Spirituality


So my water broke or maybe it was bloody show at 3am this morning… Feb 1…   We called the midwife and informed her of our exciting news…

We went back to bed and later realized we needed to dry the sheets I had washed last night and make the bed for birthing… I got hungry and had to pee… We both had our moments of excitement, anxiety, nostalgia,  and intimacy… Lots of cuddling and gentle kisses and caresses…

We were both preparing for a long day and reassuring each other through our actions we could count on each other for support, love, and guidance through this new birth experience…

As the day has progressed, I was able to spend time with our son… play, watch tv, and even eat a wonderful lunch prepared by my mother with lots of love… Whom we decided to keep our little secret that her one and only granddaughter was making her way to our world…

My husband took a nap while I played with our son and then I took a nap while he played with him…

Contractions have gotten stronger and closer together…

Now the trick… wait about 3 more hours for our son’s bedtime and officially let my mother in our little secret… I’ve been in labor since 3am…

I must say one huge difference between my hospital birth and the beginning of my home birth… is that I am calm, relaxed, and enjoying this beautiful adventure…

My husband has made comments about the differences between my behavior in the hospital and home… He’s even asked me several times if I feel pain… yes… I feel pain… but I’d rather like it to be put that I feel uncomfortable surges…

My motto during these surges:  Relaxation breathing with “I Trust My Body”…

To be continued as time progresses…
