So glad you got to see that movie! I haven't seen it, but I have to say I watched the trailer and had heard about it and there is a lot of truth to it.

I'm very happy with the birth we did have. It was very special. It was in a hospital and I did have to have pitocin as my contractions started fizzling and my daughter decided that maybe she shouldn't have broken the water 4 weeks early. But I never had any other drugs, no epidural, and I used my breathing exercises with all my might. It was a beautiful experience. I recommend any woman that to feel those contractions is to feel alive. Although it's an ouch part of being alive, it's there for a purpose to open everything up and to use an epidural and deny your body to feel that opening pain is not a good thing.

Wishing you lots of luck on these next few weeks!

Wow that has gone fast. I'm so glad that you are doing well. I've had 2 csections and believe me it isn't all that bad. You still get a baby!! Any hints of a name yet??I mean bumble is very nice but I think she may get teased at school. Congrats and rest now while you can.

while it is always great to have a birth plan, I think it's probably best to mentally prepare yourself for anything. Don't get too wrapped up in the ideal birth, because if it doesn't happen, you may be terribly disappointed. Like I said in my birth story, my birth plan didn't just go out the window, it went out the window, caught a bus, hopped a jet and spent the weekend getting loaded and playing slots in Atlantic City. It seriously affected how I felt about my daughter's arrival; instead of joy, I felt numb and frightened. If I had been prepared to accept things as they came, I think I might have felt better about the whole process. Twig in the stream.

I can't wait for you to be able to meet your lovely Bumble. :)

Wow! 7 weeks! Hope all goes as well as possible!

Wowsers, only 7 more weeks?! That is great and I'm thrilled that things are looking so good.

I too had such an idea of what I wanted my birth experience to be, but towards the end of my pregnancy I could see it would be NOTHING like that. In the end, I really was just relieved the babies were healthy, but I know everyone is different. My hope for you is that you get what you want, and that you and Bumble are healthy and happy!!

Congrats! I'm John's old friend (long lost old friend?) Julia, and I just found out you guys were pregnant when John congratulated me on being pregnant - I'm behind you, just starting my second trimester at 13 weeks, 2 days. I am so embarrassed that I am so out of touch I have to find these things out on the internet, but I'm so happy to know. I plan to come by Richmond some time here, though probably after your little one is born. I know that however you have this baby it's going to be wonderful. The real stuff has nothing to do with the birth procedure and everything to do with that bundle of joy at the other end. You are going to do great!

Love, J

Nikole, I hope you saw the fabulous Lisa Troyer. She helped me when I was pregnant with Daisy and was an angel, so good a reasuring me.
If anyone can do a safe (safer) amnio it is her. You and John and Bumble are in our prayers. I can't wait to meet this little girl!
