Don't worry, you'll be hearing A LOT more about this.

I'm going to have this baby boy naturally, and am preparing by taking hypnobirthing classes to learn to fully relax & trust my body to do what God (perfectly) designed it to do. It is life-changingly amazing.
Yesterday I WAY overdid it at Epcot & was in tears over my backpain as I tried to go to sleep. Matt suggested (after attempting to give me a massage, bless his heart) that I try some of the relaxation techniques so that I could at least get some sleep, and I swear on all I hold dear that I have ZERO pain today. A few deep breaths, some visualizations, and I was asleep, but I did not expect to wake up chipper & ready to go like this. All this hypno-voodoo is true. I have a testimony of it. Fear = tension = pain & that is one train I'm determined to not jump on with this birth.
Soooo now that I've come out of the natural childbirth closet, please, if you could, do NOT regale me with your stories of excruciating pain, failed attempts at going au naturale, or c-sections, etc. I don't want my brain in that city.
Ok, so now we're off to breakfast in cinderella's castle with all the princesses. Proof that I'm not a hippy.

You're a crack up.
I hope no one gives you a hard time about natural birth.
It was my goal with all my births.
Good luck.
You'll be able to do it Celeste.
I can't wait to hear about it.

You are ca-razy! (and so, soooooo brave.)

I once did a natural birth, and my head fell off.

I mean, you should do what you want though...

I'm just sayin...

No, but seriously, I am so glad the techniques are already working for you! I find that I still use them constantly: back pain, burned hand, stubbed toe, you name it - it's an AWESOME coping mechanism!

So glad you're having fun!
