Good morning! Sorry about the lack of a Make and Do post this morning. I usually write them the night before, but last night I was blissed out at Rebecca's massage clinic and had tapioca for brains when I got home. I just poured myself into some PJs and fell blissfully asleep; here's a visual below to give you an idea of just how relaxed I was:) She totally worked me over with all her late pregnancy tricks; clary sage essential oil, various acupressure and reflexology points etc. I'm amazed at how she can find the exact perfect spot, and also at how sore these random little spots can be. I could tell when she'd found one for sure! And she's so good about working on a spot until it's really done. So often I'll get a massage and the person moves onto the next spot before they've really worked out the soreness in the first one; they just stick with their routine. But Rebecca's really intuitive and her massages are amazing!
Tomorrow morning I'm heading in to our midwife's and we're going to try sweeping the membranes and taking some black and blue cohosh to get things started. Monday will be 42 weeks and after that UT law says a licensed midwife can't attend you at home. But, with Rebecca's fantastic massage and a bit of help from the cohosh, I think we'll be able to have a little birthday party this weekend.
