"We have a secret in our culture, and it's not that birth is painful; it's that women are strong." -Laura Stavoe Harm
My Midwives (and great friends): Dzhan and Laurie. It's been pretty fun to be pregnant at the same time as Dzhan (her first!). We are due within a week or so of each other. Hopefully we can time it just right so that Laurie has a nice long nap in between our births.
*I am gathering a play list of songs for labor and birth. I find myself drawn more to classical music over synthesizers and such. Must be the ballerina in me. I already have Debussy, Pachabel, Tchaikovsky, and a bit of Yo-Yo Ma. Other Suggestions?
*Trying to make extra meals and freeze them for easy dinners after baby comes. Any good recipes?
*Considering one of these to wear after the baby. Feedback?
*Still mulling over names. We have a few favorites but nothing concrete. Anybody have any input to offer? (our last name is 3 syllables and starts with the letter P. We need a name that has only one or two syllables.)
*I loved my beco backpack but it didn't come with a newborn insert. I made the sling, but I am also curious about the moby wrap. Can anyone with experience tell me if it is too hot to wear during the summer?
Okay, that's it for now. Thanks guys.
