Hello everyone! Wow so much news!
Congratulations Jillerina and Welcome Leo!!
Ashlee, Ella's birth story was beautiful!
I hope all of us first-time homebirthers get wonderful births like that! (I hope every woman in the world gets a birth like that!) It sounds so wonderful. I'm glad to hear so many great things about laboring in water; sounds like it'll make it much easier.
Well it's so goofy, but some days I feel like the baby will be here any time, because I'm so crampy and tired, etc.... And other days, like today, I feel like I'm still in my 6th month or something!
We walked around Ikea all day yesterday (what a zoo!!) and not a single contraction.
I've been on my feet all day today, too, running errands and grocery shopping, and don't feel particularly ready to have a baby, or even tired....
Maybe it's all mental. Since I know I don't have to go back to work tomorrow, I feel more relaxed... Anyway, I had
been hoping the baby would be early, but now I'm content to just wait it out. "I" still have lots to do around the house. (I've got DH painting upstairs right now. :LOL )
For those of you still working (Thia and Beansmama!), I recommend quitting this instant! It is such a huge psychic relief!
BTW, Good news Beansmama on the no pre-eclampsia!
I'll try to post a pic of DH tonight in his "p'udder". He was such a good sport in front of his coworkers, but now he's being all shy and refusing to pose for a picture.
