after my last birth my friend who attended it made me a beautiful, big, warm bowl of oatmeal with lots of cinnamon and raisins and organic cream and real maple syrup (we're canadian - it's got to be the real stuff!). it was so yummy and comforting, I still remember it with great fondness as "the best bowl of oatmeal ever". not sure, but I may go for a repeat on that idea this time - plus oats are really good at boosting the milk supply, I think this time I'll add a good sprinkling of hemp seeds for protein. it's good because it's so quick and easy, too, and anyone can make it for me w/o messing it up!!! I also like the idea of getting my older kids to help me make a simple cake during the early part of labour (if there is an early part the third time round. . .) that we can eat together after the birth to celebrate the baby's first "birth day". we'll have to see how that goes, though, I could see that plan getting scrapped pretty darn quick depending how the labour goes! I am definitely into the guinness, too, good call - must add that to my list of stuff to have on hand!
