Keeping Busy

We have been bad bloggers lately. Since our last post we have had a shower and a check up on Bit. I will start with the shower that was hosted by our friends in Austin. It was great to see all our friends and my Aunt Kathy was able to come from out of town. It was very nice. Melissa’s mom and sister surprised us with gifts ordered via Calgary. It was a pleasant surprise to have gifts from them included in our shower. We have enough blankets to keep an army warm and many onesies made by our friends at the shower. The onesies were our favorite gift because it was so personal. Both of us hated opening all the gifts in front of everyone but we survived. One shower down and 3 more left to go.




On Wednesday, we had another midwife appointment. It was a big one because we were going to find out if Bit had flipped and take the test to check for gestational diabetes. Because we are doing a home birth Melissa wasn’t required to drink the nasty mixture we have heard about. She had to have a breakfast of 1 egg, 3 pieces of bacon, pancakes with syrup, and a glass of orange juice. The results are in, the good news is no diabetes, and bad news is that she has low iron levels and is anemic. So we just have to add another vitamin to the mix Floradix.

During our appointment we discusses ways to get Bit to flip including propping an ironing board on the side of our bed and having Melissa hang upside down three times a day. We had a plan for our next appointment we needed to have Melissa drink a big glass of wine to relax so they would move Bit around. However, we discovered during the appointment that Bit has actually flipped! We were so excited even though Melissa was looking forward to drinking a glass of wine.

We are down to the wire and now we have to have our appointments every two weeks. I know that with the holidays it is going to fly by quickly.

Yea! Glad Bit flipped.

Most pregnant women are blood deficient. I'm on the floradix too. Not too bad when I can remember to take it! Hope you notice a difference soon.

The onsies are such a great shower idea. I may steal that one.
