    Was fun seeing where our baby will be born. Shared our birth plan with the nurses, I already discussed it with my OB.

    Here's our Birth Plan:

    Wait as long as possible to go to the hospital
    No unnecessary inductions/enhancement
    Labor as long as the babe is safe
    Wear my own clothes during labor
    Be able to move around, deliver in most comfortable position
    Have any equipment available to me
    No episiotomy
    I want to catch the baby
    Stephanie (who I instructed to refer to as my WIFE) will cut the cord once it stops pumping
    Wait to bathe the baby, vernix is good for them
    We'd leave a boy intact
    We're using cloth diapers
    Oral Vit K, no eye drops, otherwise regular immunization
    I'll be breastfeeding, we want to see a Lactation Consultant
    Because I'm breastfeeding, please avoid: sugar water, pacifiers
    I want to have the baby with me as much as possible
    Stephanie wants to sleep over in my room

    If you read this whole thing, THANKS! I tried to be thorough

    Went to my first LLL meeting, just to see if I like the group. The mommies were GREAT. Can't wait until the baby is here so I can see them more.

    Good luck. Enjoy him/her all you can - the years go by so quickly. My baby just went 24 years old - seems like yesterday she was an imply little girl who burst on the scene to make a huge difference to my life. I am so glad that she and I are traveling to London on Friday to see a football game (translate that to soccer) and have a few beers together to celebrate life. We have separately and individually nearly lost each other over the past few years and realize life is precious.

    Wish the 3 of you the very best in life, love and luck for the future. Never ever take anything for granted! Keep us posted!

    I certainly will Ronnie! Is it a Man U match?
