Time to come clean about my lack of blogging. For those of you who didn't know, we're expecting baby #3 in March. I'm just tired and don't feel like doing anything. Yes, even blogging feels like too much work.
I knew Erik would be excited about having another baby, but I didn't know how excited until he announced to me about a month ago that he will be building a birthing chair for me. Initially, I thought, why stop there? Let's build a birth hut in the backyard too!* So now, it's official. Not only are we weirdos for setting up a tub in our bedroom and doing a home birth, but my husband now wants to build a birthing chair for me in the garage too.
You say, "Can't you just buy one of those off of Craigslist or something?" I say, "You don't know my husband. He hates to buy anything he can build himself." Actually, I did a quick internet search for birthing chairs and they're kind of hard to find. Go figure. Not everyone wants to get a splinter in their butt while pushing a baby out... including me. I didn't ask for a birthing chair, this was completely his idea, but I'm also not one to turn down a gift, regardless of how strange it will be.
Does looking at these chairs make you nauseous? It has that effect on me. I know how the baby is going to come out, but to be reminded of it by a piece of furniture is just a little too much for me.
I'm sure this will be a continuing story....
*Totally joking about the birth hut. I know it's hard to tell with us.
