Lizard update  
I can't remember how much of this I've already said, so you all get to deal with it.

Eight days ago now, we had an early labor scare. After rushing to the acupuncturist, getting the midwife up and applying various herbs, we got past it, but the lovely wife is now on bedrest and not allowed to lift anything, even light things. So far, bedrest is working really well.

We need at least another week or so for the lizard to be sufficiently cooked, and possibly up to two more weeks. The kid's of reasonable but not exceptional size, and the midwife would strongly prefer a child of at least six pounds for confidence in a safe homebirth.

So we're waiting and attempting to keep Krissy from having to make any physical exertion. So far, so good.

Wishing Krissy many engrossing books during what must be rather boring bedrest, and may they make up for the difficulty she might have finding time to read after your baby is here!
"Lizard" is one of my favorite nicknames for my Lizzie. :)

She's doing some reading, but mostly people brought over a lot of movies.

I think its awesome that at no point in this emergency did the phrase "doctor" or "hospital" occur.

The emergency was primarily to avoid exactly those phrases :-)

you may wish to ask about injections
that help the kid's lungs develop faster.

saved my kids lives,
in retrospect.

they came out at 27 weeks.
