A mother's attempt to blog her way out of stress and chaos by sharing the joy as well as the sorrow...
This made me snort! Hang in there! Isn't He great? Once we have those babies, all that pain of waiting just goes away? I figure He was pretty smart in doing that so we keep having those babies. ;)
Hang in there, no one has ever been pregnant forever! Those last few weeks are a killer. You will have such an awesome natural home delivery that will be well worth the wait. Take advantage of this extra time.
I meant to comment on your birth stories post - you've got me trying to convince my husband that we should do a home birth with our next kid (whenever that happens). I've always wanted a home birth, we've never had enough money to do something insurance wouldn't pay for + hubby is a little... reluctant. But I am convinced after reading your stories (and after my hospital births with my first two) that I want it badly. Plus, I just found out our insurance will cover 100% of our midwife's fee. Woot. And I found a midwife who has a birthing center and does regular women's visits, so I'm going to see her in a few months for my women's yearly, and then maybe ask her for help convincing hubby that a home birth will be fine. I have a few questions to ask her (since I ended up with pitocin to help labor with both kids). Anyway, just thought I'd let you know how you've inspired me. (3 out of 5 of my mom's kids, including me, were home births :D )
Becca, that's fantastic! I'm flattered my stories have helped you. Good luck! :)
