Everything is Misc.

A stack of growing greens hemp diapers I found on crai.gslis.t. All clean and ready to be pooped on...
The ceiling fan that is part of my perpetual peripheral view.
New stroller. New car seat. Newly refinished floors covered with paper. A stack of lumber that will, this saturday, become the roomie's room.
Snack-time when the apples ran out. An awesome friend from grad school is sending 8 pounds of heirloom apples from the midwest via DHL! They should be here tomorrow. Just hope I will be here to get them. My mom is picking me up to take me back to the farm for the weekend so I am out of the boys hair while they build the room...
Having an easier go at it. I seem to have 3 day ups and downs. I am on an up right now. Hoping I can hold on to it. Friday will be sweet. The "cheaters" 30 week mark. Some of my docs turn me on friday, othrs on staurday. But I use friday cuz it makes me feel good.

Keep up the great work. All I can say is that few people truly understand what a miracle their child is - but you will - you will fully understand and be so grateful. There is hardly a day that I look at my 3 year old son and think - how grateful I am to this world that he's mine... but also the feeling that I "earned" him. There is no fairness in fertility or pregnancy - so much is about luck too... but you will have earned your good fortune of a healthy baby when the time comes - hopefully not for several weeks yet.

Oh the room is going to be so awesome, please keep posting more pix.

I cant believe you are going to be 30 weeks already! You are awesome, lady.

Can I smoke the diapers? Oh, wait, nevermind.

Girl you have a car seat and a stroller?!?!?! And cloth diapers - you rock - for real. I had no idea that they made diapers of hemp. You taught me something new. Also - the room is going to be awesome, I can't wait to see more pictures :-) I hope you are home to get your apples, they are so good this time of year. You deserve nothing but a great weekend, a smooth contraction free car ride to your moms, and a celebration for making it to 30 wks!

Oh yeah - good point about the 3 days up and down. I'm not sure what's up with that....but isn't that the truth? It's like the last couple of days I've felt good about things again, but the few before that - well...you know how I felt.

Wow- 30 weeks already! (I know it definitely doesn't feel like already to you)

Congrats on getting so much done while horizontal! It's a nice little stack of things started! The stroller looks really cute & I can't wait to see the Roomie's room!

Oh, yes indeed. Good days and bad days. You said it- bedrest IS hard. It's the hardest thing I ever did, and that includes finishing my PhD in the worst lab ever.

30 weeks!!! Wahoo!!

What an eco-aware mommy you are going to be! :) I too would love to see more pictures of the room in its finished state. I'm sure it will be adorable.

Enjoy your time at the farm this weekend. You deserve a peaceful change of scenery. (Not that I don't love the ceiling fan!)*hugs*
