I will organize the last of the baby clothes, clean my house top to bottom and spend the day before baking easy-to-eat whilst laboring/nursing muffins. DD will go down like a dream at 8pm and sleep in her room for 12 straight hours.
I will wake up with a twinge of "hmmmm" at 6am. I'll spend some time in bed, just me, knowing that DD and DH are still asleep. After a bit, I'll get up out of bed and on the birth ball, check my email, update you ladies, and decide what I want to eat for breakfast. I'll have easy contractions 10 minutes apart for an hour, and then I'll wake DH up. He'll be incredibly excited and give me a big kiss.
I'll text my sister to let her know that she should come get DD in a few hours. DH will make me a yummy breakfast. We'll chat and I'll boogie around the house, handling contractions. DD will wake up in a fantastic mood and I'll tell her that we might get to meet baby brother today. She'll be incredibly excited and give me a big kiss and hug. She'll want to play with the birth ball and eat breakfast. After she gets dressed, we'll all take the dog on a big walk around the neighborhood, me stopping every once in a while to handle a contraction. Things will pick up in intensity. I'll call my doula.
My sister will arrive and hang out for a bit. She'll be incredibly excited and give me a big hug. She'll clean my tub and toilet again, in case I want to do any laboring there. She'll take an awesome picture of me. She'll take DD -- they'll have fun at the park, eat lunch, and go back to her house. My doula will arrive. Things will pick up in intensity again. I'll drink coconut water and eat applesauce.
I'll get in the shower. DH will double-check the hospital bags and load them in the car. I'll get out of the shower. I'll hang on DH. I'll squat. I'll put one leg up on the toilet. I'll say, I think it might be time to go. My doula will agree. She'll call my doc's pager and then call the hospital to give them a head's up.
I'll get in the back, hang over the seat, and hum. My doula will get in the back with me. DH will be calm, cool, and collected, and drive us to the hospital smoothly, quickly, safely.
We'll meet my doctor in triage, he'll check me, and I'll be complete -- no time for a hep lock! straight to L & D! people will start rushing around, but DH, doula, and doc will remain calm and I'll be focused. I'll start to feel the urge to push on the way. While the nurses are setting up the bed, I'll say, I need to push now. Doc will throw some chux pads on the floor and I will push that baby out of my vagina!
The placenta will plop out a few minutes later, the nurses will help me up onto the bed. DH will cut the cord. Baby will nurse effortlessly.
