As our baby grows, Kesh has been finding her own ways to ease the burden of a growing belly. Right now, her favourite thing is to swim in the ocean. The beach is a little rough but the ocean pools are perfect. We've been every day this week. I can see the way it relaxes and calms Kesh. The swelling in her ankles goes down and her body temperature returns to something closer to normal.
We love the water and have talked about heading down to one of the pools during early labour to help Kesh through the initial stages.
As we left the pool a few days back, an elderly gentleman arrived. Removing his shirt, he grinned and informed us that he'd heard of these water births and if that's what we were there for, he wasn't getting in.
We assured him we were just there to swim. In a few weeks though, who knows :)
