I'm starting week 27 here...and my little goes headdown and tranverse too.... My midwife told me that they really like to see headdown by 34 weeks...but until then, baby is likely to be somersaulting.
Oh Ambrose.... I cannot imagine what you are going through. I can tell you this though...I do have the experience of having cremated a loved one. I can tell you that it brought me personal comfort when I gave great thought of where to put her ashes. We chose the ocean. Now, everytime I see the ocean I am reminded of my loved one...when we visit the ocean over the summer and I put my toes in the surf, I am reminded of her.

This will be my first homebirth so I don't know what I'll listen to. I am going to assume that I'll want to hear what normally relaxes me/lifts my spirits and that I find enjoyable. I like Norah Jones, Jewel, Sarah McLaughlan (sp?).... As for readings, I intend to make a list of inspiration passages/quotes and to ask my dh to read one periodicallly between contractions.
