Join Me For Another 10 Weeks! This is the first week of ten weeks starting October 22, 2012

Hi folks! I'm at it again. I'm going for another 20 pound loss in ten weeks. I've recently had another baby, a little girl, she is now five months old and I'm ready to drop some weight.

Hello friends!

I made it to the library finally. And then after being absent for two weeks I came here to find out that the whole blogging scene has changed.Supposedly it's suppose to be better, but I'm feeling a little annoyed. Hmmm....

And the only reason I'm spending some time at the library here today is that some last minute internet things need to get taken care of before this baby comes.

Well, I have seven days before I'm due. Last Friday when they checked me, I was dilated to one and 75% effaced, where the week before that I was completely closed. I will say that the last few days I have had more frequent and perhaps slightly harder contractions. I have felt more tired than normal this last week or so. I do believe this baby won't come for another week. But starting next Friday the 4th of May I have to be ready for anything. I did get this wild-haired idea to start calling friends and family later this week just to say "hi" knowing full well that they would think I was calling to say I'd had the baby. But wouldn't it be funny to just get them all excited for a minute or two? I told my mom that and she said that I must have my dad's sense of humor.

I hit two garage sales nearby this weekend and was able to practically complete getting the clothes I need for this baby girl. Just love all this cute baby girl stuff. See, here's a bargain idea that Sunshine Mama has discovered for getting awesome garage sale deals. If someone has a lot of baby stuff that you want, but they are charging too much....go back... right when they are about to be done and offer to take most of it off their hands for say $5 a bag. Most of the time they will deal with you because they are intending on giving it all to Goodwill anyway. And, yes, that is what I did with one of the garage sales.

I also have a few more things to do yet to be completely ready for pack my bag, go grocery shopping, do a little more cleaning of the house, draw up a list of the homeschooling curricula that I need to get.

I will also have about one more week before saying goodbye to Dove Chocolate covered caramels, because after I get home from the hospital, I need to get moving and a groovin and droppin some baby weight.

Well, I do appreciate all of your comments and interest despite my sporadic postings. Not having internet at home has certainly put a damper on some of my creativity with posting pictures and spontaneous posts. But on the other hand, being a homeschooling mom of soon-to-be seven children, I have more time to take care of them.  Anyway, I miss it.

I'll try to post one more time before baby comes. If not, I'll talk to you later!

Baby Has Moved!!!

Hello and Happy Easter!

I'm at my parents' and they have Internet so, I'd thought I'd share some good news.

I visited the midwife on Friday and she said the baby has moved from being in a breach position to a head down position and and head facing backward position, which is the perfect position. She told me a few movements to do to keep the baby in the right position until labor. I am feeling very relieved. I will now be meeting with a midwife every week until the baby comes. I have officially four weeks until I'm due on Sunday, May 6.

Thank you for your comments and encouragement. I will try to post again after my appointment this Friday to keep you updated.

I will add that I'm beginning to swing into "operation baby preparation" mode. I actually enjoy it.

Talk later!
