    That's interesting about the shoe size thing, I've never heard that but I can see that it may have some truth as a rule-of-thumb. Inuit women can make a whole set of clothing (that fits) from your head circumference (or at least they could in the 50's LOL they've probably gotten used to measuring tapes by now!). So I could see it having some truth.

    I guess they didn't say if they had tried the Gaskin Manoever for the shoulder dystocia?

    You sound good, hon!

    Sorry I'm late getting here - so many lodges, so little time!

    I have heard the shoe size thing. I'm 5'0" with a really tiny frame but big feet (size and my midwife told me the shoe thing. She felt my pelvis and concluded that she could "drive a truck through it" - I then went on to deliver an 8 pounder. So I believe it!

    I love the picture of you holding the baby shoes. Your belly is gorgeous! Enjoy it, you're going to miss it soon enough.

    "a human boob" - that's hilarious. I know how you feel. It's a daunting task - realizing that you're going to be totally depended upon for the survival of another human being - both nutritionally and care-wise. But try not to worry about it too much (easier said than done, right?!). When the time comes, you'll do your best, and you'll be great. The fact that you're worrying about it is a good sign - it shows that you really care, and you're really trying to prepare yourself for what you're about to experience.

    Congrats on being full term - isn't it a great feeling?!

    I totally can related to your worry about the future and your relationship with Nate. I have the exact same concerns about my future, and I am only 13 weeks! Hubbie and I were reading Birthing From Within last night, and there was a section on worry. The book said that worry was actually a good thing. Explore your worries and your fears and don't be afraid of them. It generally turns out that those mamas with the worries end up not having to face the problem they were worried about!

    Having a baby definitely changes the spontaneous nature of life. It changes routines and all the decisions you make, even the very small ones like can I take a shower right now? I remember after my daughter was born it was such an adjustment - having to think of someone else more than I thought of myself. Having to make all my decisions around her. I could no longer just go for a run when I felt like it, or go out with friends whenever I wanted. You have to plan and plot your life so much more.

    But life just becomes better, deeper, more meaningful. Yeah, your reality totally changes, but for me it was a change I was so happy to make because it was for my kid. It made it all worthwhile. And, while I don't know what it is like having a partner and an infant, I suspect it creates a deeper and more meaningful bond with your husband as well. My DH has been a wonderful father to my daughter (he's in the process of adopting her) and I'm so excited to be having children with him.

    Anyway...I'm rambling. I look back on that switch from maiden to mama with much, much fondness. It's a new stage of life and it's great to be in the mama club. I love it.
