Can't say I am shocked though. I feel like this baby is settling in for the long haul. I am not having much pre labor or Braxton Hicks contractions. I'm not dilated or even effaced. He is not even engaged as he called that off soon after he became engaged a few weeks ago. : ( BUT...thankfully he is not breached. : )
My midwife's sixteen year old son died last week. She was waiting for him at the bus stop. He tried to cross the street in front of the bus and was hit by a car passing the bus. She saw the whole terrible thing happen. I can not imagine the pain she and her family are going through right now. And to see it happen...that scene is going to play through her mind over and over for the rest of her life. Where is he spending eternity? is the question playing through my mind. It breaks my heart...
So, needless to say, I will not be having the midwife I wanted to. I have met 3 of the 4 other midwives now. I especially liked 1 of them as her favorite kind of birth is a water birth and she seemed all for doing things naturally. The NHS (National Health Service) policy has just recently changed to support water births. So I don't have to be the rebel and go against the policy to get my water birth.
On a different note,
Paul looks like he has been in a fight. He fell down the stairs last night. This morning his cheek is bruised and he has a black eye. Poor little guy!
