hiccups and doulas

Two nights in a row our Babyfoo has treated me to hiccups in utero! Luckily they haven’t lasted very long and I think the first time I actually fell asleep to them. As someone who really hates having hiccups myself, they weren’t that bad. I just hoped they didn’t bother him.

We met with some doulas today to see if we want to have one attending our birth. I’m not completely decisive one way or the other, but we agree it would be a relief and a luxury to have someone we’re comfortable with, and who is knowledgeable and experienced enough to coach us through delivering our first baby. We’ll have a few more interviews before we decide for sure.

Only four more weeks until I start my maternity leave! Even less since next week is a partial holiday. Which will be great because I feel like I haven’t had *time* to have the urge to nest yet.

    Hi Guys,
    Just stopped by to see if there were any updates, knowing full well there would be …getting ready for Christmas. I’m looking for a ‘giving’ list. Thoughts?
