I think these last days are going to be the hardest. Just waiting for time to pass by. I've been working on getting everything ready for the hubby to come home. Its really hard to focus on getting things ready for Liam, when I'm still trying to get ready for William. I have the feeling that sometime after the hubby gets back I'll have a freak out moment about how little time until I have to endure labor and birth a baby. Which takes me off topic. I plan on not having an epidural for delivery. When people ask me about this and I tell them my plan, everyone looks at me like I'm an idiot. This is really getting on my nerves. Do people really think that I am so dumb to think that labor isn't going to hurt? That pushing out a baby isn't going to hurt? I understand this, I expect pain. I also expect and plan to manage it by not using an epidural. There are pain relief measures available to get me through until I'm in active labor. Epidural is not the end all be all in pain management. I've worked in OB, I'm not stupid. Please don't judge me because I am choosing to not have an epidural. Now of course, if I have to have a c-section, I know I will get an epidural. I'll deal with that if that situation presents itself. I think that one of the reasons people think I'm not going to follow through with the no epidural thing is because of my reasoning. People think that people who do the whole natural birth thing are doing so because their all hippy like and don't want to medicate the baby. Well I'm not one of those people. I just dont like feeling numb, and I'm not cool with the risks involved in getting one. There. End of story. I have that right, so back off! Don't smirk at me and say, "oh you'll change your mind once you feel it". What are you trying to prove? That you are some labor and delivery goddess because one time you had a baby? I wasn't there judging your pain management then, so don't judge mine. .:steps off of soap box:.
So to get ready! The hubby's welcome home sign came in! I'm not going to post it on here until I know he won't have access to the blog until he comes home. I don't want him getting a sneak peak! But its super cute, and I can't wait to hang it on the fence of our house! I can't wait to buy groceries and get to include things that he will use at home. I'm counting down the days!
