What are you doing the same/different this time?

As I was just cleaning the litter box (DH stinks at this because he is not thorough), I was reflecting on how much less worried about things going wrong this time around. I am just not worried about my 15-year old indoor cat catching toxoplasmosis and giving it to me, particularly for the first time ever (I've always had cats and surely have been exposed already if it's going to happen). I am also not worried about having one or two cups of coffee or tea each day this time. These are both things I stopped doing with my son's pregnancy. I'm not doing frequent yoga this time (unfortunately--I miss it but just can't seem to make time for it plus I keep hurting my wrist). I'm not as careful about making good food choices this one either. I remember telling DH that my son would not be made of fried food...and I thought this seemed a bit overkill yesterday as I was eating fish and chips. As for what is the same, I will be using the same midwife and birth center.

What about other mamas? What are you doing the same or differently this time? New mamas, what kind of pregnancy and birth do you hope for?

This is my 3rd - EDD December 9th

Things I will be doing differently:
- Home birth (possibly a water birth). No drugs, no intervention, using a midwife
- No voluntary US.

Things that will be the same:
- Lots of guilt-free (healthy) eating!
- Constant belly rubbing, even though I'm barely showing!
