We shall see what Israel West decides to do!
The midwives and their apprentice came yesterday to visit with the whole family. At birth we will have TWO midwives (I have seen them both the entire pregnancy) and their apprentice. I was nervous about having an apprentice here. Would I feel crowded? But after meeting her yesterday and listening to her talk, I felt totally comfortable!
Israel is in PERFECT position! That makes me happy! I tell him every single day that he needs to stay just like he is and it seems he already knows how to obey.
I got my birthing kit!! Yay! My friends have given me tons of towels, pads, shower curtains, etc. My friend had a homebirth with Kari and Brielle back in January. She has lots of leftover goods too!
The midwives bring the birthing pool, I provide the liner. It is pretty big so we decided yesterday that it would have to go in the living room. We made sure the hoses would hook up to our sink and its a go! Maybe I will have a water birth, maybe I won't. Again, I am approaching this with a marathon mindset. When I get to that hill, I will conquer it. Not going to plan for it now! I am not in control, God is! He has this day already planned and I have to rest in that. If not, I will go NUTS!
I do not have candles or music chosen. I don't think I will want any of that. I am trusting Jeremy, my family and my friends to just fill in the gaps of stuff I may need during labor and delivery.
TOMORROW we are having our pictures done!!! That means for the first time ever, I will have maternity pics!
I need to post my 34 week picture soon! Maybe this afternoon! First I need makeup and real clothes on other than pajamas!
