Last time, everything was so chaotic I didn't even think about this. Are you planning on listening to CDs at your birth? If so what?

mama to DS1 10/04 and DS2 9/07 and brand new DS3 5/29!

I have a bunch of music loaded onto our iPod- some indian, Native American, and sort of eclectic soulful stuff. I have one song that is from a group called WAH!. The song is actually a sort of mantra in Hindi I believe. It lasts about 25 mins and for some reason that was what I could focus on at DD's birth. The melody changes over the length of the song but I love the meaning of it, especially while focusing on labor. "May all beings in the world find peace".

For our first daughter we had Paul Simon's Graceland and Rhythm of the Saints and after we delivered we used some relaxing Girl from Ipanema music.

I have a CD of thunderstorms set to classical music, it's what I used with DS, and will this time too. I use it to fall asleep to every night, so I deeply associate it with being relaxed.

Dawn, mama to D (3.06) & N (9.07) C (11.09) & Still-in-shock surprise due in Aug!

I'm glad we'll be at home (or plan to be) cause I really have no idea what I'll want to listen to, so at least we'll have access to choice.
I am curious to know what others are thinking they'll be listening to.
