So fun that Emily got to start this one too Welcome!! Looking forward to your baby!
Hey, so if anyone is interested in a quality kick-count-- go to a concert. lol. My two (also pregnant) sisters and our mum and I went to a concert this past weekend. For those who might know of them it was Leahy and Natalie McMaster. Cape Breton/Gaelic fiddlers. So, very rollicking, energetic and loud. The babe was doing the same highland jig's that the performers were doing. Lots of fun.
Wow, I can't believe it's time for your lodge already! It seems like just yesterday you were posting pics of your wedding. Welcome to the home stretch of your pregnancy!
David Letterman is retiring. Such great memories of watching him over the past thirty-two years!
Jordan, I just got done reading your birth story and looking at your pics. Amazing!
I'm just watching Friends. The episode where Rachel has her baby. It has to be the best birth on tv there is, as far as extremely mainstream shows go. Rachel goes to 41+1 without talk of drug induction. Goes into labour on her own. Labours without pain meds for 21 hours before reaching 10cm. Baby shows up breech and she pushes her out. No talk of emerg c/sec.
There are a few things about the episode I would have changed, but otherwise I'm always glad to watch it and don't really cringe at all!
lol, not that that has anything to do with me or my unborn babe. hehehe.
Doesn't she end up sharing a room with Janice...or was that when Phoebe had the triplets?
Another thing that always cracks me up about labor on tv/movies is how it always strikes super hard and fast. Like the mom will just be doing her regular daily routine and all of a sudden.....BAM, she's like doubled over wailing in pain and rushing off to the hospital.
I have only seen that episode once, but that is so nice that it's such a great birth! I was always a big FRIENDS fan.
I just had to explain to my DH as well about only 1 in 4 labors starting with water breaking, and how the whole one minute you're ok the next minute you're in the throes of it is really only how it happens on tv/in the movies.
Mara & Joel, 2009
Actually only about 10% of births start with SROM, it is so funny how much time women spend worrying about their water breaking in public when statistically the odds of it even breaking before labor are pretty low. Everyone I know who had it happen had it happen in the night or at a time when they were really relaxed.
Jordan I have never seen that episode ~ Did you see the recent "The Office" birth? I thought that that one wasn't all that bad (considering how they frequently go ). I will have to watch the Friends one.
J~ Do you think that this labor will start with SROM again? What do you picture this labor being like?
(And, do you put something on your bed? Like a waterproof sheet? My MW recommends one and I didn't do it either time previously but think that I will this time in case I end up birthing on the bed)
