I would also go with the PW hospital. My fear of birthing in a hospital is based totally on the bad treatment and disregard for my wishes I've received in my experience with hospitals, and if I were pretty sure I had the choice of going to a place where my wishes would be honored and I'd be treated respectfully, I'd opt to go there even if the accommodations are less cosy. I do understand your dilemma, though!

I've been thinking about this issue lately, too. My DS spontaneously self weaned right after he turned 2 in June. This was a total surprise to me, as he was very attached to nursing right up till the end. It's been over a month now, and he has only rarely expressed interest. When he does, I let him.

I know I feel menstrual cramps in my low back, and that's basically where I have felt labor- but everywhere else, too. I'm actually quite nervous about birth this time. It's the worst pain I've ever experienced and I'm not ready to do it again!! vc- when are you due? I'm due sept 30, and it sounds like you must be about that same time. Today's...
It's actually kind of fun- I bought this kiss my face bar soap the other day, it's lavender and olive oil, and I've never been so clean in my life! I love the smell of it so much I could wash with it constantly. I don't have any desire to eat it, thank goodness!
