: Welcome Asher, love the story. Also enjoyed reading about Geneva and Brynn's arrivals- thanks all for the pics and stories!
And I like the newest names- Brynn, Geneva, Asher, Ori, and Luka...
And glad all the hubbies made it to births! Very few birth complications going on around here, too, that's nice! Our group had one high BP, one preterm, one not getting the natural birth she planned, one VBAC gone repeat c-section. I am glad most of you are getting what you wanted in birth, and send hugs to those who didn't.....
Just saying hi...I ended up going to two births this week as an assistant- one a first timer due the day before me, the other a first timer due the same day. SO weird to see a baby that is as old as mine be born! I still feel like birth is nowhere in sight for me. As it is now, I need another week to get paper work done, and then rest and get centered. DH always talks about how for vacations, he doesn't get excited ahead of time, he just goes and stops when it is time, and then is fully present and excited to be there. I think we will both do that for this birth. Though I feel ready in some ways, it still seems impossible that it will actually happen next week or so!
And after cruising into a place where all our appliances were finally fixed and the house was tidy, we now have a pipe leak and had to turn off the hot water heater! Now even though the dishwasher, laundry, and showers are all fixed we can't use them! This is madness, and I am being zen about it. I just need hot water for my tub....and to stay on top of the cleaning so it doesn't get out of hand. Plummer comes in the morning though. Hopefully this is a short phase, a blip on the screen.
Glad you are hangin in there with me AZ still pregnant, and that you are getting/feeling ready Jesse...I am still liking being pregnant except for terrible heartburn...I love feeling the feet and legs, and really am relishing the wiggliness inside me. It's getting me acclimated to the fact that there really will be a baby in my life. I still can't imagine, really, so I like having the baby be so prominent yet "underwraps"......I got my nursing pillow and I sat with it on my lap trying to imagine MY CHILD being there. Craziness....I am just getting excited in a new way.
So, back to sleep...just up late since my schedule got disrupted by the all nighter birth last night.
Take it easy, love those early milky sleepy days in daze you are all in...Heidi
