Wednesday began week 28! I can't believe I am here. I have been waiting for this week to come since first finding out that we were pregnant via ultrasound. 28 weeks was the goal for the triplet pregnancy, but even more so now, 28 weeks means that if something was to begin, baby would have an excellent chance of surviving. I know things can still go wrong, but premature labor and birth is less about preparing for death right now. Morbid, I know, but this has been one of my secret fears.
I've begun to start planning for the birth, and by planning, I mean checking out stuff. Topic for today: labor mixtape. Are you going to prepare one? I've begun the process by organizing cool and calming songs. My birth plan included just me and the world: no drugs and hopefully no medical intervention. No drugs for sure, so I have been reading and rereading the Mongan method of Hypnobirthing. We wanted to do classes, but there are few in our area and they are all on Saturdays, which does not work for DH. Anyway, I have much practice in meditation and am hoping those skills will transfer to the birthing room.
But Mixtapes: what song or songs are a must have for the birthing process?
