Name: Alison

Due date: August 24/ 38weeks 6days

How are you feeling: Great. I do have the occasional aches and pains, but that's to be expected. Otherwise I feel pretty good.

Anything specific you're doing to induce labour: Nope. I picked up some EPO thinking to start using it, but I don't think I will. Thank goodness it was on sale. I doubt I'll do anything specific until I'm post-dates.

Any last minute preparations: Nope. I'm pretty prepared.

How do you envision your birth: Relaxing, quiet, peaceful. With my support people close by.

Anything you want to add: I'm so excited for this baby to come. I love/hate this last part of pregnancy. Knowing that labour could happen at any time and waiting to see what day this baby decides is his/her birthday! Eee! So exciting and nerve wracking all at once!

Postpartum

Baby's name:Penelope Jane

Birthday:August 8, 2012

How is baby: Penny is doing great! Breastfeeding is going very well and she lets me get about a 4 to 5 hour stretch of sleep at night.

How are you: I'm doing well, still get sore and I have to remind myself to take it easy. I forget that a c-section is considered major surgery but sometimes I just feel useless being at home and not cleaning stuff.

How is the family adjusting as a whole:DH and I are in love with our little girl, and we've adjusted pretty well to having a baby in house and helping each other out with things

Anything you want to add: I miss being pregnant Sad but that doesn't mean I'm going to be working on #2 anytime soon, we want to take some time to just enjoy our baby girl. I think we'll start trying in about a year but if an oopps should occur that would be fine too!
