    So great to read your intro! My mom is a PA and when I told her I was getting hypnobabies her response was "good luck with that". Why is it that medical people can't have an open mind?? Anyway, So excited for you.

    So today was supposed to be my home visit with the midwife, but she had to cancel because another lady was in labor. I totally understand of course, but I actually haven't seen my midwife in over 3 weeks, due to how sick I have been. So I am really glad she'll come some other time this week, maybe tomorrow. We're playing it by ear. The RN who will assist her and act as a doula during the birth, Hope, came by though, which was nice. I talked to her about my concerns over tearing and she said she will be ready to support me as much as she can during labor and pushing to prevent tearing.

    As far as the bronchitis goes, I am doing much better! I still have a nasty cough, and probably will for awhile, but my other symptoms are gone, other than feeling totally worn out and low energy. I still have morning sickness though, I threw up this am. THAT has gotten so old, it stinks like a rotten corpse, this throwing up nonsense!

    Otherwise I am fine. I am not feeling impatient, or fed up with being pregnant. I have some occasional heartburn still, though not as bad as it was. Hope said he's head down, but not engaged at all, I'm still carrying pretty high. Other than being uncomfortable at night and low energy, I feel fine, and am SO glad to finally not be sick as a dog with an URI!

    I still need to wash the baby clothes and organize the nursery, so that is next on my list.

    I love reading all your updates! Especially your birth story - thanks for sharing that. Good luck with the washing and organizing, for some reason I dreaded that with DS and ended up doing it the day before he was born!

    Can't wait to follow along as you get closer and closer!

    The home visit went well. As I expected, he's not engaged, he's pretty high and I am not all all effaced or dilated. I really feel that he's going to be late like Poohs was, but you never know. So it could be 3 weeks, or it could be 5! My energy is still really low, but I got a rag quilt made in the past few days for my gift exchange partner on the June 2011 board, and am feeling really good about getting something accomplished! I am also feeling pretty guilty, because my 3 year old has basically been spending all her time watching videos while I've been sick/resting. So she's going to have a nap in a few, and I am going to try to straighten up a bit, then I am hoping to take her out to do something fun tonight. Not sure what, but my DH will be out late at Bible Study, so I want to get some quality time in with her, especially as soon she won't be able to claim so much of my attention. I just LOVE the guilt that comes with being a mom!

    Here's a pic of the quilt. I am going to make an identical one for my little guy, hopefully next week:

    That quilt is sooo cute! And don't worry about your daughter - she may be giving up a small amount of time with mom, but it'll be more than made up for in time with a brother.

    So glad you are feeling somewhat better! I can't imagine throwing up this whole time, you are a strong woman! My kids have been watching way more cartoons then normal too. I feel so bad but keep telling myself I will be a better mommy after baby comes. I hate that when we play outside, all I can do is sit in a chair and watch them. But I keep reminding myself I gotta listen to my body and take it easy and it won't be this way for long.
