I'll post some pictures later

Well my midwife sent me home with our birth kit and told me that anytime I go into labor now is safe and fine with her! I'm 38 weeks tomorrow (Tuesday), so technically I still have a few weeks to go, but I'll take what I can get. In fact, I kind of wish she hadn't told me that because now I'm getting really anxious, whereas before I had been fine to just be patient and let it happen when it happens. Anyway, now we wait....

Jocelyn has a been a little sick these days and I'm afraid she's given it both to Rob and I. She is just a little less active than usual, has a runny nose, and a freaking annoying cough. She coughs all night long and it keeps us all up. She has been crappy at sleeping these days, too, which really sucks because I sleep on the couch now (more comfortable for the giant pregnant woman) and making a billion trips up and down the stairs gets me all out of breath. Rob is really good about getting up with her, but sometimes she just wants her mom. We'll get through it all though, hopefully before the baby I guess I do want Ava to take her time. The less stress surrounding the birth, the better.

Speaking of our home birth, we are so excited! We've completed our Hypnobabies classes and even had our "practice birth" a few weeks ago. I feel like we're all set, other than a few household chores that need to be done. We're going to have yummy food and I will have my mom as my doula, my midwife, and of course my sweet Robbie to support me. We're going to film the birthing process (except for my privates!), so hopefully it will be as smooth and calm as we've planned on.

Okay, so I've just typed a novel and most of it was about Ava...sorry if you don't give a crap. Can you tell what's been on my mind lately??? Wish us luck! I'll be sure to keep the blog updated on any baby news!
