I've gotten lazy with my blogging lately. Every time I sign in to write a post it ends up in my drafts and I never go back and finish.
So here's a synopsis of what's in my drafts:
I didn't realize it until I had a small breakdown about the baby's room. Nothing was turning out how I wanted it and I'll admit, I freaked out. Steve gave me a hug and said, "it's ok babe- you're just nesting." Well I'll be damned, I guess I am.
When I woke up this weekend all I could think about was what we needed to get done before the baby comes. Never mind that we still have the whole month of September and some of October. I need it done now. (I am blaming all of my irrational behavior on the hormones raging in my body.)
The good news is, I haven't taken to cleaning the house from top to bottom with a toothbrush....yet.
Maternity pictures, yes or no?
After a lot of going back and forth, I'm getting some maternity pictures taken. At first I didn't think I wanted to- but now I'm thinking, this could be the only time I'm pregnant, why not get some pictures taken? The best part - I found a photographer I really like, who isn't very expensive, that will come out to my dad's farm (where I grew up) and take the pictures there. I can't wait!
Birth plans are....
Scary, necessary, a wake up call...I could go on but I think you get the point. So many questions.....and they make me nervous, but at least I feel prepared having a plan (what's that saying about best laid plans??)
When I first got pregnant I thought, hell yes I want drugs. A few months in I thought, I should probably find out what all the options are. And now, after reading, taking classes and talking to other moms my thoughts are this....I'm going to try my damnedest to go it all natural. I don't like the sound of the epidural (numbness and inability to move my legs doesn't sound appealing) and the narcotics make me nervous for the baby's sake. I don't want her coming out drugged and having a hard time latching. But, I've obviously never given birth before and I won't rule anything out until I get there.
