Welcome to the Tales of a Kitchen Witch Blog.
Happy Birthday to me! I’m 33 today, and my birth kit arrived this morning from In His Hands Birth Supply! It was really simple to do- I just searched the site for my midwife’s name, and I ordered the kit she prefers. It arrived quickly too, since I ordered it on Monday afternoon!
In case you are wondering what is in a birth kit, this box contains:
I’ve still got to go thrifting for sheets and towels, and make up some meals for my freezer. Oh, and get the baby some CLOTHES because I haven’t done that yet. And the birth pool isn’t here yet…
But we are definitely getting closer!
Oh! I went back to the midwife today to check blood pressure/urine and it was perfect! Yay! I was so anxious about that. I sent a short message last night about refusing the scan/weight check, but I didn’t talk to my midwife today.
I didn’t see her until I was leaving and I got flustered and anxious and made excuses to leave. Childish of me, I know, but I’m just feeling really stressed out this week and I am so bad at explaining myself/dealing with the possibility of confrontation under even the best of circumstances that I chickened out.
So all of that is done with for now, and I’m going to go hang out with my kids. I might go get some cupcakes later and stick a candle in one for my birthday.
