Hey friends,
I don't post much but I love this community. Used to be on the list but somehow got lost. I am Ruth Due October 4 planning my 3rd homebirth. Just got my carseat today... felt good to get that out of the way. Now we just need to get firewood!

Sex - love pregnancy sex, can't get enough...

Preparation - took a hypnobirthing course, didn't get that much out of it, now I am doing the hypnobabies home course which I really like, I'll let you all know if it really works in about a month.

Did anyone here do a sibling class? I spent so much time with my first prepping her for the arrival of the second. I have done hardly any prepping for my four year old. We watched a couple of birth videos and thats about it. She said that she doesn't want to be there to see the baby come out "all bloody and yucky" but she wants to be the one to tell us if its a boy or a girl. I figure we'll play it by ear.

Happy labor vibes to all!

Hi Gals,

Wanted to chime in on the breast discussion. I used to work as a lactation consultant in a hospital, went to a breaastfeeding conference. One of the speakers had worked in Africa. She said that women in Africa do not understand the american male obsession with breasts. The African women wondered if American men were hungry! That made me laugh... evidently african men are much more interested in hips, thighs and butts, the bigger the better.

Postpartum Sex - While my dh and I enjoy the best sex ever while I am pregnant, postpartum is a completely different story. We've gone about two years, no sex, after each of my kids. With baby constantly on my body I just can't tolerate any more touch, especially breasts. Fortunately my patient husband is adept at fulfilling his own needs but he has asked that we not go quite so long after this baby. This is probably our last baby, I'll be so sad to see the heightened libido go!
