6 weeks left! 45 days? Doesn't sound that long ...
We took our "Birth in a Nutshell" class last weekend. It was refreshing and informative, but left me with anxiety. I think I'm more nervous this time because I know what to expect. They say labor with your subsequent children are shorter ... I hope they're right! 5 hours doesn't seem that long, but when you are in pain that long it seems like FOREVER! No birth plan this time around, but I did compile a short list of things I need my DH to do for me when I'm in labor (getting fluids is at the top of the list with changing positions every 30 minutes). I was SO dehydrated last time my pee was almost brown.
Blake is head down but with all the little limbs I'm feeling on the outside I think he's posterior right now (face forward / Sunny side up). All those little limbs are causing a lot of pain and pressure on my abs. On Wednesday I'll have the midwife feel his position to confirm. They say babies will turn during labor and just a few are born Sunny Side Up. Since this is my second child, I hope he turns. I'll just have to labor in positions where he is off my spine (on all fours, bent over, etc.)
I've felt a few menstrual cramps and cervical pinching in the past week. My energy is going through highs and lows.
