I need more songs for my labor playlist on my iPod, Suggestions?


  1. Rachael, these pictures are gorgeous! You are so beautiful!! I can't wait to see your maternity photos as well :)

    As for your labor playlist, I'm not sure I can recommend anything since I don't know what kind of music you like, but after your little boy is born, put on the song "wonder" by colin meloy (of the decemberists). It's amazing.

    all my love, b

  2. Just so you know... I had a size 4.5 shoe size and I now where a 6! It was heartbreaking that I couldn't get sneakers from the kid section anymore.
    As for music my son loved the sound of whales and taiko drums. I think the drums reminded him of my heartbeat.
    Good luck!

  3. Wow you are very beautiful and I have no doubt that your son would be the same. I'm quite excited for you and your husband and I love how you are keeping tract of everything, so I'm guessing this is your first child(?)

    I would like to do the same for my child if I get lucky.

    God bless and good luck!!!
