Yeah, no clue? Me either.
There you go.
Is it too soon to just say that he's, well, baby sized? He's around 6 pounds, so smaller for a baby, but definitely still akin to something more human than fruit. We're bearing down (oh, ha ha, unintentional pun there) on the last few days as a family of 5. Our worlds are officially about to be rocked.
We had our second Lamaze class last night, and one mother in there, a very earthy lady if I say so myself (homebirth, midwife, eats lots of ground up types of grains, and wants everyone to know it, you know the type) made the comment that in order to have a natural birth, you must have an incredibly strong philosophy of birth. Meaning, essentially, that if pain meds are an option for you at all, you'll probably take them. I think this made an impact on Keith, as he turned and asked me, "Do you really think you can do this?" Because we all know that my birth philosophy runs more towards comfort than strength, but this is, in fact, a crucial financial decision. And I decided that I think I can do it. Money is, after all, a very strong philosophy as well. And I feel like we are being well-trained in our class (although after a particularly graphic video last night of birthing both baby and placenta, I'm wondering, did I actually do that twice? It's disgusting!). So hopes are high that my labor partner (ha ha, I called Keith a labor partner!) will get his head sorted out and get me my music and be ready to ah-hee ah-hee ah-hee ah-hoo all the way to the birth of little Seth. Or else, someone poke me with something already.
