Monday will be the last prepared childbirth class. We were encouraged to bring a "birth bundle" to the next class... so I'll see what we can find. Never heard of a birth bundle before, eh? Well neither had I. Found this website though about it: http://www.birthingfromwithin.com/birth_bundle
At yesterday's appointment, the doctor said there was still "nothin' happenin'." I guess that means we'll probably make it to the due date or beyond. I am more convinced now than ever that next time around I want to go with a midwife or birthing center. I know the doctors deal with babies all the time, but this is special for ME and I want a little time. The doctor didn't even take the time to look over the birth plan I brought in and when I asked if he would consider my having a water birth he said, "You wouldn't want to do that anyway; there's been shown to be increased risk of infection in tubs like that." Bologna! and that he'd have the audacity to guess what I'd want was a bit much. Well regardless of whether the doctor cares to honor the document with his eyes or not, I was able to go to a neat website and create this handy little document. I had heard several people recommend having a birth plan but no one would actually tell you exactly WHAT that meant/included. This website made it easy: http://www.childbirth.org/interactive/ibirthplan.html
Today's been a bit rough and I'm not even quite sure why. I think the money situation of how to keep things afloat once you're here are weighing on me a little. Or maybe I'm just tired. All I know is that I've been moody--oh yes, moody. In fact, I found myself getting a little irked at YOU, all because you wouldn't quit having hiccups last night. I was a bit horrified at myself for feeling that way. :-O
Won't be much longer and you'll be seeing this little ol' world. I hope you won't be too disappointed. It's home, or at least will be until we all make it those mansions in the sky.
Love you baby girl,
