Today's update is that there is no baby yet. We are apparently still quite content to stay in the quite cramped quarters of Mommy's tummy :) My contractions are still increasing in intensity, but nothing that suggests labor is imminent. I'm a bit exhausted from all this pre-labor stuff, but I've also been able to drum up enough energy to get a lot of cleaning and cooking done this week!
The next thing I want to do, if I have time, is to get some birth supplies for the kiddos; little things they can do to help with labor. If I get around to that I'll be sure to post my ideas here for anyone else who has little ones that might be attending a birth.
Other than that, my midwife is back from Bangladesh, my birth tub liner is here, the birth kit arrived and I have my labor and delivery snacks and drinks handy so I'm pretty sure we are ready to go! Any time little one...
I also wanted to be sure to let anyone know that the current plan is to live-blog the birth. There are lots of people who have asked for text updates, but why not just post updates to the blog?! So Iakabos and likely my dear mother will be updating everyone as labor progresses. Don't get your hopes up though; I have intended to live blog births before but they have always happened too fast! We will try to be on the ball this time!
If you don't want to miss the live birth post, be sure to subscribe to our blog (should be the button on the right-hand side for desktop users and the top I think... for mobile users?) If you want to subscribe but can't find it let me know and I'll be glad to help! You can message me on our Facebook Page or send us an email (address is at the bottom if you scroll all the way down).
We are super excited for the little one! Can't wait to share the journey with all of you!
