I met with my Doula (same one from Micah's birth) and she is planning on driving up from Bloomington for the delivery. We suddenly seem to have plenty of pink outfits and sleepers! I have a labor song picked out and my birth affirmation book ready to go. We have a 3 minute drive to the hospital. I guess you could say we are ready! My midwife thinks that I am overly obsessed with the labor and delivery. She also said that she sensed some anxiety from me. I assured her that my anxiety is only related to the anxiety that she alerted me to in our first meeting. And as far as being over prepared for labor?? The best way for me to relax is to be over prepared! At first, I was kind of upset but then I realized (just like most medical professionals) that she does not know me. She does not know that when someone tells me NOT to do something or thinks that I can't do something I see it as a challenge. That's just fuel to my fire! My new game plan is to do what I want and keep my mouth shut. I don't need any negativity at this stage. Believe me, I have had my fair share. I am excited to see how this all plays out!!!!!!!
LOVE it all, WORTH it all!
