Being as this is my first child I have no experience with a hospital birth vs . Any other option. BUT my dream birth would be at home . Sucks Im high risk because I would do it in a heartbeat! Instead im stuck in an icky hospital & i HATE hospitals.

:/ Even though it's not quite as hurtful anymore, I'm still sorry to hear about it!

I had GD with my first, 7lb. 9oz.



Honestly, I think the fear is what makes it harder- I heard there was like, a 13 lb. baby born in London not too long ago! You'll be able to do it :)



Have you ever had any birthing classes, or think taking one would help?

Well, I'm going w/a hospital birth, but since I've never had a child before, I have NO idea what it will be like. I may love it, I may never want to do it again. So, I guess we'll see!

My hospital birth with Kidlet went exactly as I had hoped it would. I'm hoping Nuggets birth is just as perfect. Different people, different doctors/nurses....it all adds up.

ohhh I want a ruffly diaper! I am so lucky I have an awesome friend on FB, the one who actually turned me onto the idea of CD and she is going to send me a few free ones of her stash that she no longer uses to try out on my son and get the hang of it before baby girl gets here! I am so excited!!

I only get one. Mine is next Monday. I'll be almost 24 weeks. If I fail the 1hr glucose, I have to take a 3hr one. UGH. I failed the first one with my son. Hope it's not the same with this lil mama

I get like that, too! Yesterday I started crying on the drive home from dropping off my nephew about something that happened last summer. It made me rethink my whole marriage and everything all over again, I hate it! I only get this way when I am pregnant, I think it's just all the changes and everything.

Ultrasound #5 tomorrow. Should be the last one I have for this pregnancy. Unless she's being a butthead again I suppose, lol. I'm all excited to see her again.
