Ok babee in case you haven’t noticed we have been busy helping you prepare to leave the nest. Technically the careproviders don’t consider you late until this Friday and even then we still have a little more time. This is a good time because really there is no rush so I can pick and choose what things I do to help you along and follow what feels right.
Here is what we currently have going on.
In the past few weeks I have had three sessions of acupuncture for cervical ripening and one acupuncture induction session, drank gallons of raspberry tea, walked a million miles, had massage to encourage labour and lots of general good things to encourage oxcitocin. Today we opened the drawers in the bedroom. When F was in her mama’s tummy and labour was long and hard, her mama send her dad home from the hospital to open the drawers. It helps open things up. We opened nine because that means longevity and so you will have a long life when you come.
F and I are also making cookies and crumble , going to movies, making deals on Craig’s list and hanging with friends. On Friday if babee is still not here we have the non stress test and start drinking midwife cocktails. Most importantly I swim almost everyday so that my hips don’t fall off.
