Language again

Thanks so much for all of the helpful hints about strollers and preparations for the big event. Thanks especially to M-B for devoting a whole post to helping me out. You're the best! Mystery and I do LOVE the Xplory, especially the idea of having the baby up high, but they're over $1000 in Seoul, and that's just for the basic one without any of the fun accessories. If we decide to go for it, then we'll probably just buy it on our next trip to the US, which is scheduled for about 6 weeks after Eggbert is due. Is that completely insane?

In other news, yesterday I learned an important life lesson. As it turns out, it is not a good idea to let someone with whom you can't communicate at all cut your hair. My Korean really hasn't progressed much (or to be honest, at all) since I became pregnant, and as a result, I didn't have the vocabulary to truly describe what I wanted to the pleasant-faced woman holding the scissors in the salon yesterday. I thought that gestures should suffice, but as it turns out, either a) I'm not very good at charades, or b) she was annoyed and decided to punish me, because my head now looks very much like a Christmas tree. A big, frizzy Christmas tree. Not quite what I was hoping for.

On a happier note, I saw the doctor yesterday, and everything was fine. Eggbert's heart is still beating, my belly is the right size, my weight gain is right on target (her target, not mine, I didn't really want to gain those extra three pounds since three weeks ago), and my bp is still normal. I go back in two weeks for the FINAL ultrasound.

you need the bassinet for the first few weeks! You might be able to get it cheap on the internet. For example I found this:

Good luck with everything

Language barriers at the hair dressers do sound like a recipe for disaster. Hopefully the frizziness won't last too long.

Good to hear all is well with little Eggbert.

Oh Sara, I am so glad things are going well! The LAST ultrasound...what a milestone! And the will grow out eventually. :) You won't care very soon!
