I am 38 weeks. My baby is full-term (between 37 and 42 weeks are considered full-term). He is in a good head-down position. I can feel he started to drop down lower. My due is October 3rd. He is just waiting for the right time to be born.
Am I ready?
I am going to have a baby at Kawloon hospital in Suzhou. I have gone to their delivery room twice. I have got all answers I need from doctors and a head nurse. I have packed for me and baby. I went to hair cut. I have not decided if I want epidural. My doctor said I will have a baby within four hours without epidural. The doctor also said it will kill 40-60% of pain, not too much (because having some pain will give woman pleasure experiment of laborâ€¦â€¦). I am afraid of pain, but I got feeling because of epidural, my first labor was 12 hours (I was completely numb).
Are Jesse and Akiva ready?
Jesse has been nervous, but I donâ€™t think he is ready. He has not even known the phone number of the hospital and babysitter. I think guys never be ready unless they see a baby. Akiva is a happy little baby. He is the same way as his daddy. He wonâ€™t be ready until he becomes a big brother.
