    Thanks so much!!!! I can hardly belieev that I finally get to have a lodge here! Horray for that!

    Let me see, what can I tell you about myself!

    My name is Erin, I am 25 years old. I am married to a wonderful Brazilian man named Toni, we've been married for 2 and a half years. We are currently living in Canada, working in leadership at a group home for teenage boys. But we do expect to return to Brazil at some point. We are expecting our first little one (a surprise!) in just under 2 weeks. ( )

    We had a miscarriage last fall, so the beginning of this pregnancy was a very fearful time for me. Fortunately, all is well and it has been relatively uneventful.

    I have really gone back-and-forth in my planning for the birth. There are so many opinions out there on so many issues, that it really took some time for me to decide what in my heart I truly believed to be the best option for us. We have decided to try for an unmedicated birth in the hospital. Our Dr. is extremely supportive, and that has been a real blessing to us. I have also finally come to a place in myself where I know that I am going to try for the unmedicated birth, but that if for some reason I am not able to do it, I will know that I gave it my best shot. I am going to do what I can, and see how it goes. I know that if I absolutely commit myself to doing a natural birth, and for some reason am not able to carry it through, I know that I personally would struggle with that and feel guilty that I wasn't able to live up to the standard that I had set for myself. All of my energies and thoughts will be focussed in giving it my all. I guess that all I can do is try!

    At our 38 week appointment yesterday our Dr. did an internal exam and said that I am already 1 cm dilated and 50% effaced. He said that he could feel that the baby's head was already very very low. All day I've been having lots of braxton hicks and backache, so I'm really hoping that maybe this baby's starting to get ready to meet the world!

    (sorry that ended up so long... if you made it to the end, I applaud you! )

    I'm glad to read that you are trying to go natural, my feelings were similar to yours. I'll tell you it wasn't as bad as I thought. Of course, we are each different. The hardest part was transition, but by then you are already too far along for drugs anyway...
