    Hi. Did the walking help with the birth? She wants a completely natural delivery-no epidural-no drugs- if her body does not get more ready she is going to have a rougher time.
    I was high risk too-hypertension & somewhat old for a first pregnancy (almost 37). I did not have gestational diabetes but about 7 years later, I developed full blown diabetes and have been on insulin for 25 years. Alex does not have any swelling & pees every 5 minutes so I guess her kidneys are working great. Her bp is almost too low but it nearly always has been low. She had gained some weight before the pregnancy but at 37 weeks, she is about 160 lbs so that is not so bad. It looks like it's "all baby". Her Doula tried to feel the baby but her abdomen is very firm. Taryn says from what she can feel, he will be a good sized baby so I hope he does not go over by too much. I hope he will be a happy baby in this houseful of women. Valentin, my husband, refuses to talk about the baby at all but that is Russian tradition. They think it is a bad omen to talk about the baby before he is born or even to buy presents for him. I am hoping he will be a good Grandpapa to him when he is born. If not, I may not be a wife to him any more. [/quote]

    I've got that skillet handy; just holler if you need it. [/quote]

    Well, thank you Bobbi. Have some croissants & coffee.[/quote]

    Don't mind if I do, thank you! Why is croissants not pronounced 'in the French' in this country. Why is it CREW-SONTS? We pronounce other French words as intended: champagne is not SHAM-PAG-KNEE, for example. Oh well. Also I think they are meant to be eaten as is, without any butter or other adornments; if made properly, they are heavenly just as they are.
    Well this is a fine mess.[/quote]

    I don't know, Bobbi. Maybe it is regional. I do not always say Kwah-san but I sometimes compromise & say cra-sant. We English speakers have butchered a lot of French words: Val-ett has become accepted over val-ay, via over vee-ah. Thank Heavens champagne is not one of them. lol

    Yes Bobbi, have a croissant. All that skillet swinging on an empty stomach just can't be good for you.

    Lets sit here and enjoy a leisurely snack then I'll HELP you make a believer of Mr V. We will just tell him in a very kind way to either shape up or his ass is OURS.


    Alright Lucy, we'll try it your way. But I'm putting the skillet in the 'ready' mode, just in case. I forgot, we grew up in the 'make-love-not-war' generation.

    Hey Lucy. Good idea. (He might like that. ) He has not got much attention from women lately. He came home with a huge gift basket of goodies, including a large bottle of raspberry Absolut, from Christmas at his ex's, but apparently she cut him loose for New Year's which is really a bigger holiday for them than Christmas. (I don't care any more. I wish she would take him back).

    Is it one of those big, black iron jobs? I have three of those that belonged to my grandmother. Talk about heavy! You could do some serious damage with any one of them.

    Blue, walking really is good during those last weeks and months. My daughter in law and I walked the park on her street twice a day during the last weeks of her pregnancy. She was in early labor for many hours and we walked that park a lot. It was in July. One day she almost got too hot and a family having a picnic insisted we come in their pavilion and the elderly grandmother took over. She pulled out washcloths and wet them then put them around Sam's neck, gave her ice water to drink and clucked over her like a mother hen. We didn't have the heart to tell her that we only had to walk about three houses down to get back home. The next day the baby was born.

    A great story to record.Since I started this ancestry search,I have also recorded stories told to me as a third party and they have taken on special meaning.


    Yes, I go with her to everything now. I need a refresher course in infant care too.


    It will all come back in an instant,as a grandmother of eleven I can assure you of that.

    I actually had to get rid of my skillet years ago. I could never figure out how to clean it. I wanted to scour it with an SOS pad, and my neighbor said to just wipe it out. (Just wipe it out? I don't think so.) So I got rid of it. My neighbor was born and raised in Germany, and taught me some German every day. She told me the story of the skillet: she said her mother gave her the 'spider' and told her to tell her husband "if you ever hurt me, you should not sleep". I guess something got lost in the translation, but I got the drift.

    I have 3 of them & a Dutch oven with lid but I was never taught the art of warfare with them. I learned a lot from my next door neighbor though. Her very silly husband tried to beat her up & she stabbed him with the scissors. He was a dangerous man & very mean when drunk. I have told this story before but he cut up a young Marine a third of his age for hitting him in the head with a brake pedal & gashing his face & head. I forget how many stitches it took to put that young man back together but he sure asked for it. Old Cy was well into his 70's but had not forgot how to wield a hawkbill knife & he kept it whetted so it was razor sharp. Rough folk. Daddy had to take a friend to the nearest doctor & get his ear sewn back on one time. (You don't need to carry a knife if you have sharp teeth & your opponent is not armed). Salt of the Earth though. You have a death in the family-they are right there with the fried chicken & biscuits-you need a liver transplant & they are sneaking wads of 100 dollar bills into your pockets-the game warden shoots & kills your son, they get up a posse of vigilantes to hang him if they can. (They did not get him-he had been transferred to a jail somewhere way off & was eventually acquitted by a jury who ruled it was self defense. The man he killed was brandishing a pistol & was a former deputy himself. But dayum. Losing your life over a boatful of shrimp. The good Lord makes more shrimp. Those conservation officers WERE a sorry lot though). One of them harrassed the son of one of the County Commissioners for a long time. She finally got extra copies of the permit and plastered them all over his boat and told the jerk one more time & she was reporting him to his superior.
    My brother comes to the shore once or twice a year to get a few oysters in the winter & crabs & clams in the summer & nearly every time he gets his little bucket of goodies inspected in case he has one too small. How much damage could you do with a dipnet & a peck bucket? And yet they let people drive into the salt marsh & tear it up and that is the breeding ground for a lot of kinds of seafood. And our people lived in that county for nearly 300 years. And still pay property taxes out the ying yang
    One of the times, his wife asked "Why didn't you tell them you were from here? Wouldn't that have made a difference?" My brother said "Hell, no, if he had known I was from here, he would have drawn his pistol".

    Mama calls it a spider too. We have some German ancestry but I don't know if it's from a German word or not.
    No, if you use your pan right, it should never need anything except to be wiped out. If you burn something on it & have to scour it to get it off, then you have to rub it with oil & bake it in the oven for an hour or two to re-season it. V gave me a couple of cast iron saucepans too but the handles were wood & I did not want to season them by cooking fat in them when I was going to cook things in water in them & they were too heavy for routine use but if I want to fry something (rarely), I always use my cast iron skillet. My corn bread molds are cast iron too (if you want to cook pieces shaped like an ear of corn).
    You could kill someone with one of my skillets. I'll bet the big one weighs 5 pounds. Maybe more.
