Thanks for the diaper info!
We had a home visit with our doula today , I'm starting to feel more in the birthin' mood I guess. There was a conference here last week with Michel Odent, so all my birthing community friends, including my Doula, are all super hyped about gentle birth. Its nice for me that she's been able to get that kind of belief boost so close to my birth! We had a really good long talk about how we would like my baby's birth to be, especially the time right afterward. I feel so inspired now. It's good because I had been getting more and more apprehensive about the whole thing. The threat of another pp hemmorhage had been getting me down I guess. Depending on how the placenta looks after its delivered I may have to go in for an immediate D&C. I guess I'm concerned that I won't be able to enjoy that special time right after the birth and I also worry that the anaesthesia for the operation might make my milk take longer to come in (like after the C-section with ds). So I'm really trying to focus on positive visualisations of this birth and post partum period. No retained placenta, no bleeding, healthy baby etc etc.!
The to do list has shrunk a little more. I finally got my sister to drop off the Moses basket today so I can get started on washing the linens (her house is very perfumey so I'll need to wash them a few times!
) and my other friend dropped off the carseat yesterday. Not too much more to do except get stuff ready for the actual labour. I want to make some labouraide, get some snacks ready and put together a little kit bag of toiletries etc. Last time, we were planning for a home birth, the whole idea of packing up to go to the hospital is new! Anyway, its all finally starting to feel real!
