I thought hypnobabies was awesome. Getting through all the contractions was so doable and if I hadn't had 5 hours between opening and having my water broken I think I easily could have finished the whole thing just with hypnobabies. It also is super relaxing to do during the pregnancy (you listen to cd or MP3 tracks) and I normally just fell asleep (which is fine) there are a few things you actively have to practice but nothing difficult. I think it also just in general easier when you have given birth before and know what you found difficult and what you should focus on more while doing the course, for me that would be the pushing phase for example.

Katja--I'm so sorry about your Grandpa. Take time to grieve.

Ash--Can you tell me more about Hypnobabies? I'm interested this time.

AFM--Holy crap, this one is kicking my butt. I consider it a bad sign when I'm pulled over on the side of the road throwing up in the mornings. I didn't get sick until 9 weeks with Peter. I'll probably tell my boss today, just so she understands if I come in late some mornings. Otherwise, nothing new with me. I interview a midwife in two weeks, so hopefully that works out well.

Katja,

My sympathies on the loss of your grandfather. My thoughts are with you.

Also wanted to share that I didn't feel Selin move until around 22/23 weeks so don't worry if you haven't felt anything yet. I know it is different for every woman.

Sending lots of *open leg vibes* for your big reveal! I'm thinking blue for you, but I'm bad about guessing these types of things so don't put any stock in my guess. ;-)

Katja- I am so sorry about your grandfather!

Last time we were at the birth center.There is only one here in Hamburg and I hated all the midwives there except for one and I would never go back. You automatically have a midwife present at the birth here in Germany a doctor only comes if there is some sort of emergency. So I am going to be going to the hospital I transferred to last time as I really liked all the midwives there and the doctors and the hospital itself. My plan will just be to stay at home as long as I can. I'm definitely going to do hypnobabies again, I think it helped a ton.

Hopefully I'm back for good...it's awful to be without a computer for a week.

Welcome back to pregnancy !

Congratulations on your boys Leila!

Mari- it sounds like you've got everything under control with the new doc and I hope that you get the delivery you're hoping for.

Ash- I hope that your m/s starts easing up and good luck with your planned trips. I have a few coming up too, we'll see how I hold up on the plane comfort wise.

AFM- I had my 1st tri screening- all went well, but the u/s tech was such a crab. No explanations of what was being looked at and of course no chance for a sneak peek. I also had my 14 week appt- so far, so good and was able to schedule my 18 wk u/s- 3 wks from tomorrow I will hopefully know if William's getting a brother or sister. Apparently the m/s this time around caused a 4 lb weight loss (oops), but I am only 5 lbs over where I started with William. I hope to keep at this weight for a few weeks (until wk 28 maybe) as with William I didn't gain anything for the first 28 weeks.
