A new strip. Finally. It’s taking forever for me to get these done! I’m sorry!

i love the photo background in the last panel. you’re always trying out new things with the art in your comics and it’s always beautiful and interesting to look at. i’m so excited for the baby to finally come!!
I love the little details you put into this comic, like using computer fonts for the world bubbles, but handwriting the text messages, or that photo background in the last panel
Also, that 6th panel is simply adorable. <3
I love Maria’s posture and expression in the 3rd panel, and everything about the 6th one. This comic makes me excited for baby Silkfersed/Holm, but still apprehensive about the rest of the fallout from Anders’s Night (and morning) of Mistakes.
Please let him arrive on time, Rene! That would be the best ending to ALM ever! (:
This is one of my favourite strips by far. It shows that no matter how much crap you go through in a relationship, if it’s meant to be and you truly love one another, you’ll keep fighting ’til the end. Anders and Maria are perfect for each other.
And yes, it makes my vagina hurt. Still, can’t wait to see what’s next!
Thank you for updating! Is this going to be a 1 or more times a week update, or just whenecer life allows? I read a while ago it would be done in Oct., so I checked back. But there are still 30 somethig strips left. Should I just check back in a few months?
@AJ: You know, I don’t even want to say a word about my ambitions of updating. It just makes me feel terrible for letting people down. My goal is 3 times a week, whenever I get them done but that is nothing I feel like posting officially anymore. According to my old schedule I was set to finish this by the end of October but I am now 21 comics behind schedule, so around the end of November perhaps?
Jennifer has it right…
You really don’t want to be laying down in labor if you don’t have to be.
I know when I had my baby they couldn’t get me to lay down at all, not even too monitor the contractions (as if I couldn’t feel them!)
Most of the time I was standing up or crouching down, holding on to my partner and doula for support.
During transistion I was on my hands and knees (doing that crazy yoga pelvic rock so I wouldn’t push too soon) and then for the actual delivery I was squatting (being held up by doula and mother).
I say all this to illustrate the point that labor isn’t always the lay down affair depicted in movies and TV…
People also tend to be in bed after epidurals (needle in spine) because of course…once the epidural goes in…you’re paralized from the waist down.
Do not apologize! I for one appreciate the focus on quality rather than just churning out filler strips just to stay on schedule! Take all the time you need, and the payoff will be evident in the finished product!
(I don’t comment here much; just figured I’d throw in a few encouraging words and thank you for writing such a good comic)
