"Giving birth is an ecstatic jubilant adventure not available to males.

It is a woman's crowning creative experience of a lifetime." ~ Dr. John Stevenson

40 Weeks 1 day

I think I look full term now! I'm still feeling pretty good. This picture is taken in the canyon where I take my morning walks while listening to my Joyful Pregnancy and Birth affirmations on my IPod. Doing those two things about 5 days a week has been such an incredibly wonderful and positive thing for this pregnancy!
