We have been trying to figure out what to do about weighing baby this time after as well. I am willing to wait a day or two and just get a weigh in at our breastfeeding resource center, but dh is all about accuracy! And yes, big babies are born at home all the time. My last dd was born at home in the tub, weighing in at 10.2 pounds right after the birth, not even a skid mark. (midwife had a scale) I still would love to call up my doc from my first birth who was so afraid my baby would be *gasp* 8 pounds, she was 9.5 btw. I don't think your body will make a baby too big for you, especially if you have the faith and knowledge to trust your body to birth the baby.
I have been feeling good, 30 weeks this week. I am getting so excited. Getting a surge of energy lately. going to take advantage of it before I get too worn out. I still forget I am pgegnant until I try to leap up off the couch. The only thing really keeping me down these days is my horrible seasonal allergies. Hopefully they will pass by the end of the month and I can enjoy the last weeks of my pregnancy (like breathing through my nose and not peeing every time I sneeze!)
Dh is really on board with uc now. He caught me off gaurd the other day, out of the blue he says to me, "I know you can do this, you are amazing. Having a baby is just normal you know, and I trust you fully in your abilities." He has been a little nervous about it before, but now is like, what would the midwife do that we can't do for ourselves? He has even been sharing our plans with some of his work buddies ( I was a little bigged at first, nervous about outside pressure, not wanting to share our plans) But he has actually received positive responses from the older men he works with. Who would of known? Well, I had better get on with my day. Thinking of you all. Getting closer for the rest of us with babes due!!!!!
