    Yay for a head down baby! I'm sure a night of pampering was wonderful!

    I'm sorry I'm kind of late to the game here, but everything sounds wonderful! A night of pampering at this stage of pregnancy is about the best thing possible And yay for head down! I am absolutely horrible at telling, too, and finally realized that even trying was just causing me to stress about it--counterproductive! MW says head down, I'm believing her and sticking with it

    YAY FOR BABY TURNING HEAD DOWN!!!!!!!! It sounds like things are going well for you and you moving along! I'm glad you are feeling at peace with your birth plan. It's very important to feel comfortable and at peace with that.

    I thought about the SL Temple but I have a ton of family history in the Manti Temple. It was gorgeous! I still have yet to go to the SL temple and do a session but it is on the list. I've only done sessions at the Manti and the Provo temples. Sad thing is I haven't been in so long and I live 20 minutes away from the Provo temple.

    The massages sound wonderful! DH gave them to me a fair bit but i've never had any sort of pedicure or anything and think that would be awesome.

    Oh dear oh dear.... Everything has been going along so well. I have been feeling such peace about the birth and all of a sudden today I have been stricken with the most horrible anxiety! I hate this! I have such a hard time with the pushing phase. I wish I could stop worrying about it but I have been awake for three hours and I just feel like throwing up. I just can't stop thinking about it.

    Sometimes I wish I had never heard of natural childbirth. I wish I could just go along in ignorant epidural bliss and not want more. It's hard once you have experienced the exhillaration, to go back to that nothingness, but I have this stinking anxiety every time and it always ruins the last bit of my pregnancy.

    Entering very late here... Welcome to your lodge!

    I'm sorry you're having anxiety now after such a wonderful few days! I don't really have any advice except to focus on the fact that you know you can do it (as you've done it before) and you know it ends (wonderful little healthy and alert baby!). I hope you can return to feeling rested and pampered.

    First of all, I'm totally jealous of your Mother's Blessing! I would have loved to have something like that for DS's pregnancy, but we had just moved here and I didn't know people well enough to really feel comfortable suggesting it. Second of all, I'm so glad to hear your baby is head down!

    I understand your fears about pushing. The pushing phase was very challenging for me, but it was so worth it in the end. Sometimes anticipation of something is actually worse than the thing itself because our minds make it so big. When you are in that moment, you really have no choice but to live it, and soon it will be over and the intensity of it will be just a memory.

    I should of posted this last night, sorry guys! Here is a bit of an update. Those on her FB it'll be a repeat.

    Tamra doesn't have internet where she is at & wanted me to let everyone know that she's okay. She went up to the University today to meet with some of the midwives up there & in doing so found that her blood pressure was quite high & not going down, so they are keeping her there to induce her. She is due this Sunday & is very nervous about everything & hoping that it all works out okay & that she is able to deliver little LuLu without problems. If you guys could keep her in your prayers I know that would mean a lot to Tamra.
