Alex practically told us. The night before I tested (I was 90% sure I was pregnant) when we were putting Alex to bed, she started talking about a baby boy. It was eerie. Todd and I just looked at each other like "how does she know?" The next day I started telling her we were having a baby and there's a baby growing in my belly. She says it's a boy. I'm pretty sure she's right.
Last weekend, I got out my really good Bradley homebirth video to show the girls. Alex has seen it before but it's been at least 4 months. We talked about mommy having a baby, and she starting telling me about how my tummy would "get big" and the baby will "come out" (as she looked between my legs). Then she said there's a baby in her belly too.
Cori was mesmerized by the birthing video and they watched it 4 times in a row. Cori mostly liked seeing the baby nurse. Sometimes I think she remembers nursing. I know Alex remembers nursing. . .
I'm really excited about the prospect of having Alex at the birth, but I don't know about Cori. She may be too young to see me working so hard without being able to climb all over me.
I want to find lots of homebirth videos especially ones with children in them, so they can be a little more prepared. I'm even thinking it might be nice to film the birth, so they can watch themselves at the birth.
