Just a quick note so say that growing a baby has continued to be a complete joy for both David and me. The baby is now considered "full term" which means it could come any day now! Or, it could be another 4 weeks...we are quite happy to welcome our little beloved one whenever he/she is ready to come. We are all tucked in to a cottage on a mountain for the birth and I have been feeling myself falling deeper and deeper into the magic of it all.
Baby is in a good position (head down), my blood pressure is good, my urine is good, my iron is good (I am really excited about this one...my iron has only dropped about 7 points and is still in a good range. Many women during pregnancy will see a 30-40 point drop in their iron causing anemia. Hooray for nettles and lots of leafy greens!), and I was just tested for GBS and tested clear of it (happy about this too as it means I won't even have to consider taking antibiotics during labor, which is what the medical world would have me do if I did have GBS. Hooray for lots of top quality probiotics and good bacteria!) We are all very happy and I am very excited about the nearing birth day!
We are very much looking forward now to meeting this beautiful being who rolls and dances away in my belly.
Here are a few growing bliss ball photos:
(I've created a pregnancy photo album on our Flickr account too, which you can see HERE.)
With peaceful steps and many blessings,
Katrina, David, and baby in the belly.
