Hi girls, I'm apparently due Sept 24 (the impossible due date given by my doc) although my due date from LMP is Oct 4, so really, I have no clue when the baby will be here but I'm pretty sure it'll be before Sept 24.

I'm trying to do things as naturally as I can (I'm cloth diapering and breast feeding too - that'll make it more involved and interesting for me, kinda like driving a manual car). I dont want the epidural at all, mostly because I dont want the needle in my spine. My mom had a drug-free labour and she survived so I'm sure I will too. I'm pretty lucky that my OB practice is pretty liberal, they dont really interefere during labour (had my first childbirth class today) - they wont even do the IV unless the mom is dehydrated so I'm pretty happy right now. I was worried my docs would be all rigid.

Well, just saying hi, hope to learn alot from the experiences of BTDT moms and to share mine when my time comes.
