wow I haven't read through here for a while...where to start...
serafina- I'm totally with you on strawberries. Our garden/property is still in too much flux for much permanent planting but I can't want to plant a nice strawberry patch and some high bush blueberries. For now we just do crazy picking at a local farm and end up with a freezer's worth of strawberries for the winter.
also, its nice to hear the sterile water helped your back labor. Its nice to hear a real person say it. It is my number one fear.
echo- my only fear last time was that I would poop myself. I have weird privacy issues with the bathroom so I really didn't want to poop in front of DH. Yeah, so...it happened and I survived. Though I would prefer not to do it again I figure it probably will and I can't change that so it is at least one fear I can kind of brush off now.
dahlia- I totally found a cute enough tankini top at goodwill the other day that I think will actually fit through the summer. I was so excited. Now I just need to find a bottom that fits since I gave my bikini bottom to my little sister last year when I opted for a one piece.
danielle- If you did go into labor at an inopportune time of day could you send your boys to your mother-in-laws for the birth? She's really close by, yes? I'm praying that this baby waits to arrive until my mom has gotten here. I think I'll ask her to come a week early just in case. If he/she decides to make an appearance before that DS will have to go to neighbors or possibly I have a friend who could come to our house and stay with him. I'm birthing at a hospital that is 45 minutes away so I'm totally feeling anxiety about leaving DS behind when we go.
