36 weeks pregnant. (Look at my belly button mark through my shirt! I am happy I still have an innie. Never got an outie during my pregnancy with Sean too). Wow, 9 full months pregnant. (Technically pregnancy is 10 months. 40 weeks divided by 4 weeks per month (on average) = 10 months....) Next week, I'm considered full term at 37 weeks. And I'm going to be doing everything possible to induce labor! Raspberry Leaf Tea, something about brownies, spicy food, long walks, and a ton of other ways too.... Must get Mackenzie out..... I'm soooooo uncomfortable now, to the point that I'm not even sleeping properly anymore....
This morning I had an OB appointment, and from now on until I deliver, I'll be going weekly. Every Monday morning. Next Monday happens to be my birthday, so that should be interesting. Sean has his 18 month check-up next Monday as well (getting his last set of shots for a while). Doctor's assessment is that Mackenzie has dropped and is on his way down, but my cervix is still
I have a question in regards to anyone who has any vegetable gardening knowledge. I have no idea when to pick my peas (Lincoln/Homesteader) or my beans (Stringless Green Pod). For the peas, it reads: "Successive sowing may be made every two weeks until early summer." Does that mean that every 2 weeks they are ready for picking to eat? It gives me no other information about maturity (like my radishes tell me on the package "Maturity: 24-28 days". And for the beans, it reads: "Cultivate shallow and often until blossoms appear. Avoid working among the plants or picking while foliage is damp." I'm not really sure when to pick them for eating...? Anyone have any insight on them?
I planted two of the three tomato plants tonight, the Cherry Tomato and the Beefsteak tomato plants. I'm so excited for them to start producing vegetables!
I had all intentions to make meat sauce today, but it didn't work out. I ran some errands this afternoon while my mom and sister had some fun chilling with Sean. I have my mother-in-law coming over tomorrow to help me with the meat sauce (and meat balls). I'm missing two ingredients (which I didn't realize), so I'll be going out in the morning to get them.
I've been working all evening on the June sock club kit stitch markers. These ones are really hard on my nails. I can't wait to get the June sock kit in the mail. They will also be ready for Montreal pick-up very soon. (Wednesday and after). The July Club kits are selling, and I am so very excited about them, since they are the last one before the sock club goes on a mini-vacation pending Mackenzie's arrival.
I missed 2 packages from the postman today, and he usually leaves that kind of mail on my door stop. I'm curious as to what I missed, but I can't go pick them up until after 1pm tomorrow. I will try on my way home from my morning errands, I'm very curious as to what I am receiving, as there is a ton of stuff I'm still expecting in the mail including some swap packages and some stuff I ordered. Oh, I heart mail.
