Laugh til you pop?
Anyone have any hilarious suggestions for Camellia?
I'm currently 37.5 weeks pregnant, and our home birth is (hopefully) quickly approaching. Our midwives recently explained to us that the most common reason women end up needing hospital transfers is that they become too exhausted to continue laboring at home. To avoid that eventuality, they advised me to get as much rest as possible in the early stages of labor (my husband is concerned that when the excitement of labor + the nesting instinct kick in, I'll go crazy doing a million things and wear myself out). To that end, we're talking about watching funny movies together while we're waiting for things to get going. I've also read that laughter can be very conducive to relaxing those pelvic muscles (the same principle as when you nearly pee your pants laughing). So does anyone have any recommendations for funny, light movies that nearly had you bursting at the seams? I'm thinking something mindlessly entertaining with no tense moments.
