    Well, this may be the shortest lodge in the history of the Birthing Naturally board.

    I'm going to the birthing center at 2 today to have my favorite midwife, who is on duty tonight and then away for 10 days, strip my membranes to try to bring labor on in the next 24 hours. If it doesn't work, then I'll just continue to wait (and hope not to go into labor for 10 days). I wouldn't try this if it would cascade to medical interventions, but my midwife assures me that it won't. (Ok, there's a risk with anything, but it's a tiny risk that, say, my water would break while her hand is up there.) I'll get an internal exam before the stripping just to make sure my body is favorable for it, and if not, then we won't do it.

    Please cross your fingers for me. I'm a nervous wreck about having an intervention like this. I feel like I can handle labor and have done so in the past, but the discomfort of the membrane stripping makes me feel chicken.


    I've been on bedrest since early November because of a muscle tear in my lower abdomen, so I'm eager to stop that.

    I'm also one of those people who is absolutely miserable during pregnancy, so for me birth is a cure and a chance to start feeling better. I had morning sickness for 19 weeks (it subsided 3 days before I was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance for the muscle problem which at the time they thought was kidney stones). So I feel like it's been one thing after another.

    I have a PUPP which isn't just itchy but also swollen and sore.

    One thing I want to mention. We will have a Saining (Naming Ceremony) 7-10 days after the birth, and we will not announce baby's name until that ceremony. Before then baby will officially be known as Little Owl (if a boy) or Little Fox (if a girl).

    Ok, so I'll keep y'all updated about how everything goes.

    Full moon and penumbral lunar eclipse tonight! Auspicious.
