Baby update

I went to the midwives today and I gained about 5 pounds in the past two weeks. Wahoo! The midwives have been encouraging me to gain more weight, so I'm grateful the holidays came at this time. Eating has never been a favorite thing of mine while pregnant. My palate is too picky. I am measuring about 3 cm small though, so we get to have another ultrasound to see how big the baby is. I told Jonas that we could find out the gender of the baby if we wanted, but we decided against it. It wasn't a temptation really. After waiting all this time just to cave in now. I think I'd be disappointed to find out the gender now.

I have plenty of little projects to keep me busy until the baby arrives, the first being to sew!!!! I got a sewing machine for Christmas, and I'm very excited to use it. I can't sew in a straight line yet, but I'm sure that will come eventually.

Happy New Year to all! My New Year's resolution is to find and focus on the good in people, and to serve them more. I'm much too apt to criticize, and I figure that serving them will help me to love them. I'm just going with the one resolution in the hopes that it will keep me focused. Care to share a resolution of yours?

My resolution is to have better relationships with my family members. Including Fetus.

You are getting so close! You also measured small with Kjersten, didn't you? I can't really relate to the not liking to eat but way to go on the extra 5 pounds! I think it is time for another belly shot. You are way strong to not find out the gender. Best wishes- I hope you know I'm going to start checking every day in case your baby comes early. :) Best wishes.
