Oohh yaay here we go ladies!!

I can't believe we're here..
I've been drinking RLT since 32 weeks once a day and will continue and increase in a few weeks.
Also got my birth ball blown up to bounce on, should probably start doing it more regularly.
I'm doing my natal hypnotherapy CD as often as I find the time.
I want to start perineal massage; you've inspired me to look into it tonight! If that's not totally weird to say
My partner is also super eager to do his part haha, will be funny I'm sure a few days ago we dtd and it made me have a lot of BH's/cramps.. I guess it works!

Midwife said yesterday that baby is head down and was in the 'perfect position', although I can already tell she's wriggled but good to know she can get into the right position!

Got my hospital/essentials bag mostly done; planning a home birth hopefully (final decision to be made after our 37 week scan) but need the bag set up either way.

Pinkpassion we're baby wearing and breastfeeding (we feel we can't cloth nappy with the space we have at the mo, hopefully with second baby!). What carriers have you got?
I haven't had my maternity pictures done yet either because I also want my bump as big and defined as it's going to get.. but I'll do them around 36-37 weeks I think.
We're having our birth filmed completely (got the video camera and huge memory cards at the ready) and pictures too, it's my best friends job, I don't think it's weird! My mum filmed her birth of me and I've watched it and I think it's wonderful to know what is was like when I arrived and I want my daughter to have the same option

Phew that was long, sorry ladies! xXx

I will say that the first several days I did it I almost cried.. it was so painful and I could barely stand any stretching of that area to be done, but I was determined and pushed through it and that's why I truly believe it's helping!!

OOO exciting!! I have the moby wrap, the baby K'tan and a woven sling and then we will see from there once baby gets a bit bigger!! What have you gotten? I've already worn the moby wrap and baby k'tan as those will be the first two I primarily wear, the slings don't feel secure enough for me at the moment, but I'm sure it's just because I'm a nervous first time momma haha.. I've gotten really good at wrapping the moby so I'm excited about that!!
I'm glad to know you will be videoing and photographing the whole thing too!! Makes me not feel quite as weird!! lol

I was thinking of the moby wrap! I've ended up going for the hana baby as it is very similar but a lighter material which is good for me because I overheat super easily. I don't wear a coat even in winter and I'm in the UK we've also got a wilkinet and a traditional ring sling; we've gone for the maya wrap ring sling. Yes, like you I'm thinking of mainly using the hana baby until she gets bigger, then thinking about a simple clip carrier when she can support herself sitting upright. The ring sling is more for my partner, he likes things on one shoulder so perfect for him hehe.
Bah maybe we are weird, but it's fun to be weird!

I am due on june 26th and had my first cup of rlt today and i didnt really care for it but i can cope with it once a day for 2 weeks then i hopefully will be able to manage 2 a day and so on. I am starting to get rather uncomfortable already, baby is head down and has been for weeks i dont know if he comes out of that position but every check up he is there she said his head is just sitting at my pelvis yesterday, i am excited but scared of the labor aswell x

I'm 35w and need to get on that perineal massage business.

Now where can I get raspberry leaf tea or capsules?
