I got a haircut. This is right after I came home from the Bubbles Salon that Megan suggested. The girl blow dried and curled the layers around my face towards my face. But we all know I’ll never do that and it will end up looking like it does after it air dries. I like it.
Next, my appointment today. Good news (I guess) is that I’m Strep B negative. I’m about 1-2 cm dilated, which is normal. The doctor said sheepishly, “I don’t know, that feels suspiciously like a head down there.” So he got out the sonogram and confirmed that the head is still up up up. But, she’s moving around a lot more than last week, due in part to several things. 1)I’ve gone several times to a chiropractor/acupuncturist who has done the Webster technique and stimulated acu-points. Every time after I’ve gone, I’ve noticed movements from her in ways/places I haven’t felt before, so I believe it’s doing something. Supposedly, it loosens up areas in my uterus that had been too tight for her to get to. Average visits before a turn is 4-5. I’ve gone thrice. 2) I’ve been taking it easy and trying to be less uptight and controlling. 3) We’ve called on the Lord to put her in the right place. Not only that, but to make sure her cord is properly positioned so she can turn easily. The Lord is giving me peace that she will do exactly what she’s supposed to.
By the way, cottage cheese and raisins are a great snack. Did I say that in a previous post?
Next topic, house. Our offer on the Jefferson house has been accepted for 10K less than the asking price and the bank is paying closing costs, too! We are excited and nervous. This comes at a very busy time for us. So, after all the paperwork is faxed back and forth and the contract is actually ratified, we’ll have 2 days to do the loan app, 10 days to do all the appraisals and inspections, and something else. Oh, we have to get home insurance. Our closing date is Nov. 19. The challenge is that our apt. lease goes until Jan 31. We can leave if we give 2 months notice (move out Dec. 1) PLUS 2 months more rent. Does anyone see the problem here? 2 months more rent means paying through the end of Jan. So, I’m going to talk to the property manager today to see if something can be worked out for us. While the extra time to move would be nice to have, I don’t want to be stuck with paying a rent and a mortgage payment.
Here’s Teddy. Angelic and Weird, all in the same dog.
