Home Visit

I had my home visit with the midwives today. I’m happy to say that I got the stamp of approval for my birth plan. My plan is this, Sunday I’m 37 weeks, so he is safe to come any time after that. Thursday or Friday (7th or 8th), I am going to pull out my bag of tricks. It will be a night of acupressure, lots off walking, squatting, evening primrose pills, clary sage and lavender essential oil foot and ankle rubs, castor oil cuisine and that other thing that you can do to speed things up (won’t my husband be happy:). But I know that all of these things are just nudges, so if he really isn’t ready to come, he won’t. At my appointment next Friday, they will add to my list if I need it :)

This way, Matt and I will have the weekend together before he has to go back to work and the weekend to make arrangements for the girls. Mom will be here the next Friday and I can still go to book group on the 16th (I’ll go if I’m still preggo, but not if I’m in labor. Joey, you’ll have to lead the discussion without me).

Don’t you love how I plan the birth of my son around my social engagements?

    It could be an interesting book club meeting if I have to lead the discussion since I’ve never done this before!!Good luck with your birth plan :-)

    I hope he’s obedient and will come out soon. Mom will be there in a week so maybe she’ll be there for the birth!
