That's so cute that DH is on board with a natural birth this time after going to the class. Men are funny about new things. I'm glad he is excited about it now. Haveing a supportive partner is a big factor in a really great birth.
OK sorry it took so long here it is:
"The “Rule of 10” Versus Women’s Primal Wisdom"
It talks about the urge to push before 10cm. This isn't the same thing as the power birth thing that Brittany posted.
Doing pretty good! I've kept this baby in for a few more days Woo hoo! Saturday night I had some pretty strong contractions 2 minutes apart lasting for one minute. Literally they were 1 minute on, 1 minute off - for two hours. I laid still for the first hour relaxing - then timed them for the second hour (still relaxing). I finally decided to get up, drink a glass of water and lay on the couch. They just slowly tapered off - woo hoo! I'm so excited that I'm just a couple of days away from 37 weeks. Have a mw appt Wed morning and then it's on!
Sounds like your body is really getting in some great practice! I bet by the time it's go time you will go nice and easy. Isn't it fun with the second baby? Not having the hyper-excitement of a first timer and really allowing your body to relax and do what it needs to? Hope you have a great day today!
That is great news. It sounds like you are getting close.
Starting moving around a little more today. Figure one day won't make too much of a difference right?? We are in the process of buying a house (fabulous timing I know!) and we had our home inspection today. That was really exciting and we were very happy to find out that the house checks out - so we're moving forward! Our closing date is Feb 14. DH is going to tear down one of the walls, strip the floors and get new carpet in, and paint the whole thing - whew! So, we're not planning to actually move in until around April 1. I'll be glad to have a month at least with my LO in a stable house until I have to start packing and moving!
DTD for the first time in about a week and a half - man I needed that! Having some pretty strong contrax right now but nothing *too* close together. We'll see what happens over night. I have bags packed for all of us and all the plans are in order - so ready whenever she is - and now I'm 37 weeks! SO HAPPY!!!!!
MW appt at 9:30am tomorrow - probably won't really find anything out - I doubt they'll check me or anything. So just waiting now...
