We are officially one week away from our due date of Oct 23rd. Getting super excited! Also getting very tired of being pregnant. Everything hurts and aches and sometimes I feel like an old woman every time I stand up. I knew the last month was going to be hard, and it has lived up to its reputation in every way. On the plus side I am sleeping really well which I hear is rare for being this far along.
We are doing a home birth which is very exciting! We also just finished our Bradley class. Bradley emphasizes natural childbirth, no medications or drugs, and the husband being 100% involved from start to finish as “coach”.
Oct 23rd is a special day for us in many ways. It is my husband Greg’s bday. And on 10/23 he was born at 10:23am. How crazy is that! It is also the day we got married. Back on 10/23/99 there was a full moon. Guess what the moon is doing next Saturday? It’s FULL! I’m convinced our little guy will be born on his due date. I hope I can be patient for another seven days. Haha!
Enjoy this wonderful fall weather and we’ll let you know when the excitement begins.
