A small (large) update

Currently I am 36 weeks pregnant, 37 on Thursday. My midwife (independent, with 25 years experience, who knows what she's doing) said on Friday that he is already over 8lb. That, I imagine, has the potential to smart. (It'll be interesting to see the comments, if any, to this post. Over the last 8 or so months, people have been dividing themselves neatly into the reassuring - for instance, 'Weight doesn't matter, it's the head circumference that counts' - to those who seem almost gleeful about my possible discomfort and pain, and/or are keen to relive their own experiences. I don't mind which type you are, since everyone's different: comments, kind or less so, have very little bearing on what I'll experience myself - so comment away!)


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
