! We had our prenatal with Maura who told me to stop weighing myself everyday and not to care about what people say about my size. (That Im too small, and therefore starving the baby). She wants me to drink this disgusting protien shake 3 times a day...(let's start with just one, shall we)...because I don't eat enough veggies. Other than that, the baby is perfect. Heartbeat at 140 and textbook in size.

Sunday, March 06, 2005

10 weeks left!!

Well only 10 weeks to go to my due date!! I am so excited and anxious and impatient all at the same time!!! I wish my furniture would just get here already. And I wish that he could be born, so I could hold him and play with him. I have been having wicked back pain and I had a massage to try and fix it, but alas, only made it bearable...69 days to go...

Thursday, March 03, 2005

Braxton Hicks

I can not believe the amount of Braxton Hicks that I have been having! They feel like a tightening all around my belly and then he kicks like mad. Which is a good thing, although it does hurt when he does it non stop.
We had our Birthing From Within class last night and talked about labour and what to do when I "lose it" and feel like I can't take it anymore. Hopefully it won't be that bad...sometimes people make it seem like labour is the worst thing in the world....if that was the case why would people do it in the first place? And why would a woman go though it more than once???

We are back from a long weekend at the Chateau at Lake Lousie! It was so relaxing! One of my best girlfriends, Tricia, has come to visit from Nelson. It was really nice to see her. It's also nice to talk to her because she has been through what I am going through! We chose his name during our trip but are not letting anyone know because we don't want to jinx it. He has been moving crazy and I am starting to get nauseous again...hopefully it won't be as bad as the first trimester.

This has been a very busy weekend!! On Friday we had our prenatal appointment with our Midwives. This time it was Toby. We talked about my low lying placenta and if I should have another ultrasound. We decided to wait until the 32 week to decide as it is not threatening to me or the baby. We also talked about cord blood banking which we have to make a decision on in less than 2 weeks as you are only eligible until the 30th week. Seems expensive right now but can you put a price on your child's life?
All that is left in the nursery is decorating it!! Thats the funnest part! Im getting so excited!!!!

Birthing From Within

We had our first childbirth education classes today. The are called Birthing From Within and take place at the Arbour Birth Center. Chris thinks that they are or may be a little to "frou frou" for him. Ie: granola. It was really interesting. We met some other couples going through the same thing that we are, so that was encouraging. Who knows? Maybe we just met some life long friends! :)

First Post

I can't believe how hungry I am! I am now into the third trimester and I can out-eat Chris no problem! I am eating at least 6 times a day! I wish that I had started this earlier but I have just been so tired, and busy.
Mr.Baby moves quite a bit so I know that everything is okay! I start my prenatal classes next week as well as a pregnancy massage! (I'm so spoiled I know it!)
