Books about libraries/librarians

Please email me m at mywhine.com to recommend books for both children and adults that have a theme around libraries, librarians or books. I've been slowly collecting a bunch for Jeli but mostly for me :)

Stress is Mounting

I need prayers and good thoughts. Trying to get into a really good OB group that delivers at a really good hospital. Been stressed trying to get the process of transition from my current group and praying that insurance covers everything.

Keeping up with 18 year olds

I've started going back to the gym on top of my pre-natal exercise class. Yesterday was a doozie, there were lots of young guys working out and I didn't even feel intimidated while working out. I felt like I could keep up with some slight modification. I didn't even feel sore when I woke up today. I guess I'm not so out of shape. I hope I can keep that kind of endurance when in labor!

A little stressed out since I've decided to switch OBs at 29 weeks. I really want to have a doula during delivery and the group I'm with have a policy of not working with doulas. It's quite strange since there are many good reasons to have one present. I know many women out there have had deliveries without one, but reading as much as I have recently I feel it would be beneficial for me, J and the baby.

I have a prayer request for my girlfriend who had her baby at 31 weeks gestation last week. Her baby was originally due just about 2 weeks before me. The baby girl is doing well and progressing quickly in NICU, but I figured more prayers for them will keep them moving along.

Future Gymnast

Yes it is past 2am. I am awake. Very tired. However Baby Jeli seems to be practicing for the 2008 Olympics with all the sumersaults and tumbles she has been doing the past 2 hours. Of course it didn't help that I had frozen yogurt around 9pm. This is frustrating but I guess I will have to get used to these late night activities.

This is my kind of summer camp

A really fun article about how someone put together a summer camp for kids with the theme of day spas.

Hip Maternity Clothes

Don't limit yourself to maternity stores. Current fashions really are generous in cut for mothers to be. Some great finds recently have been H&M as well as Forever 21 in San Francisco. I would also recommend that you don't buy too many pieces at one time. You definitely grow in ways you'd never expect. Also don't get rid of pieces too quickly since after the baby is born in most cases you really can't get back into pre-preg clothes. Some women have been recommending I hold on to 2nd trimester clothes since those would be the most comfortable right after having a baby. However depending on the style and if you breastfeed, 2nd tri clothes could be a challenge.

I'm at 27 weeks and back working out in the gym including a pre-natal exercise class. I'm still doing consulting and a myriad of other activities. The baby has definitely setup a wake/sleep pattern and will need to document and compare for when she is born.

Been very tired after hosting 2 weeks of cousins from IL on top of writing an article for Boxes and Arrows and doing a couple projects. Just selling stuff to clear up space for the baby room and getting excited to start assembling the crib and other baby furniture. I've been tempted to buy the really good stuff but I also know that if they get scratched or damaged I'd be very upset. So trying to stay within a budget and surfing Craigstlist.
