Ever since I was at my niece's birth in 2005 I've been thinking about the perfect birth: where I want it, who I want there, how I see the day going, things I would like to be done/not done, noise level, lights...
How soon is too soon to get that prepared. When did you ladies write up your birth plan?
I don't want a birth plan to set out rules to follow... I more just want one to help me invision how the day will go. I have a fairly good idea of what will go on, but having never given birth myself this is a whole new world for me.
Did you ladies do any kind of envisioning of your day, and for those BTDT how did your "vision" play out to the actual event? Did it help that you pictured and planned the birth before hand instead of going in blind?
