I am due with my second child next week, and I am a little nervious, because it is going to be a home birth! My first (a boy) was the textbook hospital birth, and I wanted something different the second time around. The problem is that I have had the worst year, and it all started about a month after I conceived. My husband of four years (today, happy anniversary) left me and our son, for a married female truck driver. Yes, you heard right. And right now we of course are going through a divorce, and he is living in another state with his fiance. And they are trying to make a baby together all the while I'm alone down here trying to give birth to one. And thats the sugar coated version. Did I mention that he stopped paying child support, because he willingly quit his job to go live with her. So, I am feeling very lonely right now and Christmas is just days away, and then new years all the while dealing with an infant and a toodler on my own. So, when it comes time for the birth of Juliet (it's a girl - PS the first grandaughter for his side of the family who have been waiting for one for over 10 years, they have 7 grandsons) hehehe, she just happens to come now!!! But anyway, any words of encouragement for my birth day, so I don't feel scaried or helpless, or depressed????
