    You're sounding good Stacey. This is the final stretch, the big wait. all the what if's don't matter. You have your game plan in place. You have your support team in place. Your only job right now is to "be" and allow yourself to bob and weave as things come up. Flexability is your strength. Stay well hydrated and get some rest and everything is going to unfold! Looking forward to it!

    Blessings,

    I've just finished reading all 11 pages, it was fun to get caught up on your lodge! My goodness have you been through a lot. I'm so glad your pregnancies have been so easy on you, my pregnancy with my daughter was wonderful I felt sooo good the entire time it was amazing to me - this pregnancy not so lol Regardless I DO think some women complain far too much & concentrate so little on the positives.

    Im so glad your baby shower went well & even more so that you received such a positive reaction to your homebirth, yay!!

    Your birthing space looks wonderful & I love the little birthing altar you have set up. You also look fantastic!

    I always know when I'm about to go into labor (w/in a week) because I get super emotional AND cranky - it's like clock work so I hope that that's a GOOD sign that you layed in your couch and cried for 15 minutes lol

    Stacey, I just suddenly thought about you and had to come and see where you were at. Perhaps things are moving along as I had SUCH a strong urge to check on you (at 11.10pm!).

    I really hope that things go well for you, I can't think of anyone I would rather see succeed at having the birth of your dreams. I promise to be better at checking in! GL!!!

    Last night, DH & I had a really nice long talk about birth stuff, names, wondering what this little guy is going to look like, stuff like that. I've made a list of affirmations & Hypnobabies cue words & quotes that are important to me, that I have posted in every room, and we went over those, why they are meaningful to me, why I think they will be helpful. I had my doubts about him for a while, but he's really pulling through and I know he's going to be a great support in my birthing time! And then we more because we both wanted to than to try to get baby out, kwim?

    There were a couple of times today that I thought this might be it. Tiven was being a handful at lunch and I wasn't handling it very well, and DH told me to go lie down for a bit. So I went up front & lied down on the sofa & put on the "Easy First Stage" CD just to be quiet & peaceful for a bit, and I had a few pressure waves while it was going! And then later in the afternoon I went for a long walk & to the grocery store, and took the bus home. When I stood up to get off, I swear I could feel Ginger Baby drop lower! That triggered a ton of cramping but it stopped when I got home.

    I'm trying to stay positive but watching the days tick by on the calendar is depressing. I know things are moving along, I'm just at the point where I wish they would go a bit faster. I slept about 12 hours last night and still feel like I could use more sleep. And today I've been barely hungry at all, I've eaten a bit here & there just because I know I need to, but I don't really want to. I cleaned my breast pump last night and I think I'm going to give it a try while DH & I are watching a movie in a bit and see what that might do. Tomorrow is my O-based due date, maybe he's just hanging out waiting to be "on time."

    I'm so glad your dh is starting to pull through, how wonderful!! I also think it's exciting that your having pressure waves & things are starting to progress for you. Are you useing EPO at all? Have you thought of getting the "Baby come out NOW!" Hypnobabies script?
