    Oh my! Sorry I missed all the venting about your mom! Grrr, can I take care of her for you? It would be much easier for me to tell her off than for you to do it.

    So glad the fluids and everything look good!!!!

    Soon you will have a wonderful birth and can brag about it 100 times in front of your mom.

    Hi, sorry to jump in here at such a late date, but hopefully you remember me from a year ago and I'm still welcome over here...just read the last few pages, and wanted to send you hugs about the mom situation as well as the fluid/breathing thing. I could see Addy practice breathing through my belly for a long time before she was born--I don't remember exactly how long, but it was a few weeks. I LOVED it. It was one of my sweetest memories of being pregnant, seeing that little breathing motion and knowing in such a visual way that my baby was really in there, getting ready to come out. And she was born 100% natural and healthy at 41+1.

    My annoying-mother situation was a little bit different, but my mom was INSISTING that she would be present at my birth AGAINST MY WILL (I was doing hypnobirthing, and my mom really stresses me out--plus my birth center was really small, and even the thought of her lurking impatiently in the waiting room, which was right next door to the birthing room, made me want to run away to another state to have my baby). So I finally said: It's not your birth, and if you can't be respectful of my wishes, then I won't be telling you anything else until you get the call that she's here. End of story. She wasn't happy, but she did back off. BIG HUGS, though. Moms and all the guilt and drama that come with that relationship can be the most stressful of all sometimes....hang in there!

    I think I recognize you from the cloth diaper board.

    I am dreading the week after birth b/c I have no intentions of calling my mother when I go into labor (She's gonna be ticked!) as I've told her I don't want her there and I know she would show up, knowing that I don't want here there, if I called. And like your mother, she very much stresses me out. And like your birthing center, there really isn't a waiting room at all. :-/ They know I don't want her there and they lock the birthing center doors when there is a labor in progress, close down the center, so she couldn't get in if she wanted but I don't want to put any stress on my midwives or doula.

    My stomach has been upset for a week now! I've been extra uncomfy today and just feeling off, even more so, I really think labor is near *knocks on wood* if I go by what my head and heart are telling me-- but not many physical signs. :-/

    Remember that your head & heart can often times influence what your pregnant body does. Perhaps you need to stop answering your phone for a while, let your mother's energy dissipate, and your body will follow the cue that it's now peaceful enough to have a baby?

    Hope your hunch is right!
    My mom sounds similar to yours. I know she wants to be helpful, but it ends up just making me extra stressed. It's like they forget whose baby it is. I hope you can just relax and not worry about it. Let the MWs worry about it, if need be. I am sure they deal with stuff like that all the time. I know the nurses at the hospital told me they are more than happy to tell people they aren't allowed to come into the room or whatever.

    Had a WONDERFUL dinner last night with my doula and an amazing group of like-minded women-- "wonderful birthing energy" as my doula put it-- and it was! We met at 7 and talked until after midnight, got "kicked out" of two places b/c they were closing, lol. I finally had to call it a night around 12:30 a.m. as my ankles were bigger than a house and I was SOOO tired. It was sooo nice though to be around women that weren't afraid to just lift their shirts and nurse their babies right at the dinner table with us where they belonged, or who have so much experience with birthing their own babies naturally (one has 9 children, my doula has 7 of her own) and hearing their wonderful stories. I was just surrounded by love and support and it was really nice.
