I've given up forcing Ada to nap in her crib. (Given up forcing things in general, really -- but more on that another time.) Usually we end up in some horrifying struggle. She cries. I cry. She laughs. Hours pass. Nothing gets done. So, she slept her first nap in the swing. The second, we took a walk through the neighborhood.
In between snoozes, Ada was my little helper. We froze bananas. Baked Bittman's yogurt biscuits. Folded laundry.
But that's not what I'm writing about today. Today is Ada's 19 week birthday. (I lost track, so I had to count!) I guess each Wednesday, I think back to that crazy day in November. When the contractions started getting intense so very early in the morning.
I wanted to ask you all, just as I did on Twitter and Facebook, if you'd be interested in a series on natural, med-free childbirth in the hospital setting. And -- more importantly -- if you have specific questions you'd like me to answer. A lot of the information I gathered and took in during my pregnancy vilified hospitals. I had a positive experience.
If so, please leave a shout or email us at writingchapterthree [at] gmail [dot] com. We're also looking for stories from women who have delivered at a hospital med-free. If that's you and you want to share your experience, please let us know!
