i thought i would start this thread have seen it in a few other threads and since some of us have only 2 months left before baby is born i thought it would be cool to see what everyone is feeling
in labor or warm up for labor
Like what are we doing to get ready?
I'm doing pelvic tilts and using my ball to sit on now to help open the pelvis. Squats in the morning when I think about it while making breakfast :) In another month I'll start rrl tea, not before 37wks. I do bridges too when I do push-ups to have baby fall forward into the right position.
Working on breathing through the ctx I do get and trying to visualize being calm and in control so I have less stress during labor.
Continuing on Hippy's train of thought, I've been doing inversions (spinning babies) 1-2 times per day and pelvic tilts to help this baby boy get into optimal position. Also visualizing him moving into position and staying put until term Practicing my Hypnobirthing breathing and visualization techniques. When I was hospitalized and really contracting, at one point I was in such a state of meditation that I felt almost like I was flying. I could hear what was going on in my hospital room but was so calm and focused. It was amazing. I'm thinking RRL tea would be a good plan after 37 weeks as well. And I'm seeing my chiropractor twice a week for adjustments. She's been particularly focused on my pelvis the past few weeks, assuring that everything is aligned and moving freely. I am feeling optimistic about labor and making it to term. My friend asked me last night if I'll be less worried when I am 35 weeks. I asked her to define less worried?! I think I will worry no matter what, it is who I am, but if I can get to 35-36 weeks, I'll be much less worried... I think.
Thinking of you Unuselyriver! Sending you love, good vibes and peaceful thoughts
Sparkle are you on full bd or partial? My partial w/ ds1 was I could sit on the couch, and could get up to make something to eat, or a very quick errand, but didn't have to lay in bed. Which I'm really glad, because reading about full br and problems it can cause would stress me out. Right now mw just wants me limiting my activities if the ctx come back (& today they are), but not bed rest.
