DD was like that. It didn't get better until she was...
Every night when I go to sleep on my back, I'm ecstatic. Not so ecstatic when the baby wakes me up five minutes later then poops all over me and the bed so that I have to change all the sheets in the middle of the night, but hey, that's part of the fun, right?

When we filled our tub when DD was born, we ended up boiling water on the stove to supplement as the water in the tank cooled. Meant a faster fill in the end... Just a thought. And we got the cliche of boiling water while someone was in labor, too!
The first item on my to-do list has been to make a to do list. You guys are really helping with that - thanks!
Never heard of babies coming on an eclipse night, either, but my midwife last time suggested that lots of babies come on the full moon. Sure enough, dd came on a full moon (well, 6 am the morning after)... So eclipses - why not?
I'm don't really have any helpful suggestions, but I just wanted to say that this has been a big question in our house this week, but I think we've finally resolved it (after much anxiety). Our situation is different, since we're having a homebirth, but DD is only 2.5 and still needs someone to be with her exclusively during the birth. We finally called my mother Wednesday morning and asked her to come in July (from across the country) and be here for the birth. This...
Congratulations! That's been one of the names on our short list, so obviously I love it!
