Birthing positions

With my daughter I was in the most common position of laying on my back and a nurse and my hubby helping hold my legs back.  I was just hearing and reading about how more and more women are giving birth in a variety of positions.  I even know a lady who gave birth standing up since her back labor was so painful she could not get comfortable.  Another lady I know told me that she was on her side and it was really helpful in decreasing her pain.

Here is a great article that list the advantages and disadvantages to each position.  CLICK HERE

I am just going to go with the flow and do what ever feels most comfortable for me.

What way did you give birth?

With all 3 of mine I was induced so not a lot of moving around options for me :( But this time I had horrible back labor. Was able to stay out of bed most of the time which helped. Labored in a rocking chair and walking for most of my labor. When it came to checked of course they wanted me back in bed. But they actually sat me up right away after cause they knew I couldn't stay that way. So they set the bed up as much as they could and then took off the end. It was pretty much like sitting in a chair. They had the stirrups naturally but with the bed set up like an easy chair and 3 pillows behind my back I was pretty much squatting. It was my easiest delivery of all 3 and I think it was due to being almost up right. But when you get there you will know what works for you and at a certain point, you really don't care too much and your body will literally take over!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
