i want a home water birth. i am seeing my MW for first time next week and while i ws filling hte form today i asked the receptionist what the MW was like with HB's and she said it will be fine and wont be problem.
im a little worried about being pit reliant, i had a cold induction with mu 1st baby, spontanious labour with 2nd, augmentation due to Mec and stalling at 3cm for number 2 and pit augmenation due to stalling and blood in the waters with number 4. i am worried at no being able to progress with out help, but i know now that with the last on i didnt progress as i was strapped to a bed for hours on end, it can be coinsidence she was born less than an hours after i was sat up for epidural placement. if only i had been "allowed" to get up and move i would of been OK, same with baby 3.
i am concerend that i wil be told "you cant have a home birth for X Y Z reason" and am looking into the validity of those reasons.
my kids can be there if they want, and im going to ask my sister if she wants to come too, she will be 18 when i deliver.
i am crossing my fingers this baby comes on or very close to their due date, because f its late by more than 2 weeks im cutting in to the school year and thats bad for these reasons
1) i may get arrested for assault if some one asks me "have you not had that baby yet!" err yeah i did but i didnt like it so i put it back!!!! Kidding, i wont hurt them, just astound them with my dry wit. or confuse them, depends on who it is!
or 2) DS2 starts school for the first time and its going to be a big thing for him to deal with, add in a new sibling and the boy who is a handfull by himself is going to be even more of a challenge!
3) i already have a September birhday, i dont want 2 in the same month.
but at he end of the day, its not up to me when baby is born, they will be born when they are born.
