    AH (((HUGS))) hun, I can tell your haveing a hard time with everything. I wish I was close and could help you out some how. You so very close to seeing this little boy, and I pray that his birth is a wonderful peaceful thing for you. I know what it's like to have a deep desire for an un "assisted" birth, and know that it's not something your going to get. Please take care of your self and try and get some extra rest when you can. I think it's great to try and work through all your feelings in your lodge, we are here to help you.

    First (((giant hugs))) I remember going through similar feelings while pregnant with both my 4th ds and my first dd. I remember the inner turmoil I would go through as I thought about it and the more I thought about it the more upset I would become. I finally had to sit down & write out everything that I was feeling, I spent a good few hours going through an emotional brain dump and it REALLY helped.

    After that I decided okay, there ARE some things I can control and those things I will concentrate on making sure that so long as it's possible my wishes were respected, I also made sure those who would be with me for the birth were aware of what I needed. The things I couldn't control or change I worked on learning to accept & to succumb to what it was & not letting anyone or anything make me feel less because they had to happen. It was very freeing once I was able to reach this point & I hope that your able to find a place of peace during this pregnancy, and that however it turns out you'll be able to think back on the experience w/ fond memories.

    I can't figure out exactly why, but my world feels 'panicky.' We applied for Section 8 housing assistance back in March of this year and it's usually a 2 year process unless you have someone in your family that has a disability (Abby has Asperger's). We went for our appointment June 23rd with all the documentation. A month later we got a letter saying we were denied b/c my husband had broke a lease with a former landlord. Except that he hadn't. So two months later, we have to bring in more documentation after we got that all straightened out and they told us it would be 90 days before we had a voucher to look for a 5 bedroom home.

    I am thankful that we got approval in the mail yesterday in 90 days from start to finish (it was supposed to take 6 months!), I really am. We've all been crammed in this 3 bedroom 1 bath house for 2 years now. This assistance will help us afford the larger home at the same price we're paying in rent right now. We have 60 days to find a home, get it inspected by OHFA, and move in.

    And 60 days from now is: December 1st. Two days after my EDD with Nate. We've managed to find one 5 bedroom 2.5 bath home and we went to look at it yesterday. It's huge compared to where we are now, and I like the dishwasher and the fact that we all won't have to share a bathroom any longer. One of the 5 bedrooms will become an office for my hubby and I since it's very tiny and I work online with kgb_ and ChaCha, and so my hubby has a quiet place to study for sermons. Plus one of the bedrooms is huge b/c it used to be 2 bedrooms and it has 2 closets and plenty of room for the girls to all be in one room and have plenty of space.

    But anyway, onto the panicky part. I wasn't planning on moving until after Nate gets here and I'm trying not to feel panicked or overwhelmed but for some reason, I am. It won't take much to move us b/c my dad has a huge trailer and he and my uncle Jeff are going to help my DH lift the heavy stuff. Maybe someone else can put a finger on it as to why I feel this way. I usually don't sweat moving too much b/c I know it all works out in the end and I'm organized in how I do it. DH said he wants to make sure he's able to bring me and Nate home from the hospital to a new home...so time is ticking.

    Still having contractions every so often but otherwise, just trying to hang on for a few more weeks. My first NST is on Oct. 5 and I start in on biweekly visits next week. God knows when this baby is going to come...He knows.

    I applied for ChaCha quite awhile ago but never got he job LOL Do you like the job? I have several friends who work for them too. I really hope that he house thing works out for you guys, that can be such a stressful thing. When we were pg with our 4th ds (Seamus) we were in an awful rental but were finally able to purcahse a home when he was a few months old. It felt so good to have our own place ~ your in my T&P's.

    Remember to breath, one day at a time mama ~ or sometimes even just one hour at a time. Things will work out ((giant hugs))

    I do the transcribing thing for ChaCha. I didn't get in as en expeditor. They have 4 roles that you can try for. You might try kgb Julia-I'm making $300/month there.

    My blood pressure's a bit up again this morning-140/100 range and I am one cranky mama. Today's just one of those days where I wish Nate were here.
