Where to begin and What to say....I am about 3 1/2 to 8 1/2 weeks from my due date. ( 3 1/2 being 37 weeks and 81/2 being 42 weeks..) We are once again planning a homebirth, although the first did not go as planned and after 20 hours we transported only to spend another 20 hours laboring before birth. Almost every day I do affirmations about what my homebirth will be and what is was last time, and now why it wont be what it was last time. I am doing my yoga almost daily and I feel great. I have opted to give hypno birthing an honest shot and do feel confident in its worth for me and my birth. So here I am close to my date and I feel very empty about it. I dont necessarily feel scarred, I do not really feel anxious or over excited. I know that the end result is so amazing and worth anything that may or may not happen in my birth so I actually also feel confident too. I guess that I am slightly nervous still but I do not want to be. I dont know why I am even writing this because it seems to be going nowhere, kinda like my last birth. HA HA lol! I take every day in stride and just play the waiting game. WHen will it happen , and when will it truly start to be active? That is all for now ds is calling hope that i havent taken up to much of your time.
