Ralph sounds much better this morning. I'll keep up the breathing treatments every 6 hours for now. I can not yet hear good movement of air in his lungs. He looks sick, too. He has the dark circles under his eyes, yet his blood oxygen levels are good. I'll have to wait and see.

I visited my midwife this morning. I'm 34 weeks and 1 day. Baby sounds good and measures perfect. Our plan is for the baby to be born at the Birth Inn! This is a little house that my midwife has set up for out of town guests and such. One room is a master bedroom sized birthing room, complete with a hot tub! I would prefer to be at home, but it is the next best thing. Kathy's concern is that our house is a little too far away from a hospital for her comfort. So we compromise.

I'll be having another ultrasound on Friday the 13th. Now, you all know that I'm NOT superstitious, right? We will get another real close look at this babe before she comes. Can't wait!

I'm glad Ralph is better and hope you continue to see great improvment!

I'm glad his sats are good, but I hope to read he is even more better soon.

Cool birthing set-up you have. I read a beautiful birth post not long ago - in the mother's home with a midwife.

If you want the url, let me know. Barbara
