I would love to try a water birth at some point, but I think with this guy I'm just going to be happy to try labor in the tub (we cheated too and 'found out', although we really didn't have much choice--the first image on the us was him mooning us
My whole experience with ds#1 was so typical hopsital/OB not wanting to sit around for a first time mom...I'm curious to try a water birth, but right now I really just want to see how a 'regular' birth w/o pit and having your water broken and having an epidural goes--kwim?
Sleep is definitely getting interesting--the other night I had the pillow I sleep with between my legs ended up beneath my hips and I rolled onto my back and I swear I haven't slept that well in months. And of course-tried it again the night before last, and I couldn't lay on my back for 30 seconds without feeling like I was going to suffocate. *sigh*
I usually end up half on my side, half on my stomach (with something like 7 pillows holding the rest of my body up, so I don't have any real weight on my stomach), but I'm sure that will end soon too.
Does the baby kicking wake you up? This morning it felt like he was trying to kick out my ribs (I'm not quite sure how he managed that, since I didn't think he was up that high yet). Other times he does kick WAY low, which is such a totally weird feeling (ds1 didn't do that at all!)
LukesMum, I like Kyra a lot
We're down to 3 names for our guy, but I told dh that it was silly to pick one out now--with ds#1 I had a name all picked out, but then as soon as he was born and I looked at him I knew it wasn't the right name and changed to something I hadn't even been thinking about...of course I'm weird like that....
Here's to a quick (but happy and safe) 3rd trimester!!
