Getting geared up and loving reading about what everyone else is doing.
I saw my midwives yesterday and they were adamant I not even think about this baby coming before Jan. 2 bc my backup OB is out of town until then. He delivered my 2nd child- my Vbac- and is v midwife friendly. Plus my midwife is into astrology and said I am so nurturing, she just didn't see me having a baby born on a Capricorn moon (today's moon). Sigh...so of course this all made me v paranoid bc today is exactly how long I carried my daughter (38 wks 5days) and I've been having tons of bowel movements, BH, back pain and feeling loopy. Oh yeah also we live right off the Rose Bowl parade route so there has been zero parking in my neighborhood for blocks.
Anyway, starting to breathe easily bc it's nearly 4 pm here now and seems I have dodged the New Years date.
Although truth be told, when she wants to come, she will! We will be happy to see her too.
Working now on getting my birth altar in dining room where the pool is going set up with candles and things I want to look at...washing wool diaper covers and making a shepherds pie to freeze. I feel she will be here by end of weekend- just my hunch- we shall see!
I have my labor oil blend ready for the burner- lavender, tangerine, marjoram, petitgrain, vetiver, patchouli, roman chamomile. Gonna fire that up shortly.
Wondering about labor music too...hmm...might upload some Tibetan singing bowls for ambiance and also music I love like Kate Bush or jazz. Not sure what I'm feeling.
Hope everyone is well rested, not ill and had a lovely New Years!!
Sending you all good vibes and love! 🙏🌟❤️
