8 Months Preggo!

Can you believe I only have 1 more month to go till I have this kid?? It finally hit me that I dont have much time left so i've been trying to gather everything I need: diapers, clean baby clothes, birth kit, labor prep stuff, etc etc. I am having my baby at home again and am *praying* that it goes as quickly and smoothly as last time (remember the coveted 2 hour labor?) but I have a hard time believing it'll go as fast this time so i've been doing some prepping on breathing and relaxation techniques, etc so I can be prepared in case its a long labor this time!
I am using a different midwife this time- her name is Dixie Story. She is super sweet. I loved my midwife last time, too but she is across town and is also more expensive so we decided that we needed to find someone I liked who was cheaper!
I sure cant wait to have this baby already! I think dealing with newborns is WAY more fun than being pregnant! I'd much rather deal with sore nipples than nausea; poopy diapers than heartburn; and sleepless nights than not being able to run after my kid! So here's to my baby coming healthy, and my baby coming early rather than late!

You're such a cute pregnant lady. I got your text, I sent you another invite.

You look awesome! I hope it does go smoothly! Does your midwife clean up the mess? That's what I think would be gross about a home birth.
