Hey Wooby! Glad to know I'm not the only one who thinks the bagging of stuff is silly. I just washed everything and also put it away. I'll probably do another load while in early labour though!
My birthing pool is actually a rubbermaid trough, and it's oval. It's so great, I've lined it with pillows, and then we put a king size white flat sheet then, a heavy plastic (like the one used for drywalling). It's so awesome, you'd think it was made for a birthing pool. My midwife has been using it for 15 yrs now.
I'm is a sort of same situation, Soleil was born at 37 wks (next wk)
So my midwife was saying I'd probably go early too, but I asked her to stop saying that, because IF I do go to term, or MORE, than I'll feel like I've been pg forever, when you know, really, it's just term. It worries me when birth attendants tell their clients they'll go early...it disappoints the mom when she doesn't, kwim? Having said that, my babe has also dropped, and I did read that is unusual for second time pg's, unless labour is imminent...so, I'm getting my hopes up too!! But I've been losing weight, which can also be a pre labour sign!!!
So, we'll see eh????
Keep on keepin on sister,
