Veggies and Water

We got to see our midwife today. It felt really good there. There were new sweet babies in the living room getting help with breastfeeding while we did our appointment in the clinic space. She made us try her mega water from her new machine and wants me to come fill up gallon jugs and drink it. I need to eat more protein and dark greens..... why is this so hard for me i wonder.
She lifted up my shirt to measure me and found a rainbow heart on my belly painted in face paints by Abby as a surprise for her. She laughed and laughed and took pictures then bent down and told the baby what a wonderful picture big sis had drawn, that she had given him/her a very nice house. She told some great birth stories of recent and how after 30+ years of delivering babies usually she can just tell how far along moms are but not always, that sometimes she is so totally humbled by it all. The birth journey......

Hey baby, I am your green woman. Expect some soon, as it appears the boys are taking charge of the situation...you are so loved, and doing such a good job as a shelter and safe harbor for the little one. I almost can't wait. (Seriously...ya know this to be true)
Yours, sister.
