Our moving plans are slowly falling into place. And by "falling into place" I mean that we still have no idea where we'll live in a week and a half.
BUT we have decided to leave a couple of days earlier so we can find a place. We've officially changed the truck reservation and are already packing. We're just doing a few boxes every day, but we don't have all that much. We've packed up our books, my yarn, food storage, cloth diapers, the bathroom stuff (minus things like toothbrushes, of course), and Margaret's baby clothes. Today my sights are set on the rest of my craft things, which is really not much. I still need to go through the kitchen and pantry.
It's also surprisingly hard to get rid of a partially-working stereo. It works a lot of the time and probably just has a loose wire, but no one on Freecycle will take it. There are also a few bags of stuff by the door for DI and various friends. I'm giving up on Freecycling it all because we've had a lot of no shows this past week.
As far as the pregnancy goes, I'm carrying this baby pretty low. In fact, there is about an inch and a half of fundal height that is completely unused by the baby. The baby is vertical and is comfortable on the right side. Based on early fundal measurements, the placenta is on the left, and based on the fact that I can't hear it, it's on the back. Having the baby on the right side can mean posterior, so I need to watch that. I don't feel very inclined to reposition the baby at this point, but I would like a birth without back labor.That was seriously the worst part of my labor, but once Margaret was in a good position, she was out in 4 hours and I felt in control from that point on. I'm hoping I can skip the back labor and go straight into the "I'm in control and this baby is coming out" stage.
So this next week or so will be cleaning and packing and trying to figure out all the semantics of moving. Meanwhile, here's my little girl:
