I am planning for a natural birth… I’ve been preparing as much as possible with techniques I’ve been reading from a textbook called Hynobabies which is a home study course for relaxation, birthing positions, and different ideas to help leading up to the and throughout the birthing process.
I even bought a labor TENS machine, which is used in the UK for natural births but no one has heard of them here in the USA. I also bought a labor ball to use at home in early stages of labor.
I would have loved to try a water birth but at my birthing center they don’t offer that option they do have large jacuzzi tubs to soak in which Martin thinks he will be using 🙄
Ohhhh, I love e-readers and tablets. I’m a big classics fan and I can download limited editions. I love the Bronte sisters, Wuthering heights by Emily and Jane eyre by Charlotte Bronte. Anybody else into a good classic read?
This is the book I’m reading now. Usually I’m reading about three at one time but I sometimes need to go back to what’s comforting, and I loved this book and am about ready to read the next installment. Anyway, it’s a smart romance, meaning the main female charecter is not some brainless girl who looks and acts perfect. She’s a BRAINY girl and I like that.
– Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty
(I’ve read a few of her other books too)
I like anything written by Steve Martin too. I usually find an author I like and end up reading all their books!
Annelee, Longitudes and Attitudes by Thomas Friedman sounds interesting. I tend to pick up books that are easy to read, light in context, or dramas. I prefer something I can relax with, I’m guessing Longitudes and Attitudes wouldn’t really fit that description! Why did you decide to read Longitudes and Attitudes?
