today's check up

Ah... the luxury of the midwifery model of care... I was able to bring a friend with Kev and me to our appointment today. And she was able to ask all sorts of questions about midwifery and still I received far more attention than I ever did with my previous caregiver. This model allows such a greater generosity of time.

I gained another five pounds in the last two weeks, I'm on the cusp of 200.

My blood pressure was normal.

The baby's heart rate was 150.

And I'm measuring right on target.

And the baby was head down today... I thought maybe that was a head pressing on my bladder!

Oh, and I keep forgetting to ask you: what exactly is the story behind your blog's address? Did I miss it somewhere?
