Public Mortification

March 27, 2012

At the risk of regretting this already, the much sought-after evidence from last Friday’s hippie dippy henna session. Ask me how much fun my Lutheran doula had tracing the back of a miraculous medal on my 9 month pregnant belly…the answer is: lots.

(note: henna is black when applied in paste form, but after the ‘crust’ – for lack of a better term – peels off, the result is a lovely rich reddish brown stain that lasts for 1-3 weeks. So, here’s hoping my medical team has something even more interesting to feast their eyes on in the delivery room than the status quo)

    She did a great job. Will you please update how your medical team reacts? Just out of curiosity. 😉

    I heart.

    so many baby/preg posts today —

    heart.

    and yes please update us on what the docs say — before you go about revealing any names or gender — this shall take the cake.

    kidding, kind of.
