Re: Home birth mamas

Prepare meals ahead of time. DH kept saying it was no big deal he can make food blah blah blah. Um... Nope. AGAIN I was hungry all.the.time. So next time I will be buying and hiding snacks for the first week pp so I don't have to continually bug dh.

We had a doula with dd1 and she took some video and pics of the labor which was awesome. They're no way professional but I love that I have something to look back on. The 2nd mw for dd2 took some pictures but I really wish someone was videotaping or there just for pictures as dd2 was breech and I'd love to be able to share some pictures of that experience.

We didn't have anyone to watch dd1 during the birth and thank God it happened while she was sleeping as I'm pretty sure she would've been freaking out and I needed my DH and quiet.

DD1 1/09 *** DD2 4/12
