Mid wife appt update:
Everything is looking great! blood pressure is great, urine is clean, vaginal ph is good.
AND Olivia is HEAD DOWN like I thought! her head is engaged deep in my pelvis! so shes in perfect position, my mid wife thinks since her head is so deep & engaged shes not flipping any more YAY I sure hope so! she deffo hasnt been flipping in a while I noticed. Mid wife also remarked she thinks Olivia is pretty big, it was super easy for her to figure out the position. Olivias heart was beating a 165 BPM and she was sure to show the mid wife some of her cool moves! :p I now see my mid wife every 2 weeks and Friday the 27th we are going for our hospital registration to discuss our birth plan and we will see olivia in a ultrasound! so exciting! getting close! also i have gained 25 pounds so far. mid wife says im looking great and will probably gain another 5 before shes born which is good 😀

Anything making you queasy or sick: NOPE
Gender: GIRL
 Symptoms: Well there’s quite a few actually! Firstly I have started experiencing some lower back pain. It is not constant but if I am out in town a long time it will ache a bit.  I have been doing lots of pelvic tucks and using my birthing ball loads to help with the back pain, but its really not that bad or all that often. Iv been alot more snappy especially when I am uncomfortable I get irritated easily.  Braxton Hicks. My braxton hicks contractions have been a little more frequent I get them anywhere from 5 to 7 times everyday all at random times. I also am experiencing a little bit more pressure on my pelvis but its only sometimes.

 Best Moment of the week? Going Blueberry picking was amazing. There is this little place about a 25 minute walk from our house in the fields where you can go blueberry picking and there is a little mini farm where you can buy cakes and there are beds to eat outside and pigs and goats and a corn maze. Its amazing I will have to film a video there. I cant wait to bring Olivia one day!
Looking Forward to: I have got lots to look forward too! I am looking forward to my midwife’s appt this wednesday! I love seeing her and Im eager to know what position olivia is in. Also our stroller could be here any day now, we ordered it a month ago and they said it could arrive 4 to 6 weeks after we purchased it so hopefully SOON! I am also looking forward to getting the nursery done!

Organic food shopping spree!

Today I went to my local organic store literally a 5 min walk from my house and picked up some things according to the meal plan I made for this week. 🙂 I ended up getting a couple of unexpected things that we dont usually purchase on a regular basis that is why the bill is higher than usual.

I really dont feel buying organic (especially produce) is more expensive than mainstream or at least thats the way it is in Germany. I also must add being a vegetarian is a HUGE money saver! In America I remember going to Foodsco which is awful to think of now, its like walmart but less well known and its only a grocery store.  We spent aprox 65 dollars everytime we went in there and usually got no more than 20 items and that would USUALLY not always be our only trip there in one week. Now I go to my cute little organic shop and buy primarily fruits and veggies and spend way less and get more for my money! Like I said the shopping spree from today was for sure a SPREE! 😉

Heres what I got:

6 red bell peppers

natural yogurt

organic herbed cheese

whole wheat freshly baked bread

pure maple syrup (huge amount of the cost) 7 Euros!

dozen local free roam FARM RAISED eggs

1 leter local farm raised goats milk

2 leters local farm raised cows milk

fresh coriander aka cilantro (also not a  usually bought item)

1 eggplant

head of broccoli

pinto beans (non canned, also not bought regularly)

tomato sauce (I usually make my own)

1 large Leek

Total 30 euros.

I usually spend no more than 15 euros per visit and I go twice a week. that sums up to about 30-40 dollars on organic local nutritious goodies every week! thats awesome compared to that processed crap I bought for 65 dollars in a mainstream american supermarket.

Go organic people! you know u want too!
