Oh, and for anyone wondering, Baby Fenwick (a nickname for this boy/girl inside me from my co-hort AND not an actual name being considered for this child) is fine as of my 28 week appointment today. I passed the "drink the orange stuff" test, am not anemic, and Fenwick's heart rate was 140. Fabulous.
This probably makes me sound even dorkier than I am but this week I have gotten such a nice welcome from the technology tools we have been using. I got some welcome emails when I joined some blogs and today a woman thanked me for following her on twitter. Strange that it isn't considered "stalking". I guess I like the feeling that people are interacting in such a positive way, even if it is through a computer. Such a warm and fuzzy feeling...not what I was expecting.
I spent yesterday working on my podcast and trying to get it from a MPG file to a URL. I learned a lot during my search that didn't help me but finally my buddy Lauren suggested video google. I'm not sure if that was what I was supposed to do for the project but now I can post my podcast to a variety of sites because it is in URL format. Awesome to have it work. I feel successful on several levels - I leanred to use my webcam and QuickPlay. I got through the public speaking part even though I am the queen of verbal crutches and you will hear "um" many times, and I used video.google to solve my problem. YEAH! This is a basic process for many I am sure but these were huge leaps for me.
