You sound like my mom 🤣. Fine I’ll keep the midwife 🙄. I just don’t want anyone to talk much during my labor, I know that for sure. Pain is something that focuses me, hopefully that will be in my favor.
Make sure you tell her that ahead of time.

Our midwife was pretty cool and very accommodating.

2nd kid was born to an Enya CD... but the other kids had no music. :idunno

Some moms like candles/ smells, whatever.

The biggest help we found was to "ride the wave". If you tense up to the pain it causes it to be much more painful.

All of the hippy mumbo jumbo "ride the wave" etc. Was actually helpful.

Is it bad for me to say I don’t know who Enya is?

Pain is something that grounds me to reality, I had a really bad skin picking problem when I was a teen because the pain of picking made it easier to focus. Especially on tests.

This is just one song, but we had an album of hers on loop..... a single cd.... for 9 hours. :barnie
Ok to be fair I was born in 1999, but I really really like that song! My favorite artist is James Taylor. My dad hates him LOL!

Eyes open at 4:17 I wish I could sleep late! Coffee is ready. It is raining! :weee:weee:weee:weee:weee

Looking at radar, it started around midnight and should be gone by noon. It is a soft drizzly rain with a few scattered hard rains. South of me there is a band of hard rain, I wouldn't mind having, but I will take what I can get.

I'll be working inside today. I'm giving a neighbor a tall 4 drawer filing cabinet, maybe I'll empty that today.

I feel the same, give me 20 minutes and I’ll be sleeping again. The rain here is treacherous today. No school today so who knows what we will do.

No rain here today. We have really heavy fog this morning!! Hope it burns off fast but, with current weather, no sun, slow burn. :( will be slow drive to work as this is over a wide area. Maybe a 300 ft visibility out there.....hope it clears a little in next half hour.

Guess I'll have another cup while I wait. Ahhh, hot coffee!
