Welcome to the world, Arwen Guinevere!! You made your appearance at 6:55am today, covered in vernix
,so it is obvious that you were not "OVERDUE" !!!.. even though you were 10 lbs, 4 oz!! woohoo!
The mainstream medical establishment isn't always right. Her first "due" date was Sept. 18th, but then they did an ultrasound and changed it. It sickens me to think of how many babies are forced into this world before they're ready..
by the way, my SIL did not tear or rip, even though her baby was so big! Midwives and gentle birth and water birth can prevent so much!
I haven't seen her yet. I will probably see her on Sunday... my son's 15th birthday is tomorrow and we have a ton of band stuff this weekend... so Sunday will be the first day we can make it.. plus, I think they will want to rest. They were up all night! I can't wait to hold her and see her and smell her.. and of course, I will post pics.
*note to self*
"Self, buy more memory for the camera."
It is anticlimactic to blog about food.. but I will.
I made a marinara with veggies and tvp and served it over whole wheat pasta with a dollop of basil tofu "ricotta" from VwaV.. but I also used some leftover Kale from the day...
I also steamed cauliflower and broccoli to go along with the dish. For dessert, I made a smoothie with soymilk, frozen banana, cocoa powder, stevia and coconut extract. Very good. No pic of the smoothie though.
I can't wait to hold my neice!!
