Halfway there! How’s everyone doing? Making the switch into “wow, I
really look pregnant now” or have you been there for a while? Kicks and
tumbles? Dealing with the glucose test, a possible amnio, results from
the triple screen, ultrasounds? Happy with your birth plans, your care
providers, checked out childbirth classes? It’s practically never too
late to change, if you’re feeling uneasy (our birth center had new moms
switch to their care as late as 34 weeks!). Putting together a (brief!)
birth plan, or does labor still seem ages away? It goes so fast — and
yet it drags so slowly.

Based on Truffles MKP directory, January doesn’t seem to be a popular
month for babies. Oh well… I wanted a January baby, and I got one.
I feel okay except for my sinuses and pre-pregnancy pains (that were
left over from the c-section with #1). Not that those are Baby #2’s
fault. Since this is #2, I don’t plan to do childbirth classes. I
don’t feel that I need them. DH hasn’t mentioned them either so we
probably won’t do them. I am still looking into finding Bradley
classes in Australia (with NO luck). If I find them, I will go to
them if I decide on a VBAC.
I have no birth plans at this stage. Other than, have baby born by
the end of January. I also have to decide if I am having a VBAC or a
c-section. Either way, I am going to have a fight with my hospital no
matter what I decide, I fear. This is based on my talks with the
specialist at the hospital. I don’t have to make that decision until
32 weeks at the latest. I also will not be writing out a birth plan.
DH will know what I want and don’t want. He is my birth plan.
Except for the glucose test, all my testing is done, and everything is
