i'm due tomorrow, and as of yesterday our birth room is all set up, all my paying work is done, and i feel ready. today or tomorrow would be perfect. i think the babe is still posterior, so i'm doing lots of hands-and-knees yoga but also reasonably okay with having that sort of birth if that's the best way for it to happen (my first birth was a 10# posterior baby induced with pit and arom, born after 7 hours of labor and 15 minutes of pushing. granted, i was 19 years old at the time). we see our midwife tomorrow, but i'm not having her do any internal checks--if i'm 3 cm dilated, i'll just get more impatient, and if i'm closed up i'll be frustrated. i'm happier just thinking yes..yes..yes every time i have a contraction that feels "cervical" and knowing that my body's getting ready for the big adventure.
oh, and i slept something like 12 hours last night (with time off for peeing and waking up with d's alarm a bunch of times)! woo.
hugs, mamas--we're almost there!
