our due date is less than two months away. people keep asking if i am nervous, but all i can think is how hard can one be compared to four? but i am trying not to be too confident, since we are inexperienced with newborns (lovely girl was 5 months when we got her).
i am looking forward to the next couple months for doing some of the research and preparation that i have been wanting to do for a while. i am almost done with the two natural childbirth books that i bought (ina may's guide to childbirth and the bradley method). next on my list is the womanly art of breastfeeding. and after that i want to read several books from different perspectives about vaccines... i see that as a major decision and i want to make sure that i do plenty of research in order to make an informed decision. basically, i need to learn about everything that i didn't need to learn about for being a foster mom. :)
i also need to research and buy a set of newborn cloth diapers, so i would love any input from people with experience in that! i already have a set for 16+lbs that i love... so i just need the little ones.
i am excited for the blessing of this free time to prepare well for our baby.
as a side note, please pray for our little bun. my midwife is concerned because she is not gaining weight like she should, which could lead to complications. right now i am going in for extra testing twice a week to monitor how she is doing.
