All cake is good…

on September 17, 2005

Very amused by yesterday’s comments about Christmas cake. You probably still won’t like this one then. It’s ok but a bit dry, and not as heavy as standard Christmas cake. I think I agree with prof_vector (if it can’t be the real thing that is) then it should be chocolate. 🙂

The baby is very well. I got a French-speaking midwife this time – yay! – so understood much more than I would have with German. She was really nice, it’d be nice to have her for the birth but she’s a independent midwife so it’s unlikely. I’ll probably get one of the hospital ones. Anyway she monitored the baby’s heartbeat for about half an hour, which was really cool because you could see the graph it was making and how it’s heart went faster when it moved, and she said it definitely looked like a boy from the shape of the graph. Apparently boy-heartbeats tend to increase in speed very suddenly and then drop again suddenly, whereas girls increase gradually and then decrease again gradually. Much more genteel. 😉
So he’s fine and everything else is fine although I don’t seem to have put on any weight in the last two weeks. and he might come this weekend because it’s full moon. The midwife says research shows no link between the full moon and births, but her experience is that often the wards are more busy at full moon especially if the weather is changing – which it is. So maybe tomorrow will be the day. 🙂
