Today was the 36 week midwife visit. We nailed down ideas and wishes for the actual birth, It is nice for someone to ask you what you envision for the birth. I know that we are spoiled. So, here are some of the decisions made
1. Nathan (daddy), Kathy (grandma), and Kelly (doula) will all be present at the birth hopefully.
2. Lighting will be low in the room and I wil labor in and out of the water, and will try to squat for part of the labor process (opens the birth canal by approx. 10-15% more).
3. Baby will receive vitamin K upon birth and the PKU blood draw. He will not receive eye treatment as it is mainly to prevent infection from STD's, which is not an issue.
Also, it turns out that little Luke does not have a big head, and is pretty normal in overall size, except that he is long. The midwife was surprised at how much he had to curl up (and I am not a shortwaisted person!). So that all sounds good to me. Bring on the 8-8.5lbs as long as the majority of it is not in his head.
