Happy Birthday Violet!!!
I'm so glad you are here! What a wonderful way to usher in the New Year! Happy Happy Day! I too look forward to some pics! Well done Mamamaya!
It sounds like you had a surprise with the baby girl
I guess your chances of having one were less than 50-50, already having 2 boys, so WOW (doesn't it decrease by like 10% each time or something like that?)! Congrats! Having my girl already, I can tell you you will not be disapointed!!! Lots of challenge...daughters do not let mom get away with ANYTHING! But their love is as true and deep as that ocean out your window. ENJOY!!!
All is well here. I did finally say something to MW about the assistant that I was getting 'funny' vibes off of, so she won't be coming to the birth. The thing is, there was some real tension between her and the doula trainee, who is the massage therapist, and HER I LOVE! So if it was going to be only one of them, it wasn't much of a debate for me. Since it's friday, everyone waiting on husbands/midwives to return should be in good shape - WELL DONE! We knew those babes were listening!
ProudMom, hang in there. You remember how hard it is at the end... you have had a terrific pregnancy so far, and there is no knowing that you will not have a wonderful homebirth ... so don't make that call yet. Enjoy the time off your feet as much as you can, and it may be ok with ds if he starts to get used to mama not having two open arms for him... it's going to be that way for a while! Just take it one day at a time and be patient with your body. You are working SUPER hard right now... cut yourself some slack!!!
Happy Happy New Year to everyone! Be safe, be gentle, be in love. xxx andy
