We back on the blog! So, pregnancy update: everything is going great! No problems or hiccups. Well, there have probably been some hiccups, but I can’t tell a punch from a headbutt. All I know is this little baby is a mover. I see her kicking and flipping all the time. Little bumps on my stomach!
Here’s my 20 weeks picture:
Let’s see… Ryan is making a lot of progress on his project, the toy box. He’s painting it in a fantasy theme, and it is quite fantastic!:
I made some progress on the mobile I’m putting together, the bunnies are completed, and we have the dowels to put it all together. I’ll need Ryan’s engineering expertise to get it just right.
Ryan and I made our down payment for our hypnobirthing class, and I’ve been listening to my new rainbow relaxation CD. It seems to be embedding in my brain; the other night I had a dream that I had the perfect hypnobirth and I kept repeating the hypnobirthing affirmations to myself–ha ha
I know a lot of you don’t know much, or anything about hypnobirthing, so I found a video of a woman using the technique during her natural home-birth. The last three minutes are the craziest (No worries, you don’t see any lady parts)
This next video doesn’t have any lady parts either, and it gives examples of early contractions, transition labor, and the actual birth. I think what I love most about these videos is how alert the enlivened the mothers seem after the process.
And finally some pictures! These ultrasound pics are from the 18th week!
