I am feeling so huge, i don't know why I gain so much weight
DH took a few quick pictures http://photos.yahoo.com/sunpharee
in the 'chloe july' album.. I was 3cm on weds and DH is getting to be a pro at checking me
on weds only one of my midwifes fingers would fit and wiggle so 2-3cm and last night during our primrose oil cervical massage dh could get 2 fingers in with room
he loves feeling the baby's head too!
lost all of my mucus plug these last few days... the contractions just start to get regular....and after about 1.5 hrs i think I'm gonna call the midwife to give her a heads up..and...they stop
can't wait to have a lil boy to hold and love
I wrote out a lil birth plan for my midwife-at her request....
~I want my husband Cory to be extremely involved in the birth, I want him to deliver and catch the baby and do everything and anything he can.-as unassisted as he can be
~Chloe will be as involved as she wants to be possibly helping dad catch the baby, cut the cord, wipe down the baby and dress/diaper the baby.
~I want to see the baby come out using the large closet mirrors in my bedroom, and i want to see him before he gets wiped down.
~I don't want my water to be broken artificially. But sweeping, stripping and stretching are all ok.
~I am open to any and all herbs and remedies for whatever condition.-if you think it will help, I'll take it. I have a few herbs (arnica, skullcap, rescue remedy) but I'm not sure when to take them.
~I'll need help figuring out when and how to use primrose/olive oil and hot washrags in the crockpot.-really want to avoid an episiotomy.
~I don't want the baby to recieve any injections or eye ointment.
~The baby will not be circumsized
~If we forget or get busy, I would love help taking pictures of the labor/birth using my camera.
c'mon little baby..I can't wait to see you....got 3 calls today.."did you have it yet?"..lol
