Re: Daily Chat - Aug 23rd

Hospital birth here as there are no birthing centers or homebirthing MW's in the area. I'll be doing natural again though, like with N. Z was pain medicine overload + unnecessary induction made for a very unhappy birthing and recovery experience. I don't do hypnobabies and have never been to a birthing or lamaze class or the like. I just remind myself my body knows what to do, and just go with it. I've never been too wrapped up with detailed birthing plans just because birth can change so quickly.

Hospital birth, and more than likely with an epidural(though each time I go in saying I'm not going to get one, lol!).



Tomorrow I have an U/S to check up on the SCH, and then a OB appt. to follow. Tomorrow is also mine and my hubby's 8th anniversary!

Re: Daily Chat - Aug 23rd

I am planning my first homebirth. I have hired a doula as well. We will go with the flow. I don't really have time to devote to anything like hypnobabies. Plus I am already spending nearly $4k between the mw and the doula so unless I coul find it for free. It isn't happening!

Re: Daily Chat - Aug 23rd

Just an FYI for those of you who don't want to spend big bucks on the hypnobabies, I did the Hypnobirth class last time and got a book and CD (also just called Hypnobirthing I believe and available on amazon). . .the book and CD were as good (or better) than the class itself. While it's not nearly as involved as the hypnobabies, there are many exercises for practicing relaxation in there and I used to listen to the CD as I fell asleep at night. The book and the CD are only like $20 on amazon. . .so it's a nice way to go for the same principles with out all the investment. I can look for a link to what I mean. . .
here we go: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS.../chrisficti-20
not sure if the above comes with the CD though, but these do: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS.../chrisficti-20

anywho. . .waiting, waiting, waiting. Tomorrow is my u/s!!!!!! At 10am (west coast). I am trying not to think about it too much today, b/c I am just so impatient and nervous and excited.

Homebirth w/ mw. Dont use anything like hypono but sounds lovely . I just "go to my happy place" I keep reminding myself I'm almost done, almost done. And focus on just breathing. Nothing else.

For the last 2 days I've felt like I'm starving to DEATH! Ughhhh!!! I could eat and eat and still be hungry. Making me nuts!

6 days!!


AOTD- Water birth at birth center. If I can afford it. . .but I keep feeling like something isn't right and she'll be early. I don't think I have great intuition, so hopefully it's just crazy hormones talking to me. The BH's I had today weren't much help. She does move around like crazy- still so small! Anyone else still have a normal looking tummy when laying down? I can't wait for my Sept apt to get measured and scheduled for a US to check the placenta and growth.

Today DS1 told me he wants to be Princess Peach for Halloween. I don't get their obsession with her.
