I've seen your episode and if we were having a baby girl Violet was a top choice so it stuck out for me!

I have probably seen it, as I was a total baby show junkie when I was home with DS #1 last year. How funny! What a small world.

You look great, Jeanine! : I was expecting an 8-9lber when they kept saying she was supposed to be a "good size". Violet is beautiful!
What are your plans for this birth?

Not in your DDC but I watch all the baby shows (and they usually drive me crazy) but I was so happy to see a natural waterbirth. Awesome!

Im going to go pick up my dd at my moms house and watch it with her. she hasnt seen it yet, and I havent seen it since...well, maybe like a year ago.

I thought they did a good job. They created some drama where there was none, really. But, my dad was on there and he passed away in January, so itll be nice to always be able to watch him, even if it was only briefly in the waiting room. And, my FIL made some stupid comments about how long the labor was (um, water broke at 830pm, gave birth at 215am, not long at all) We were at the hospital from less than 3 hours before I gave birth. And, he said something about girls being lady!!! Horrific!! Who says that! He is such a great guy, but says some strange things sometimes!

The midwife and I spoke at length about her saying the baby was "ready" and "big"...as well as getting labor started at 39 weeks. I had preterm labor...so, of course castor oil is going to get it going. Although, Im a little lady, so I dont think a baby bigger than 7lbs 3oz would have been good. I had some nerve damage following the birth, so Im hoping for similiar sized or smaller sized baby.

The plan is to do the same exact thing, minus the video crew and producer in tow!!

We are planning our annual conference at work, and so I left later than I planned. I caught the last 5 minutes. You both are very lovely!

Hope they play it again so I can see the whole thing!
