changed my ideal birth scenario

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
i originally thought it would be lovely to birth on a sunny spring day but for some reason i have the inkling for rain. all of a sudden i'm envisioning a cool day with rain pattering on the roof while i labor in the pool in front of a fire. i still prefer daytime but darkness sounds better than sunshine.....

the only rain forecasted is tomorrow evening & then not until the 23rd!? if he doesn't come tomorrow then i'll change my scenario back to sunshine!

I can see how that would be really peaceful. I got a pregnancy massage last week and it was sunny when I went in, not a cloud in the sky. When I came out an hour later the skies had opened up and it was just pouring. It smelled so earthy and green and I found myself thinking, "Hmmm...this would be great weather to birth in," as I made my way home. All day I thought labor would start, but no dice!

I hope whatever the weather, your birth is perfect for you!

We just had a passing summer shower (I know it's not summer yet, but it feels like it and it was one of those kind of storms - sunny but raining big huge drops and thunder) and I had the same thought - what a lovely day to have a baby. Unfortunately, it was just a passing one, done in about 10 minutes. I think we have more forecast for tonight???

now that's perfect! rain during labor & delivery & sunshine for recovery....i'm changing my scenario again to this.

I remember laboring and looking out my living room window at the rain when I was birthing dd. I lived in Portland, Oregon then, though... so I guess that was typical!

Yeah, that's totally cheating. Though probably Texas in May is cheating too, it's been very, very wet this month.

I was thinking this last night. I am very at peace during rain. I think it will be my ideal to birth during a rainstorm.

We had a great storm last night - tons of thunder and lightning. Would be fun to be roaring through birth in that kind of weather.
