I need some positive thoughts and prayers for Thursday. As you know, that is D-day for this little one. Logically, I know what to expect. I've had 7 births, all pain med free. That is not to brag, but just to let you know that I remember the pain rather clearly. Way to clearly sometimes. I'm starting to have anxiety about Thursday, like I wake up at night and can't sleep. I know so much of the birth is out of our control sometimes and I'm doing everything I can to have the waterbirth I want. But if it doesn't happen, I don't think I will be scarred for life or anything. Sometimes the thought of getting an epidural is just so tempting. I mentioned it to Andy last night and he said "I know that's not what you want, you can do this", but I'm not so sure! Sorry to ramble, I'm just getting so nervous. So any positive thoughts and prayers for me and babe would sure be appreciated. I'm so excited, scared, and nervous to meet this new little one. Sometimes I wonder how I'll take care of another one when the others are so young, but we do just fine once baby is here, it's just all these hormones!!!!

Thanks ladies!

We'll all be thinking of you Mari! You're amazing to have done it pain-free seven times - I'm sure you can do it again .

And if you DO opt for an epidural then don't beat yourself up about it - it just means you get to experience a birth differently with the same wonderful end result - you'll be great - positive thinking coming your way!

Thanks to Meganpixel for my beautiful siggie!
