A Birth What??!!!!!!!!!!

So I went to my stitch-n-bitch the other night. I was actually feeling pretty good and I really like these women. But let’s face it most women who knit are relatively happy people.  Anyway I’m happily knitting and talking away when one of the knitters (a new mom) starts talking about  the babies birth. Now I confess in the last 5 1/2 months I have been doing my best to not think about the whole labor thing, (I am an expert at avoidance) but a phrase caught my attention. Blah, blah, blah, Birth plan… What the h***l is a birth plan I’m thinking! My basic plan, which I thought was everyone’s plan was to get said baby out as quickly, safely, and painlessly as possible.  Apparently not, now we need an actual plan.  I hit panic!! Do I need to file said plan with… who? what? The doctor, the hospital? What if it’s not good enough or contain enough information. Will they look at me and say, “Poor women,  how can she possibly be a good parent when she can’t even come up with a birth plan and this is why older women should not have babies.”

Now don’t get me wrong after 4 children I definitely have some ideas about what works and doesn’t work for myself and the baby, but a whole plan, it never crossed my mind. So my plan.. I’m going back to not thinking about it for another 4 months. I feel better already.

That said, I finished the baby kimono. the pattern is on my patterns page. I plan to make a little hat to go with it. I should also finish up my baby jumper today, so I’ll post pics when it’s totally finished.
