Hey all! I am still here too! (Darn keyboard stopped working, had to go out & buy a new one today. It is a pain in the hinney to copy & paste when ever I needed a "t" or a "y". Do you have any idea how many words use those letters!!!!)
Overall I feel pretty good. Only complaint is my sciatica, which comes & goes, thank goodness. It is mostly sensory issues with it, do not touch my right thigh, or I jump!!!
I am getting very excited about this baby. I talk to it when ever it moves & tell it I can not wait for it to be born & love on it & nurse it!! I am already falling in love with this baby.
As for being born, I am so anxious to have a natural birth (in a good way!! perhaps excited is a better word.) I had my midwife home visit yesterday. It was so nice and laid back. We had it at my Moms, since I will birth there. My grandma was too funny. This whole time she states she does not want me to birth there, she is nervous. The midwife shows & up she states she is not nervous or has any questions. UGH! Now is your time Grandma & she clams up!!! I guess that is her generation. My Mom did get her questions answered so that was nice. (her biggest worry is her new flooring!) My doula/friend was there too. She made me a pregnancy goddess to wear. I LOVE IT! I will try to post a picture. She handmade it from clay & put in on a lanyard for me to wear. I did today & someone even commented on it.
DH admits he is nervous. I guess it is the fear of the unkown. I am trying to negate all the negative voices in my head. Why do we do that? Seems like wasted energy. I just keep giving it up when those stupid little voices creep up. I trust birth. I trust my body & my baby to work together for a peaceful, healthy, safe birth. Mantra Mantra Mantra!
I keep having occasional surges. I love it. Each one brings me closer to my baby. I think she may have dropped, it is hard to tell. It is getting so exciting.
Where there any 5/5/05 babies????
Anna, you wrote so eloquently. I share many of your same thoughts.
Eaglevoice, interesting analogy! I hope you went & baked something!!! LOL!
Mamafae I wish I could make it to a chiropractor. I am glad you found some relief!
Everyone else, we are truly in the home strecth! Hold Strong!!! Even though BH can seem like a nuisence, try to think of them helping your baby & body. That is what I do!!!
Have a wonderful weekend anyone!!!!!!!
UPDATE: here is a pic of the pregnancy goddess my friend made me & DH & my bellies!!! LOL!http://www.kodakgallery.com/ShareLan...34_53710699407
