I picked up this thing called a breast mate at the baby expo...I set it up and it's pretty cool - it's got time,date,alarm clock, nightlight and room thermometer. Main feature though is breast feeding timer. One for left and one for right. Lights up on the opposite side to where you finished so you don't forget. It stores I think 2 or 3 weeks history then you download the info on your computer and can print it out! Technology these days. Really cute covers so it looks like a little animal face (I have the cow cover on) and the buttons for breast feeding timing are the ears! Also the light is red if the room is too warm and blue if too cold - cost us $80 but hopefully will be worth it can't wait to start using it!

Amy and beta, this is what I am worried about. Beta, you sound a lot like what i wanted my labour to be like. But I think being induced I will ask for the epi as the punch so to speak and the continuous contractions will become quiet stressful. I worry that will epi will lead to forcepts and other complications, as they say once you interfere it can cause more intervention if you know what I mean... I was all confident and now not so confident in my abilities.
Broom... I was wondering if you ended up taking the raspberry leaf tablets?
Good luck tomorrow Mrs Optimistic!
Thanks AmyEL! Am up and ready to get to the hospital - didn't sleep, too excited! Will post when I'm up for it - hope everyone else is well! x
