We slept in on Sunday until around 8am, got out of bed and had breakfast and started watching the Tour de France. I completely fell asleep again on the couch and didn't wake up until after 11am. Dang my sleep is messed up.
I am freaking out less after chatting with my mom friends on Friday but had a hard time this morning. I saw my OB-GYN for the last time today and it was hard to say goodbye to her. She's been with us through the entire process so far and I ended up in tears in front of her thinking about everything she has done for us. Hormones!
We're planning to have a midwife deliver our baby at the hospital. Corvallis has integrated nurse midwives into their hospitals so we can deliver at the hospital and but still have a midwife experience. The reason for a midwife? OBGYNs have tendancies toward C-sections, drugs, and medical procedures while midwives focus on natural childbirth techniques. I may end up with a C-section, which will be fine if it comes to that, but I want to try natural childbirth and see what happens. In my peer group, I don't know a single woman who has had an epidural. Either natural child birth or c-sections have been their results. We'll see what I can handle! It's the new peer pressure and I wouldn't care about that except I can see the logic in it.
We have 14 weeks left until the due date. Yikes! I'll take the epidural now!
