Thanks for the comments and well wishes on my earlier post. It’s very sweet.
Apparently, membrane stripping isn’t too painful when the baby’s head is really low. It wasn’t much more than brief discomfort. Still no labor. The doctor said that Junior’s head is at -2. I don’t know what that means, but his head is low. He also said that I’m more effaced, and while I’m still a “2″, he can stretch me to a “3″.
The internet came up, and went down, and came up again at the house this evening, so I’m taking the opportunity to post some pictures now, as I don’t know how reliable our DSL is going to be for awhile.
Oh, and to fill you in, instead of the houses closing on Monday and Tuesday of last week like they were supposed to, they closed on Thursday and Friday. I’m relieved it’s all done now, and grateful we were able to get in on Tuesday night.
We’ve been busy. Painting, drilling, unpacking, rearranging, buying stuff, etc. Our main priority was the living room area upstairs. Want to see why?
Yes, those are 8 foot painted diamonds. And on the other side of the room…
There are a lot of funky, diagonal things going on in the main living area upstairs. Those two were the most critical. The diamonds are gone, no picture yet, and the diagonal is mostly gone.
It would be ALL gone, but we didn’t have white primer, only orange for the diamonds. If you stand right in front of the wall where the diagonal was, you can still see a little bit of the gray peeking through. But not much. We might leave it because by the time we’re done doing what we’re going to do to that wall, it won’t be detectable at all, and it’s pretty obvious that it won’t get any better without primer.
That’s Nate and my mother-in-law tackling the job. Oooh, and you even get a little peek at some of the new furniture!
I don’t have a good, 9-months-pregnant picture for posterity yet, but Veronica took one of me on the couch this afternoon. It’s too dark, because I’m in front of large windows, but you can still see the big belly!
I think it’s kind of cute.
