Oh I love this thread!!!!!Why didn't we think of this sooner...?....although I guess this really is the perfect time seeing that since we are all so close to actually birthing, we have lots to talk about!
This will be my 3rd birth at home. I also am a water birther.....my midwife loans me her tub. This time around I am going to use this tub...http://http://madeinwater.co.uk/pool.html
I still have tons of "getting ready" to do. I only just have begun. Just this week I have gone through all the baby clothes and sorted out the boy and girl(because I don't know what I am having) 0-3 month clothing. Then I washed them in just water and now will put them aside in bags ready to be grabbed.
There is so much that I need to buy but cannot afford at the moment so I have to figure out exactly what I can get by....then buy just the things I need for right now.
I have been reading birthing from within and am slowly feeling better and better about this time around.....I hate to say it and it is getting better but...I still am dreading the labor. Although I'm sure that all of us do.... I am trying to think as positive as I can about birthing the baby. And I am trying to take the best care of myself and boost my body to get ready. I feel more ready this time around than the last two, it's just that my last birth was very hard for me.... I had back labor. Anyways, I feel like this time I am having to spend more time preparing myself inside and outside.
Anyone else feel the same?
