I love the 36th week!  Not only is Attie growing bigger and stronger, it’s the week before I’m home birth eligible.  Meaning, once I hit 37 weeks I’m free to labor at home.  So the 36th week is the prep week.

Pull together the home birth supplies, home visit with my midwife, do the deep house cleaning, make some food lists, alert the people on call for my kids during labor…yep, the prep week.  Once I hit 37 weeks, while we’ll likely have weeks before we meet our boy, we’ll be in maintenance mode–of the house, of the daily activities, of my sanity.

36 weeks with Attie is a big deal!
