    Last night was my Mother's Blessing and it was soooooo nice! Everyone brought me a flower for my birth garden (I plan to plant them when I'm in labor). SOOOOO many people came, even my midwife! I have way too many flowers for my garden. I'm going to have to plant them all over the yard! It was so nice to feel spoiled and listen to everyones wishes for a safe and peaceful birth and also listen to their birth poetry. It was really a wonderful night. Chimmy even massaged my feet!

    I have my next midwife appointment tomorrow. I will be 38 wks 5 days. I really hope we can figure out if she's head down or not. Right now I just can't tell. It's so frustrating to be overweight right now.

    Sounds like such a nice mother blessing last night! I'm glad so many people came to support and honor you. Thanks for sharing your story. Sounds like you have had many different experiences with birthing. So sorry about your 2 year old, how scary. Hope LO has turned for you and is getting ready to meet her family!

    What a nice sounding mother blessing! I wish I knew more like minded people IRL. You are blessed to have that! Hope your visit goes well with the MW and LO is head down.

    That's OK! I check my birth board occasionally but hadn't posted much. Thank you sooooo much for the wonderful massage and lavendar salt scrub tonight. I feel great! Oh and I love my cute toenails too!

    I had my midwife appointment this morning and she is calling this baby officially head down! She found the heartbeat pretty low and it seems like I have also dropped a ton because I went from measuring a HUGE 52cms to a big 47cms (totally normal for me). She is guessing only an 8lb baby. I'm glad. I have had three 8 lbers and two almost 10 lbers and I definitely prefer them smaller.

    I am really feeling peaceful about this birth. I am so excited to meet my little girl! I can't believe I'm only 8 days away from my due date! Crazy!

    My hot tub is all prepped and ready to go. I have almost finished preparing the spot for my birth garden and I am just feeling ready for her to come. I really am hoping for a July baby though so hopefully not too soon.

    Chimmy came by tonight and totally pampered me. It was awesome. She is such a good masseus. And the lavendar salt scrub was absolutely divine!!! She even painted my toe nails. I feel so girlie. LOL

    I can't believe your only 8 days away too. This pregnancy has flown by so fast! I swear you just told us yesterday about your BFP. YAY for head down baby!! It sure sounds like (and looks like!) she's settling in for the birth, I'm so happy for you! I can't wait to meet this new little one of your's. Tonight was fun - I love your family, it was nice to hang out for a bit & I'm so glad you enjoyed the massage & lavendar scrub
