We had our 24 week appt yesterday with the midwife...only to find out that I gained much more weight last month than I usually do.....oops. I usually gain 2-4 lbs, but DOUBLED that! I haven't changed my eating pattern (besides conv.) too much, so maybe baby had a little growth spurt, and I have to take the blame. ;) He sure is gettin bigger..cause I feel him kicking all the time!!
Convention was so good, and I wish that we could go back again this week. I think it was Harold Hilton who shared this...but either way...it's saved me a lot this week! There was a little girl, with a couple big brothers, making her quite a little spitfire, and pretty tough. Another schoolmate told her one day, "I don't like your face." Well this little girl just kindly looked at her and said, " Well.. I like your face."
He was mentioning the things that gave us peace...and kindness being one of them. So...I just kept saying "Well...I like your face" over and over in my head when I had to work with a very difficult person right away Monday morning.
Im just waiting by my phone, for a call from Anna saying they're on their way to the birth center...as I will be little Ella's "helper" at the birth of their 3rd! Im very excited to not only help Ella with this experience, but witness it myself. It will make me stronger, and get me ready for our own natural birth!! So...I have a bag packed in case the call comes in the middle of the night...:)
